When looking to purchase a firearm primarily for concealed carry use, shooters generally aim for a firearm that can hold a lot of rounds, in as small a package as possible.
This appears to be a popular trend in the gun industry these days, as Sig Sauer claims they’ve built “the ultimate concealed carry pistol” in the new High-Capacity Micro-Compact P365 handgun – the likely answer to Glock’s 19X ‘crossover’ pistol.
Below is a press release from Sig Sauer with all the details on the new handgun:
“Newington, NH (January 8, 2018) – SIG SAUER, Inc. introduces the new High-Capacity Micro-Compact P365 – the ultimate concealed carry pistol. This revolutionary striker-fired 9mm pistol offers the perfect balance of capacity and concealment with unrivaled shootability and ergonomics. The P365’s patent-pending, narrow-neck, modified double-stack magazine holds 10 rounds in both the flush-fit and extended versions, plus one in the chamber, for a full capacity of 11 rounds – nearly a 50 percent capacity increase over pistols in its class. An optional 12-round extended magazine equips this micro-compact pistol with full-size 13-round capacity, allowing you to carry more, everyday – 365 days a year. The P365 is also smaller and lighter than most other pistols in its class, measuring 1-inch wide, 5.8-inches long, and 4.3-inches tall with a barrel length of 3.1-inches. It weighs just 17.8 ounces with an empty magazine.
