First Look: SIG Sauer P365 BB Pistol

posted on June 19, 2019

New from SIG Sauer in 2019 is the company's P365 air-powered BB Pistol. The pistol is modeled after the Sig Sauer P365 concealed carry pistol, and is CO2-powered, semi-automatic BB pistol which features realistic blowback action, offering a realistic training tool for owners of SIG's incredibly popular concealed-carry pistol.

The SIG P365 BB pistol is designed to fit in available P365 holster systems for easy practice of of your concealed-carry draw, making it an effective training tool for personal defense, as well as an enjoyable BB pistol for relaxing and plinking use. The 12-round drop magazine for the pistol holds 4.5mm (.177 cal) steel BBs and also houses the 12-gram CO2 cartridge for fast reloading. The 12-round capacity of the magazine corresponds with the 12-round extended magazine available for the centerfire P365 concealed-carry gun, providing owners with a realistic expectation of how many round they have on-board in their go-to defensive handgun.

“The SIG P365 9mm pistol has won numerous awards for its concealability, performance and exceptional magazine capacity and has quickly become the top choice for concealed carry,” said Joseph Huston, vice president and general manager of SIG AIR. “Our new P365 BB Pistol will give P365 owners and others who carry for personal protection a training tool of the highest quality when a trip to the range for live fire is not possible. The P365 BB Pistol has similar balance and handling characteristics as the centerfire model and holds 12-rounds for realistic training. The drop magazine also allows fast and easy reloading.”

The P365 BB Pistol shoots up to 295 fps, but velocity may vary depending on temperature and altitude.
