New for 2019: SIG Sauer P365 XL

posted on July 16, 2019

SIG Sauer introduced its new P365 XL pistol in mid-2019, which combines the capacity, control and shootability of a full-size pistol with the concealability of a micro-compact. Built using the same magazine enhancements and borrowing elements from the original P365, the P365XL extends the barrel length out to 3.7 inches and the overall length out to 6.6 inches, giving you a longer sight radius and lengthened barrel for increased accuracy and performance.

“When the P365 was introduced, it hit the market by storm and was a game-changer when it comes to everyday carry by delivering unprecedented capacity in a micro-compact size. The P365 instantaneously became the top-selling pistol, and one of the most award-winning pistols in history,” said Tom Taylor, chief marketing officer and executive vice president, commercial sales, SIG Sauer, Inc. “With the P365 XL, we have once again redefined everyday carry by delivering 12+1 capacity or 15+1 capacity in a highly concealable, compact profile while bringing many of the XSERIES features to the P365 that are extremely popular and sought after by consumers.”

The SIG SAUER P365 XL is a 9mm striker-fired pistol, featuring the XSERIES P365 grip module with an integrated carry magwell, extended beavertail, a flat trigger with a 90-degree break and a 3.7-inch barrel for increased accuracy while retaining concealability. The P365 XL features an optics-ready slide, compatible with the new SIG Sauer Electro-Optics ROMEOZero and RMSc optics, comes equipped with X-RAY3 Day/Night sights, and ships with two 12-round magazines (15-round magazines available separately.)
