Well, Sig has released a new 365 that appears similar to the Glock 43, but holds 10+1 as standard capacity. You can see it on the Sig website, and it appears to be an interesting new pistol. As with most things Sig these days, time will tell, of course. . .

Ill be curious to see one in person, the stats are remarkably close to my P938, other than height, 3.9in vs 4.3. Its showing .1in thinner but I'm sure they are measuring the 938 at the safeties. Its also showing .1in smaller in overall length and 1.7 oz heavier. Could be interesting, especially given the added capacity.

Some thoughts: 1" thick, sig lites, 10 or 12+1 capacity, 1" thick!, less than 5" height in 12+1 config, 9mm, 1" thick!

The proprietary rail = FAIL, seriously Sig, WTF are you thinking with this? How hard is it to do 1913? This is just dumb and irritating.

DROP SAFE! (it better be) :deadhorse:

Very interesting.

My Sigs have been exceptional, far more so than my last couple of Glocks which needed parts replacements from day one.

I will keep my eyes and ears open to see how this might fit my needs.

Yeah. I have no love for Sig after having a lot of major issues with two of their recent guns.

No thanks.
I'm still very happy with my Sig P938 at 6K+ rounds, but from what I see on SigTalk, the P938 still seems to have continuing issues. I know they redesigned the Main Spring Housing/Sear Spring (I still have the old style), but still other reliability reports by unhappy owners that would agree with you.

Like kyjd75 said, time will tell.

It looks intriguing to me. I will absolutely take a look at one. I like the fact it is smaller than guns like the G43 and S&W Shield.

Comparing the sizes from soldiersystems, it looks promising for 10+1 capacity (12+1 with the extension!):

My SIG938 has been great, and for the size, I have been very, very happy with it. The G43, XDs, and others didn't cause me to consider them, because they were quite a bit larger guns than the 938, with the same capacity. I don't value that. But this one adds capacity, and I will check it out. It may or may not be good, but I am interested in seeing it!

Perhaps the thinness of the gun dictated a non-conventional rail? Even though I use rail-mounted lights on some of my guns, for a tiny concealed gun, I don't feel I need a light. Once someone puts calipers to it, we shall see if the non-conventional rail was dictated by the gun's small dimensions or not.

As for the drop safe, from the article, they stated that "SIG developed an entirely new, enhanced drop test protocol for duty handguns. They dropped the P365, 574 times in 26 orientations as well as five drops at 6 feet on concrete. For those of you are wondering if this new test protocol is going to be retroactive to older pistol models, it isn’t. However, any new models will be subjected to this protocol during development.

Additionally, they’ve put over 40,000 rounds through a P365 with no frame cracks."

The author did have failures while shooting in the cold they attributed to lube, but that will be something to keep an eye on (when the gun was cleaned, it worked perfectly, but...).

I am curious but not entirely confident in Sig QC after my issues.

That's definitely a possibility that they had to do the rail the way they did, due to the thickness of the frame. And I'm the same way as you, I really have no intention of carrying it with a light of any kind anyway. I always have an Olight in my pocket anyway just as part of my EDC. I just found it odd that they went proprietary with the rail on this gun, when the P320 subcompact has a 1913 also.

But yeah this is all great info, really appreciate you passing it along.

I for one won't make the mistake of being a beta tester for this one. But if it shows to be reliable, they are hitting pretty much all the basis with this little micro-compact. 10/12 rounds for this size gun will be a winner it it doesn't have issues. Will be interesting to see how it goes with this.

I immediately put this in the context of the Glock innovative thread.
While I’ve not had great experiences with Sig, they are trying new things and being innovative. This looks like a potential great package/size pistol.
