With Shield 1.0's < $300 after rebate, it's hard to see a $500 price (MSRP is $599 but they are on the market at $499).
A new 43 is well over $400 in many places and has plastic sights. If the Sig sells sub-$500 with Nite Sights I think it’ll sell quite well.

It's striker fired but it has no trigger dingus. Is it drop safe? Otherwise it looks like it would be kind of a nice size if it were a single stack and had a flush mag.
That is a question that I have, as well. Given the testing they stated regarding tests, it appears SIG learned their lesson from the 320, but how it works, feels, etc. has me curious!

The slide looks longer than it is apparently. The gun looks much smaller when shown actual size in the video. It's just 3.1 inches. The proprietary rail kind of sucks too.
If we think in terms of G43, the G43 has a width spec of 1.02" (slide width is 0.87"), height of 4.25", and length of 6.26.

The P365 is 1" (unknown actual slide width), height of 4.3" (within 0.05" of G43), and 5.8" length (G43 is .46" longer). The images I posted earlier seem to be consistent with those numbers.

The big variables (for me!) are:
  • 10 rounds (VERY impressive for the size!)
  • trigger questions (no dongle/tab, how does it work, feel, trigger pull, etc.).
  • reliability (I am not a SIG-hater, and my experiences have quite been positive, but it is still an new and unproven design...).
  • How does it feel in my hand with and without the longer magazine?
I am not a fan of proprietary rails, but if the slide width is too narrow to adhere to normal rail proportions, they may get a pass. For me, I don't foresee using the rail on this gun. Small is small. Nightstand lights are big with lights, lasers, and high capacity. The rail is a net neutral for me.

I am looking forward to investigating.

I have no clue why a 43, Shield, or any gun in that class would need a rail to begin with. I’m glad my 43 has no rail. It would just be useless mass on a gut gun.

I got rid of my G43 because of capacity, same goes for any single stack. The P365 is a single stack with double stack capacity. Not to mention it weighs the same as a G43, that’s huge. With night sights. The whole proprietary rail and magazines is really not a big deal because so are other single stacks. I was never a fan of the P320, but I think I want this 365.

All important considerations, but I'm not so sure 10 rounds is all that impressive if it's a double stack. A Glock 26 holds 10 round and has a shorter grip.

I'd be curious to know if it is indeed a double stack and if so, what the width is.

It’s supposedly the same width as a G43. It’s an inch wide, vs the G26 1.25”.

It looks promising.

It’s very slightly smaller than a s&w shield, but has a 10 round magazine.
The shield is:
6.1” long
4.6” High
.95” wide
7-round capacity with flush fit mag

The sig is:
5.8” long
4.3” High
1” wide
10-round capacity with flush fit mag

I’m definitely interested.
