    I’m liking the Sig 365 XL. Unfortunately, I require a trigger safety on my autos and the Sig does not have one. I have scoured the web for an after market kit, but I have not had any luck. From an engineering perspective, perhaps it is not even possible, but does anyone know if a trigger safety can be installed on a Sig and by who? I am no gunsmith. PS, I don’t need any comments about the only safety is between your ears

    I certainly haven't seen one and I doubt any will be forthcoming. Who knows though.

    Please don't take this as a wisecrack, but what exactly do you think the "trigger safety" does?
    Hint; it does not prevent anyone/anything from pressing the trigger.
    Anything capable of pressing the trigger will also activate the "trigger safety".

    What it does is act as a "drop safety", Ruger actually called it a "drop safety" on thier SR series.
    Sig obviously used another type of "drop safety" on the P365XL.
    I assume it's just as safe as a Glock. All striker guns with no "thumb safety" require a bit more care than guns that have then.

    This is 100% correct, but only about 2% of gun guys know it. The trigger "safety" has less inertia than the trigger, and will not actuate if the gun is dropped on its backside like the trigger might.

    Anyone know how the SIG 365 drop safety works?

    A blade type trigger/drop safety does offer some protection from indirect glancing pulls/contact of the trigger.

    Given the amount of sticks, cords, clothing, and old rolled hoster edges that have caused AD grief for some Glock people over the years, I'd suppose the number of AD's from that sort of stuff would be 10 times as high if Glocks didn't have the trigger safety. Or maybe only twice as high. Dunno.

    If you want a trigger safety, don’t buy the Sig. It’s that simple.

    OP, would you consider a SAF-T-BLOK like they make for Glocks? Not sure if anyone makes one yet for the P365/XL.

    If no one's making one yet, may be a business opportunity!

    Might be a good market for Apex. They do real well selling M&P triggers that trades the “hinge” for a Glock style trigger safety.

    I guess if the OP wants a gluck style trigger dingus then buy a gluck or m&p or learn to live with a different design . The p365 trigger is light enough with enough spring pressure its not going to force it to fire if dropped and it was not designed for the need of a trigger dingus and theres no reason to add one to a design that does not need something extra when it has a striker block.

    Besides plenty of gluck owners have managed unintended discharges as it is just reholstering to think that an added dingus matters ..

    I was just on Sig's sight looking if they offered a safety on the P365 XL, and didn't see it. As I see it, the P320 and P365 is a single action pistol that most are carrying cocked and unlocked. At least the GLOCK is only partially cocked. I'd prefer a safety model, should I consider one. NOTE: This is in reference to MY safety level, and not to disparage anyone else's choices / decisions.

    The 365XL will be coming with a ambi thumb safety, they just aren’t shipping them yet. I like to have the option of a thumb safety, but if you don’t, then don’t buy a pistol with one. Simply. It is just personal preference for or against one,and nobody needs to shove their religion/opinion on thumb safeties down the throat of someone else.

    Totally irrelevant as long as it's drop safe and has a 5+ lb trigger.

    Not many pistols have a trigger safety dingus.

    Trade that Sig 365XL in for a G43x now available with a black slide.

    Physical characteristics are not irrelevant. They may be irrelevant to you. I already stated it’s a specific concern of mine, and YMMV.
