Picked up my new P365 from the FFL at the range today and ran around 125 rounds through it. Totally disappointed. Worst piece I’ve ever had in my hand and very surprising given Sig Sauer’s reputation. After putting preset pressure on the trigger it would stop 2-3 times as I pulled steadily. Very scratchy, more than any other weapon I’ve ever fired. Let the highly experienced RSO try it and he agreed. It’s going back for a new trigger before I fire it again. Hard to get a good grip but I guess that’s what you get with a micro compact. Later I wanted to check if the trigger was oiled and couldn’t get the takedown lever to move, finally had to wedge a screwdriver into the frame to get it to move. Oiled the trigger again but no improvement. The mag release is too far forward to easily release and is very stiff. And you have to jam the magazine in to get it to catch. The only positive thing I could say is that the iron sights were dead on. I bought an IWB holster for it this week and when it comes back from warranty repair I’ll just use it as a CCW. Or sell it. Not fun on the range. As a shooting experience my TP9SFx Canick is so much better in every way. Sooo....as a IWB CCW I think the Elite SC might be a better choice and, if it’s anything like my SFx, a whole lot more fun on the range, too. So, I’m comin’ home, baby!
