Shooting the SIG Sauer P365MS 9mm

 178 Views
In General

Shooting. The new SIG Sauer P365MS (Manual Safety) 9mm. Running the first over 200 rounds through the pistol. Testing function and bullet groups with various ammo. The trigger is very good or smooth and consistent for a striker fired pistol with a good reset and its surprisingly soft shooting with soft felt recoil for a tiny micro compact that is still snappy. Its snappiness is why my rested groups were not as good due to the pistol shifting my soft pistol rest. Still getting into the feel of the pistol trigger and I am sure my groups will improve with it the more rounds I put through it. By the way, I have since filed and sanded down the Pearce grip extension so that it now is identical in shape and size to the SIG original equipment manufacture pinky extension. So pocketing the pistol from now on with that aftermarket extension should be just as easy as with the SIG OEM pinky extensions.

I apologize for the poor quality of the target footage as I should not have switched cameras. The camera I was using for target footage has poor audio but the picture is usually fairly decent but not with its zoom obviously.

Please shoot safely and remember the four rules of gun safety.

1. Treat all firearms as if they are loaded.
2. Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.
3. Finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot.
4. Know your target and beyond.

For those interested in frangible ammo for inside the home defense, here is an article that looks at its pros and cons. I use the Federal Syntech Defense because it meets FBI protocol with consistent penetration results. This segmented round has a lead core and breaks into three fragments on impact. It provides enough penetration on the target yet does give some measure of being less likely to over penetrate many barriers. Other franglbles of copper may not meet FBI protocol to provide enough penetration on the target to stop the threat. Telos frangible is one of these with a lighter 92gr. round that breaks into seven fragments on impact. There is a fine line to walk as we want enough penetration to stop the threat yet we want as less penetration through barriers as possible. There will be over penetration on barriers inside a house no matter what round is used but some will be less than others. We just try to use a round that is the best we can do with less penetration through barriers while still being able to stop the threat.

BTW, my personal defense ammo (outside the house) is as you see in the video. Federal Train and Protect HP alternating with American Eagle FMJ Ball inside the mag. This has the ability to stop a threat not only in the open but also behind barriers without changing mags from one type of ammo to another. It can go through a target into anything behind the target as well as go through many barriers. though.

Very nice pistol brother. Only Sig I ever wanted. The P365 is on my list. Definitely needed to loose the pinky extension for pocket carry and I would get a holster designed for pocket carry, stops them from turning in the pocket.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look. Well the factory pinky extensions will still let you put it in your pocket but that aftermarket Pearce is longer so I just filed and sanded it down so now its the same as the factory.

Believe me you want that pinky extension or you won't get your whole hand on the grip.
