We've recently been able to order and expect to receive a variety of P365 related parts.
There are quite a few reasons to have spare parts available, perhaps most importantly in the event that the firearm becomes discontinued. This is not likely anytime soon with the P365 but we did recently have a customer needing spare parts for his Sig 556 variant (non -XI 556) and we could barely locate any parts.
Here are the parts that will be available very soon: Continue reading
Phil Strader, of Sig Sauer, put out some frequently asked questions and answers for the P365. These seem to be recurring inquiries.Hello all,P365 production is still increasing as we continue to build capacity to meet incredible demand. We have shipped tens of thousands of P365s with overwhelmingly positive responses not only from our commercial customers, but from law enforcement and professional end users around the world. In my 25 years of law enforcement and industry experience, I have rarely seen this level of excitement and positive reception around any single firearm. Although there have been a limited number of striker and trigger return spring issues with this new platform, our return rates for these two parts are still extremely low…approximately 0.25% combined, which we believe is below industry standards for any type of return.The P365 has received an unprecedented amount of praise and activity both in social and traditional media. However, in the age of the internet, readers are sometimes exposed to grossly inflated or even non-existent issues. To address some of these concerns, we have compiled the most prevalent questions we’re seeing online and in our customer service department.
This press release from Sig Sauer was issued today:

We just received this press release from Sig Sauer. We'll hopefully have more photos and details shortly.
Newington, N.H. (May 4, 2018) – The SIG SAUER Electro-Optics division today unveiled their all new Ballistic Data Xchange (BDX) rangefinders and riflescopes with integrated Applied Ballistics® and wireless Bluetooth® technology. This groundbreaking BDX technology enables interoperability and key ballistic holdover information to be exchanged wirelessly between SIG SAUER BDX Electro-Optics products. The foundation of the BDX system was designed for simplicity and ease of use. SIG SAUER BDX requires no new learning, and uses the same tools hunters and shooters have been using for years.
How does BDX work? The BDX rangefinder and riflescope system is simple, fast, and intuitive. Simply download the “SIG BDX” app available for Android or iOS smartphones, pair the KILO BDX rangefinder and SIERRA3BDX riflescope, set up a basic ballistic profile, and then you’re ready to shoot or hunt. Once you are in the field, range your target as you normally would, and the KILO BDX rangefinder will utilize onboard Applied Ballistics Ultralight™ to instantly send your dope to the scope via Bluetooth. Using your basic ballistic profile the ballistic solution is calculated for your target and will instantly illuminate on the BDX-R1 Digital Ballistic Reticle with windage and elevation holds in the SIERRA3BDX riflescope. A blue LED on the riflescope power selector indicates that the BDX system is paired, and when the reticle has received new ballistic holdover and windage data from the rangefinder. Continue reading
We just saw this in one of the Facebook Legion pages (https://www.facebook.com/groups/siglegion/?ref=group_header) and thought it was a good time to update our fans on a few new / upcoming Legion related releases. The above photo is being distributed via email to Sig Legion members.
Sig is releasing three new Legion pistols that we know of. We do not have release dates on any of them unfortunately.
The first, pictured above, is the P229 Legion 9mm SAO. We anticipate the part number on this to follow the P226 scheme, E29R-9-LEGION-SAO (15rd version) and 229R-9-LEGION-SAO (10rd version).
We inquired with our Sig rep on the ship dates but nothing is available yet.
In addition to the P229 Legion SAO, we received news last week, while attending a dealer seminar, that Sig is also releasing a P238 and P938 Legion. We don't have photos or any other details but they were referenced in the presentation and we were told that we could publish this scrap of intel since it was being disseminated already. We assume the part numbers will be 238-380-LEGION and 938-9-LEGION.
As more info becomes available we'll post updates here.
Update 5/3/18 12:54 PM:
We've confirmed part numbers reference above are correct. UPC code for the E29R-9-LEGION-SAO is 798681591596 and the 229R-9-LEGION-SAO is 798681591541.
