This is kind of a long shot, but does anyone here have experience with the Sig Sauer 365 XL? Does it have any drawbacks I should know about?
A woman in my shooting class had this model (is that the right terminology?), and for one of our drills, I actually got to load her gun. I ended up loving the feel of it, but wanted to see if anyone had experience with it.
I have a Walther PPS, which keeps jamming and failing to lock back after the last round, so I’m wanting to replace it.
Ha!! I don’t think the instructors who’ve been working with me would allow such a thing, and it’s happened to my husband too. Feel free to check my form. This is from a couple months ago and I’ve advanced a little since then but I’m pretty sure there’s no limp wrist here. haha
Yes! The grip you’re talking about here is exactly what helped. The instructor who worked with me a couple weeks ago even drew lines on my hands to get me used to that. And the crazy thing is, it made my accuracy instantly better.
The video was taken before I started using that better grip.
Yes, bad magazines cause a lot of problems, but, it you have a “high grip” on your pistol, your primary shooting hand being “too high” will cause the slide lock to not engage. Just make sure your primary shooting hand thumb is off the slide lock.
I carry a standard 365 from time to time, my son-in-law is a police officer and he carries the 365 XL exclusively when off duty.
Regarding your Walther, the magazine is most likely your problem. If the pistol doesn’t have a magazine safety (not familiar with Walther) you can test my theory by loading the pistol, ejecting the magazine and firing. If the problem is in your pistol or your grip, you should continue to have ejection problems. It of course will not lock back.
Another thumbs-up for the P365 XL. It’s my current EDC. I have pretty big hands and it fits me just fine, and is also pretty easy to conceal inside the waist.
Mine came with a red dot sight that I wanted to try for awhile. I can’t seem to get used to it, so I’m going to go back to just iron sights. Love the weapon, though. I’ve never had a any jamming or locking issues.
