Sig Sauer P365 air pistol.

It was a few months ago Sig sent me the P365 air pistol for review. It made for an excellent companion to the P365 9mm I reviewed and comparison to the other Sig airguns I have reviewed. The MCX ASP and P226 ASP air gun review  and the 1911 air pistol

 

Notice the functional ambidextrous manual safety. This air pistol is equipped with a magazine disconnect.

The top being the P365 air pistol and the bottom being the P365 9mm Externally the P365 and P365 airgun is the same, except the air gun, has a safety. That works out quite well if you have a P365 holster the airgun fits without issue. The same Sig accessory rail is included so you can transfer any of your Sig accessories.

The bright green front sight and white two dot rear sight worked well in getting correct sight alignment and sight picture.

Conclusions 

The P365 air pistol would serve very well as a trainer, especially if you have a P365 in your carry rotation, and with additional magazines available from Sig for just under fifteen dollars, you can practice your draw and magazine changes without having to go to the pistol range. This bb gun would also serve very well as a bridge from airsoft to a real firearm for someone looking to get into handguns but needs to get the fundamentals down first, or a young person that needs to be taught firearm safety and correct techniques. Make no mistake; this is not a toy, and if misused can cause injury. All gun safety rules apply to this as well as firearms. With reduced recoil and hardly any report, it does an excellent job setting the stage for live fire training.
There is also a fun factor of being able to set up a range in your yard and having some fun while getting in some practice.

There is enough report to trigger a timer so you can use your shot timer in your air gun training regimen if you so choose.  We were averaging five to six magazines between CO2 canisters; at that point, the air gun would still function for a bit longer, but the slide did not reciprocate, and there was quite a bit of velocity loss. Swapping in a new CO2 canister in the magazine with the enclosed Allen wrench, and you are back in business.
