SIG Sauer introduces the P365 Nitron Micro-Compact pistol

Advertised by SIG Sauer as “the ultimate concealed carry pistol”: the new P365 is a high-capacity micro-compact striker-fired pistol. The P365 Nitron Micro-Compact is chambered in 9mm Luger and is rated for +P ammunition. Noteworthy is its patent-pending, narrow-neck, modified double-stack magazine that holds 10 rounds in both the flush-fit and extended versions, plus one in the chamber. This means a full capacity of 11 rounds.

The slide is stainless steel slide with front and rear serrations.
