    Plenty of high round count no break believable reports so I finally bought my first SF gun in a decade, the XL. A day later I see the X Macro. I am glad I got the XL. I think that once the grip gets longer than the XL it could become much harder to conceal. Sure itís thin but if itís a footprint of a G 17 then itís the footprint of a G 17. Thin doesnít make the butt not print.

    Still, it is thin and in the right holster and right situation it could work and it might be a nice shooting gun. Right now Iím actually thinking of magna porting my XL.

    The XL has violent recoil and muzzle flip but comes back on target very quickly and is actually pretty comfortable to shoot.

    You could buy the factory ported Macro and put any sized 365 grip you want on it.

    Either we have complete opposite ideas of what a good recoil impulse is, or you have fired a poor selection of 9mm handguns.

    It's recoil is good for its size, but no where near in the same league as a full size steal or alloy framed gun.

    Smaller hands and a larger grip can be very bad for recoil control. My wife can't comfortably shoot a Gen3 G17 because she has to cheat her hand around the grip to reach the trigger.

    There are a lot of younger shooters that may have never shot a metal framed pistol. I can't remember the last time I did.

    I have the XL and feel 15+1 is plenty capacity or 12+1 for the flush mag. Still 12+1 is sufficient for a very small handgun. Shooting the Dickens tomorrow with mine. Wish the trigger was better but not horrible.

    Just ordered my first 365, looking forward to it. Got the standard as I couldnít find an X version in stock.

    Iíll probably be getting a few Macro mags for reloads once they become more available.

    You could buy the XL grip and make your own P365X (without the dot ready slide). Thatís what I did.
    Wilson Combat makes a similar XL grip for it too.

    Between family and friends have at least six or seven 365s in service.

    All run great, shoot great.

    And surprisingly for its size, are enjoyable to shoot. Enough that both my wife and a 90 lb daughter in law have no issues shooting it for fun.

    It's made me think about getting an XL just a plink with.

    I know SIG has an uneven track record since West German days, but I really think the 365 is a pretty good design in a sweet spot size/capability.

    The above is relative to other very small 9 mm.

    Of course much bigger g19/ppq/p99as are easier to shoot. But our experience, the 365 is not near as much of a disadvantage as other pistols in its class.

    This may indeed be the absolute best option but I saw the macro 24 hours too late to have a choice. I really think this craze is an appendix carry construction. I wear OWB and hiding the LONG grip on the Macro would be tough. So not much advantage. Reviewers talk like it has the same concealability but 5 more rounds and that is misleading.

    I donít mind paying less than $200 to magnaport if that is a viable thing to gain more controllability; but I think Iíll train more with my XL which seems pretty good.
