For those who prefer a manual external safety on their pistols– or live in states that mandate one– Sig Sauer has fitted such a switch to the P365.
Appropriately dubbed the P365-MS (guess what the “MS” stands for) the new 9mm micro compact is Massachusetts-compliant, which is big news for gun owners in the Bay State who are beholden to the Commonwealth’s approved firearms roster. Other than the switch, mounted on the left rear frame of the pistol, the handgun is the same as the standard P365.
The model, with its 3.1-inch barrel and 5.8-inch overall length, has proven popular on the concealed carry market. This is in no small part due to its 10+1 round capacity with a flush-fit magazine. In comparison, the Sig is smaller than the Springfield XD-S and S&W Shield and about the same size as the Glock 43, although with a larger magazine capacity than those single stack 9mm subcompacts.
MSRP on the P365-MS is $599.
