SIG has an optimized variant of the 17+1 round 9mm P365 XMacro headed to the market, minus the integrated compensator but with a few extra goodies. 

The new P365 Macro TACOPS will have the slightly taller grip module of the XMacro that comes standard with a frame-mounted M1913 accessory rail for lights and lasers. The upper half is that of a standard P365 XL. What is totally new on the micro 9 is an integrated magwell for faster reloads, an extended slide catch lever, and, as it is a TACOPS package, four flush-fit 17-round magazines. 

We ran into the P365 Macro TACOPS at SIG's media event in Nevada last week on the eve of SHOT Show and got a sneak peek at the new pistol.

The P365 Macro TACOPS can be looked at as a P365 XMacro in which someone swapped out a regular XL top half and added a magwell and extended slide lever. The pistol shown wears a SIG RomeoZero Elite 1x24 micro red dot-- which fits the Shield RMSc/Holosun K footprint of the series-- with its optional metal shield installed. (Photo: Chris Eger/

The official release date is likely sometime in February while the price, always an elusive figure with SIG products, will probably be around $800. This compares well to the P365 XMacro, especially when you keep in mind that the TACOPS model comes with four mags.
