In August 2022, Sig Sauer introduced their P365-XMACRO line of compact, 9mm semi-automatic, striker-fired pistols. The XMACRO is based on their very popular P365 series.
There are three variations, the XMACRO; the XMACRO TACOPS and the XMACRO COMP.
In this article, I’ll review the Sig P365-XMACRO COMP that I was able to rent at my local shooting range.
Features of the Sig P365-XMACRO COMP
- New Macro-Compact Grip Module with 1913 Rail
- Integrated compensator for reduced muzzle flip
- Slim, 1” wide design for better concealment
- Optic Ready Slide
- Flat Trigger
- X-RAY3 Day/Night Sights
- Polymer Frame
- Nitron Finish, Stainless Steel Slide
- Interchangeable Backstrap (small, medium, large)
- 3.1” Carbon Steel Barrel

Dimensions of the Sig P365-XMACRO COMP
- Overall Length: 6.6″
- Width: 1.1″
- Height: 5.2″
- Barrel Length: 3.1″
- Weight: 21.5 oz
MSRP is $799.99 which is pretty much what I found most retailers selling it for online.
At the Range
Having put roughly 200 rounds of Magtech 9mm 115 Grain FMJ down range, I experienced no malfunctions with the P365-XMACRO COMP.
That said, it took me some time to adjust to the thinner frame and longer trigger reset (I normally shoot my favorite home defense and carry pistols, an M&P 2.0 full size and M&P Compact 3.6” with Apex Flat, Forward Set triggers).
While the trigger on the P365-XMACRO COMP is pretty good compared to many other OEM triggers I have tried, I find the reset to be a little too long. That is probably because I am accustomed to the very short reset of the Apex triggers in my M&Ps.
Otherwise, the P365-XMACRO COMP’s trigger is crisp, with a moderate amount of take up, clean break and “quick”, albeit long, reset.
I think the major appeal of the P365-XMACRO COMP is the fact that it is so slim and lightweight, yet offers a 17+1 round capacity and is optics ready.
At $800, the P365-XMACRO COMP is definitely not a budget-priced, concealed carry option. But, for those who appreciate Sig’s quality and product innovation embodied in this high capacity, compact, optics ready 9mm pistol, this may be an option worth considering.
