SIG Sauer dashed the relevancy of slim, single-stack polymer 9mm pistols on the market with the release of the P365 in 2018. The introduction of the stagger-stack magazine brought higher capacities into a concealable package, a form that many competitors have copied.

In the intervening years, SIG designed and produced several variations, from the P365 XL with a longer slide to the rounded-off P365 SAS, as well as a model with a slide with an integral compensator, the P365XL Spectre Comp.
The latest is the P365 X-Macro (or XMACRO), further narrowing the gap between the P320/M17 and the P365 by bringing a flush-fit 17+1 9mm model to the market. It also has an actual Picatinny rail up front for better accessory compatibility and interchangeable backstraps to accommodate different hand sizes.
Essentially the P365 X-Macro has the grip of a P322 with an integral compensator like the P365XL Spectre, all in a package that’s slightly slimmer, shorter, and lighter than a Glock 19–but with two more rounds on tap.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
NEWINGTON, N.H., (August 11, 2022) – SIG SAUER is pleased to introduce the P365-XMACRO bringing more capacity, more shootability, and more concealability to everyday carry; the P365-XMACRO packs an unprecedented 17+1 round standard capacity into the iconic 1” slim profile of the P365.
“When the P365 was introduced, it reimagined the possibilities of everyday carry, and the P365- XMACRO continues this tradition delivering more on everything that made the P365 the number one selling, and most award-winning gun in America,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “The innovative magazine design of the P365-XMACRO delivers on capacity while maintaining the slim design, making it more comfortable and more concealable than any other 17+1-round pistol on the market. The integrated compensator of the P365-XMACRO reduces muzzle flip making follow-up shots faster and easier to stay on target shot after shot for even more accuracy. It is very simple, like the name suggests, with the P365-XMACRO you get more of everything you want in an everyday carry pistol, and you no longer need to compromise your capacity for concealability or shootability.”
The P365-XMACRO is a striker-fired, 9mm, polymer frame pistol featuring the all-new Macro-Compact Grip Module with a standard 1913 accessory rail, an integrally compensated P365 XSERIES opticsready slide with XRAY3 day/night sights, and flat trigger. The pistol ships with interchangeable small, medium, and large backstraps and (2) two 17-round steel magazines. The P365-XMACRO is optimized for use with the SIG SAUER Electro-Optics FOXTROT1 rail mounted flashlight and ROMEOZero Elite Micro Red Dot sight.
