New SIG AIR P365 BB Pistol Coming Soon
The SIG AIR P365 BB pistol made its first appearance at the 2019 SHOT Show. Now the company has formally launched the CO2-powered version of this top-selling concealed carry pistol. You may even have shot it already at the Pyramyd Air range at the 2019 NRA Meeting…
The company says that the SIG Air P365 BB pistol is an exceptional training tool for owners of the award winning centerfire SIG SAUER P365. (The P365 is an everyday, high capacity, micro-compact, concealed carry pistol designed for personal defense).
The CO2-powered P365 is a semi-automatic BB pistol features realistic blowback action, SIG tells us.
The P365 BB pistol is designed to fit in available P365 holster systems for easy practice of efficiently drawing from concealment. The 12-round drop magazine holds 4.5mm (.177 cal) steel BBs and also houses the 12 Gram CO2 cartridge.
As HAM has observed before, the small size of this pistol would have created some significant technical challenges in packing the valve, BB supply and CO2 cartridge into such a tiny space. Well done SIG AIR!
“The SIG P365 9mm pistol has won numerous awards for its concealability, performance, and exceptional magazine capacity and has quickly become the top choice for concealed carry,” said Joseph Huston, Vice President and General Manager of SIG AIR. “Our new P365 BB Pistol will give P365 owners and others who carry for personal protection a training tool of the highest quality when a trip to the range for live fire is not possible.”
“The P365 BB Pistol has similar balance and handling characteristics as the centerfire model and holds 12-rounds for realistic training. The drop magazine also allows fast and easy reloading,” Joe added.
The SIG AIR P365 BB pistol shoots with Muzzle Velocities of up to 295 FPS. However, results may vary depending on temperature, altitude and type of BB used – as with all CO2-powered airguns.
With an overall length of just 5.75 inches, the P365 has a 3.25-inch barrel and weighs-in at 0.8 Lbs.
MSRP for the SIG AIR P365 BB pistol is $99.99 and SIG says it will be in stores in the Summer of 2019.
