Customer Reviews for Sig Sauer P365 CO2 Blowback Steel BB gun

Brand: Sig Sauer

Type: BB Pistol
Manufacturer: Sig Sauer
Model: P365
Materials: Metal and polymer
Weight: 363 g (0.8 lb)
Barrel: 81.28 mm (3.2 in), smoothbore
Power Source: 12 g CO2 x 1
Action: Semi-automatic, blowback, single action only
Ammo Type: 4.5mm steel BBs
Ammo Capacity: 12 rounds
FPS: 295

Buy the magazine: SIG1061

Trigger Pull: Single action only trigger so you will need to rack the slide to cock the trigger and internal striker, after which the blowback operation will do this for you. When the pistol is unloaded, the trigger pull length is short and the trigger weight is fairly light. When you load the full size drop out magazine, the trigger pull weight increases significantly. This is because the inner barrel comes back and into the magazine when the trigger is pulled, allowing for a better seal between the barrel and magazine which increases power and CO2 efficiency. The drawback to this is more friction on the trigger when you pull it with a loaded magazine.

Accuracy: I shot 5 rounds through my chronograph and averaged 287 FPS with the fastest being 297 FPS and the lowest being 276 FPS. This was pretty close to Sig Sauer's 295 maximum FPS claim and right in line for a super short-barreled blowback BB pistol. In terms of accuracy, I was able to get a 2.5 inch 10 shot grouping with all but one shot hitting within 2 inches of each other. I did find the P365 shot a little low at 30 feet, but not a crazy amount. In terms of windage it was well centered, maybe just a hair to the right.

Build Quality: The Sig Sauer P365 BB Pistol has a metal and polymer build. The slide is metal along with part of the full size magazine, and several inner parts are also metal. The frame along with sections of the magazine are plastic. It’s hard to tell if the trigger, safeties, slide catch, and take down levers are metal but I believe they are with the mag release being plastic. The Sig Sauer P365 is not the heaviest airgun coming in at about .8lb but for its size it feels good. Fit and finish is good.

Realism: The Sig Sauer P365 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is a replica of the real steel Sig Sauer P365, which is a 9mm striker-fired everyday carry compact pistol. It looks and feels the part, with most external mechanical working parts mimicking the real steel version. I wasn't able to easily field strip the pistol since the takedown lever seems to be only for show. One main difference between the airgun and real steel version is the polymer in the frame. I imagine this is because 9mm rounds pack some punch and a small polymer frame may not have been up to the job, which is not something to be concerned with in a CO2 version of the same pistol.

Pros:

  • One of the smallest airguns on the market with a full size drop out mag
  • Good overall replica of real steel P365 in terms of look and operation
  • Full Sig Sauer markings and licensing
  • Working ambidextrous safeties and slide catch release
  • Snappy blowback feel for realistic shooting experience
  • White and green dot front and rear sights
  • Recessed barrel opening and open ejection port for added realism
  • Warning instructions are super discreet!

Cons:

  • SAO trigger can get harder to pull when loaded up with BBs
  • Polymer frame unlike metal frame on real steel gun
  • Not easily field-strippable

Comments: The Sig Sauer P365 BB Pistol was a real show stopper at this years SHOT Show. I was amazed that Sig Sauer was able to actually figure out a way to fit a full size drop out magazine that holds both the CO2 and BBs in such a compact airgun. The Sig Sauer P365 is even smaller than the Walther PPK in many ways, so great work by Sig in figuring out how to engineer their new P365 BB Pistol. I also think the the BB pistol is a great replica of the real steel version in looks, feel, and function which is what we are all looking for when considering buying a new CO2 replica airgun. Overall, the gun is a nice shooter, it has a very fast and snappy blowback action and makes a kind of popping sound that’s louder than I expected. The SAO trigger when using good quality smooth 4.5mm steel BBs was decent, allowing me to concentrate on my shooting rather than struggle with the trigger. All in all, I really love this little air pistol. Sig Sauer did a great job bringing it to market and getting as much into the CO2 blowback BB pistol as they could considering its super compact size.

some good, some bad, good enough.

Got it, did one 12g CO2 through it so far Pros: mag holds 13 BBs and 12g CO2, good for 7-8 mags when you empty a mag it stops shooting so you don't waste CO2, also locks the slide halfback When you load the refilled mag you just hit the (slide release?) switch and the slide goes forward, then you can start shooting trigger pull is super easy, I got it to practice shooting fast on multiple targets and for that I can pull the trigger faster than I can re-aim so that's great slide recoil is snappy, if slide is stopped it doesn't cycle (realistic), loud but not enough to hurt hearing Cons: handle is small, only covers half my palm, don't notice during shooting though mag spring to push up BBs only detaches automatically half the time when you load the mag, so you should unhook it manually loading the BBs is weird, they go in, then down, often get stuck which is annoying sights were way off, like an inch low at 3m, I'm no marksman but I'm not that bad, and it was always low... maybe just a defect though needs an hex key (provided) to swap CO2 Overall, good enough for my needs but others may have issues. It has cool features (slide lock and switcher), but the basic bits (loading, sighting) got ignored as a tradeoff. good price.

Size doesn't matter

One of my favorite guns ! Consistent shots if you take a little time between shots . Surprisingly accurate for such a small gun . And the blowback gives a good kick . Love this gun and going to purchase another for some two handed shooting . It's must have for a collector . And the price is stupid for the quality of gun you get . Awesome job Sig . Look forward to what they come up with in the future . As long as we Canadians don't allow Bill C21 to pass .

Mini Wonder

A marvel of engineering just like the real one, designed around the mag. Well built and great feel. I have to resist milking the last shots out of the co2 because it will leave bbs in the barrel. I just stop when I hear the gas deplete and all is well. Very tight tolerances on this little beauty. Thanks Replica airguns

Very compact, but packs a good punch

The first thing that surprises you is the size. The second thing is the punch of the blowback action and the noise! This is not a discreet airgun when shooting it. I haven't got any jams so far, and it IS field stripable. You just have to slightly push on the tip of the guide rod and you can remove the slide in the usual manner. I would suggest being careful when screwing the cap for the CO2 cartridge, as it is plastic and can be easily inserted cross thread. I would have preferred a metal magazine, but it's okay. Of course, the accuracy isn't the best with such a short barrel, but that's to be expected. The trigger is rather sensitive with a very short travel, so better be careful not to shoot it accidentally, just put the safety on when not shooting. Overall a very enjoyable little airgun, with lots of fun in store. Moreover, it IS the same exact size and shape as the real deal, so ideal for training. And, as usual, excellent service from RAG. Thanks!

Small but mighty

The size of this gun is sure to fool you. It packs a surprising punch for such a small weapon. Of course with a very short barrel as it has, the accuracy suffers a little bit. But again this gun was designed to be a perfect little conceal carry self-defence weapon. You don’t need to be that accurate. Sig has produced an air gun every bit as good as everything else they have on the market. And at the price, it is a must-own for any collector or air pistol enthusiast. Again RAG was outstanding to deal with!

Loved it!

By far one of the coolest and unique guns that I've ever seen or owned, It shot through juice jugs easy enough despite it's low velocity rating and my sights happened to be on..so all good.

Big things in little Package

If your a tin can shooter, and shoot in small areas like a one car garage, be prepared for a LOUD shot. This thing is loud for such a little thing. I bought this one for my wife to get her involved in air shooting and she loves the compact comfy size. Its a PERFECT replica of the Sig P265, Made by Sig, so you cant go wrong . Great for US customer who own a real one, to practice holder draws etc. As for shooting, it a fun little gun. I was surprised how on target it was at about 25-30 feet. Not bad for a little gun, The Full Blow back is a nice realistic touch but does eat up C02; The only CON: Was that a few times it seemed to double feed the BB's but that could have been due to the C0 capsule being at the end of its air supply.
