When SIG SAUER launched their P365 handgun SIG P365 air pistol last year, we knew we had a winner on our hands. It shot (so to speak) right to the top of the sales charts thanks to its unique combination of shootability and concealability, so it's no surprise that SIG unveiled a bb gun training model of the P365 barely a year later, at the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in 2019. Modeled after the award-winning SIG SAUER P365 everyday, high-capacity, micro-compact, concealed-carry pistol, this CO2-powered, semi-automatic BB pistol features realistic blowback action, and is an exceptional training tool for personal defense. Designed to fit in all available P365 holster systems for easy and safe CCW gun-handling practice, such as drawing from concealment, the P365 BB pistol will pay for itself in just a few sessions of practice by saving you ammo costs. The 12-round drop magazine holds 4.5mm (.177 cal) steel BBs and also houses the 12gr CO2 cartridge for fast reloading.

“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.”
