Sig P365

Hi,
I'm bringing the blog back, but it's not going to be about politics anymore (ok not usually) but about firearms and outdoors type crap.
Now I'm a member of The Cabin Armory and Training Center and I spend quite a bit of time there, so they are going to get mentioned A LOT.

Today's post is about the Sig P365.
My first impressions,
It fits my hand PERFECTLY with the extended floorplate (1 of the 2 supplied magazines is so equipt)
Thr trigger is great for a factory trigger
2x10 round factory magazines (12 & 15 round after market are available) in a tiny package!



Ladies and Gentlemen, I didn't want to like this pistol, I was halfway in love with it.
All it needed was an acceptable range performance and I would have had its baby Sigs!

Yeah. Not so much in love with it now. The first 50 rounds were Remington white box Range ammo. 115 grain FMJ. I couldn't get a group out of this. 7 to 8 inch 'groups' at 7 to 10 yards is abysmal for a pistol. It's what I would expect from a shotgun with cheap 00 buck.  
Also it was hitting 6 inches below point of aim at 10 yards!
So I tried Keystone munitions 115 grain FMJ (supplied by the Cabin). 41 rounds that didn't do much better.
To check if it was my fault, I fired the last 9 Keystone munitions out of a Ruger LC9S Pro at 10 yards. Those are the unpatched holes in the target.

Sig, you have a possible game changer in the 'Concealed carry market, DO SOMETHING TO FIX THE FIRING PIN SMEAR!

I'll be shooting the pistol some (in the vain hope it is 'break-in teething pains) with different types of ammo (manufacturers, weights and type) and if that doesn't smooth it out in 500 rounds or so, maybe a different barrel?
My ratings?
Ergonomics: It turns the dial up to 11 for a sub compact
Accessories:  9 , I would have liked to have gotten spare base plates for the mags but getting night sights more than made up for that
Accuracy: It doesn't shot groups it shots patterns that a shotgun would be embarrassed of!

All in all, this IS a sample group of one, but I would NOT recommend it at this time.
