SIG P365 vs GLOCK 43


To save you the trouble, the Sig P365 vs Glock 43 concludes with the Sig P365 as the winner. Both these pistols are dated at this point. The Sig P365 is a modular handgun with the FCU, or fire control unit, as the serialized “firearm”. The Sig P365 is Sig Sauer’s response to the inception of the Glock 43. Each of these firearms has many successors at this point. The today’s comparison would be a P365 XL Spectre Comp versus a chunk ported Glock 48 MOS, but for the sanctity of this article, we will compare the foundation predecessor pistols.

Slide Comparisons of the Sig P365 vs Glock 43

The slide of the Sig P365 is slightly shorter than the Glock 43. This is because the Sig P365 has a 3.1″ barrel length, compared to the 3.41″ barrel length of the Glock 43. Does this matter for muzzle velocity of same type of ammo? Yes, but it’s almost negligible.

Sig P365 slides come equipped with front cocking serrations and steel bodied X-Ray sights. The Glock 43 does not have cocking serrations and does come with the classic polymer Glock-styled, goal post, sights. So aesthetically and functionally, the Sig P365 is has a cleaner and more versatile slide assembly.

The trigger on the Sig P365 is certainly superior to the trigger on the Glock 43. The Glock 43 trigger is clunky and a bit gritty. The Sig P365 trigger is smoother, but the release has a very bow string, “twang” to it. Almost like the internal spring is being flicked in tension. It’s a strange feeling trigger, but under shots taken, it is not noticeable.

Sig P365 vs Glock 43 Accessory Rail (or Lack there of)

The Sig P365 does come with an accessory rail. It is a propriety Sig P365 specific accessory rail. It works with the Ligma (balls) light and laser systems by Sig. These accessories have been pretty bust since the inception of the Sig P365. Streamlight did eventually release a Streamlight TLR-7 SUB SIG Find Yours Here! for P365 series pistols. The Streamlight TLR-6 fits the Glock 43, but is not a waterproof light system and failure is immanent in salinated and damp environments. Due to the Sig P365 having an accessory rail, the Sig P365 comes out on top again!

Sig P365 vs Glock 43 Grip

The Sig P365 has a very ergonomic and comfortable grip. The grip houses a 10 round capacity hybrid double-stack magazine. The Sig P365 grip is a bit more vertical than the more aggressive angled Glock 43 grip housing a measly, 7-round capacity magazine. The grip texturing on the Sig P365 is almost a true stippled style grip: a polymer sandpaper per say. The grip of the Glock 43 is pretty negligible with it’s tiny little squares of uselessness. The height-over-bore of the Glock 43 paired with grip angle, does make it a more controllable gun to shoot. It has the slightly longer slide and barrel, putting more mass forward on the gun. We conclude that the Glock 43 has the preferred grip angle and height-over-bore.

In Conclusion of the Sig P365 vs Glock 43

We prefer the Sig P365 over the Glock 43. Aseptically pleasing, more ergonomic and economic features, such as, better trigger, forward cockling serrations, increased capacity, steel X-Ray night sights, and grip texturing. The Sig P365 is the front runner in this comparison.
