Cover: SIG SAUER P320 XFIVE Legion & P365 XL

A double-feature cover story, Massad Ayoob examines SIG SAUER’s P320 XFIVE Legion and P365 XL. One a full-size heavyweight competitor with new tungsten-infused grip module, the other a hard-hitting lightweight designed for carry, Mas puts the extreme opposite handguns through the ringer.

“What particularly impressed me was the P365 XL performed so reliably when it came out of the box bone dry. Big thumbs up for that.”
