Do you want to carry an award-winning subcompact 9mm with the highest magazine capacity in its class finished in coyote tan and support the National Rifle Association at the same time? Coincidentally, Lipsey’s wanted you to have that opportunity, too.
The new NRA P365 will have a special NRA serial number and includes a SIG SAUER & NRA branded P365 challenge coin. Additionally, the gun will be coyote tan and include three magazines — two 10-round mags and the popular 12-round extended mag, also in coyote tan. It’s all bundled in a polymer case.
The gun will be available exclusively through Lipsey’s, which is a wholesale distributor. If you want to get your hands on this gun, you’ll need to find an FFL who works with Lipsey’s. Follow this link to check with your local GunsAmerica dealer. It shouldn’t be hard to get your hands on this coyote tan beauty.
Lipsey’s and SIG will donate a portion of the sale of each gun “to the NRA to support the defense of the second amendment, and all of the work NRA does to educate and train for the safe and lawful use of firearms,” SIG reported in the news release.
The P365 was named handgun of the year for 2019 by the NRA’s Shooting Illustrated magazine. It’s not only one of the slimmest and lightest of the firearms in its class, but it also holds 10 rounds without increasing the width of the grip.
In a recent GunsAmerica hands-on comparison of the SIG P365, the Glock 43 and the Smith & Wesson Shield, the P365 was a standout winner. It has improved ergonomics and that extra capacity makes all the difference. Its XRAY3 day/night sights are also superb.
“Sig Sauer has a long history of supporting the NRA through programs and products,” said Tom Taylor Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc.
“We expect this unique collaboration with one of our leading business partners on one of the best-selling guns in the market will drive substantial awareness and support for the NRA, and be very popular amongst consumers,” he continued.
The NRA P365 will be revealed later this week at the NRA annual meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana, and will be available through your Lipsey’s dealer in May 2019. MSRP is $649, compared to the Nitron finished P365 with two 10-round mags for $599 (street price will probably be lower).
