    Sig 365xl vs G19 gen 5 MOS vs PDP compact

    Trying to settle on one of the three.

    Read that the Sig is almost perfect but has a crappy trigger

    Read that the PDP has a great trigger but more muzzle flip. Also add ons and holsters may be fewer.

    Not particularly a Glock fan but like the availability of upgrades and holsters.

    Any one been down this road? What did you choose and why?

    I have owned sig 365 and glock 19 and for me the glock 48 with shield 15 round mags and triton red dot is a keeper. Just my opinion jim

    I have never owned a Sig or a PDP but have owned quite a few Glocks, G17, and G19's. If it were my choice, I would go with the Glock.

    What are you looking for specifically?
    Are you equipping an optic? If so, what optic?

    All three have viable holster options, so I wouldn’t be very concerned with that.

    The P365XL is a very different pistol compared to the other two. All three would be fine for concealed carry, but the P365XL is on the smaller side. You will have more options available for Glock modifications, but there are a fair amount of modification options for the Sig. Not so much for the PDP.

    The PDP is large for what it is.
    The G19 is the gold standard for carry.
    The P365XL is a happy medium if you need something small, but capable.

    Go shoot all three first.

    I'm looking for an EDC with more capacity. I've been carrying a 642 and PPS for some time now and want an option with more capacity for the times when I feel the need. After those two, my current available options are fairly large: full size 1911/G34/G40....

    Looking for the optic capability because my eyes (and the rest of me) are getting old and probably need to go in that direction. I haven't actually tried a dot on a pistol yet, but have on several long arms. I have a Venom that I haven't taken out of the box yet, but may look at the Holosun's.

    I've shot a PPQ and a few of the larger Glocks, but never touched a SIG of any type. Someone mentioned the G48 so may need to expand to a 4th option and also find a SIG to shoot.

    I’ll probably get a lot of flak for it and I don’t particularly care, but I hate the G19. I own and carry Glocks, but the G19, in my opinion, is an outdated gun. It’s not small enough to warrant being carried over a G17, yet it no longer has enough capacity to warrant its size. You can get 13 rounds crammed into a P365XL or 16 rounds in a G43X/48 with S15 magazines. The G19 makes sense in a LE role, but not so much for concealed carry. It’s nice that it has magazine compatibility with larger capacity Glock magazines, but that’s not really a huge selling point for concealed carry. That being said, I have large hands and the G19 is just too small for me. It makes sense for smaller individuals, but again, it’s on the large side for those individuals.

    The P365XL is going to be the most concealable firearm with a good compromise in capacity. You lose 3 rounds, but you have a much smaller gun that is still quite capable. Again, for me personally, it’s on the small end, but I recognize its usefulness for many individuals.

    My only experience with the PDP is speaking with two individuals that I know who have been testing them. One is a regular guy like us who is having no trouble, the other is an instructor who has a few thousand down range and having some issues. The general consensus seems to be that it’s a good pistol, but it’s in the G19 size category.

    Since you have mentioned optics and that you’re green to pistol optics, the selection of viable pistol RDS is a lot slimmer than one would hope. I would not recommend the Vortex Venom or any other Vortex RDS for carry use. They are simply not rugged enough and are prone to premature failures simply due to being fired.

    The Trijicon RMR and SRO, Leupold Delta Point Pro, Holosun 407C, 507C, 407k, 507k, 508, and 509 are going to be the most common optics capable for duty or carry. There is one optic from Swamp Fox that is receiving good reviews, but it’s fairly new to the market. Most of the Sig optics have mixed reviews and at the price of the Romeo 3 Max, you’re in the RMR/SRO price ballpark. Holosun pistol RDS are probably the best value.

    If you go with the Sig P365XL, you will be limited to the optics you can use due to the smaller width of the slide. Thankfully, the Holosun 407k and 507k were made for such applications. I HIGHLY suggest you avoid the Sig Romeo Zero. It uses a polymer housing and is not very durable.

    If you go with the G19 MOS, do not use the Glock MOS plates. They are complete garbage. You will have to source an aftermarket MOS adapter plate such as the Forward Controls Design OPF-G plate.

    Lastly, if you go with the Walther PDP, the factory optics plates are well made. It has one of the better optics mounting systems out there. When you receive the pistol, you will contact Walther and let them know which optic you plan to install. They will then ship you the correct optics plate to use.

    I have a 365xl with a Shield RMSc red dot. So far I have not had any issues but I am only at 200 rounds or so. I got it instead of the Glocks because I like the grip angle better. Call ranges and go shoot rental guns if possible. Obviously go handle some and dry fire them. Trigger doesn’t seem bad to me vs my Glocks. A negative is the grip size can be small if you have big hands. I have to open my grip on the bottom of my hand to let the mag drop since it contacts the mag.
    The Shield, like several other red dots has a rear sight notch for a backup sight. Same comment is made about durability - polymer lens, it won’t pass a torture test of dropping, or racking the slide against a post, but I didn’t want a Chinese sight. I like the RMRcc but it doesn’t have a rear sight built in. And I also haven’t heard good things about the Romeo optics. I don’t want a plate system as it adds more screws to fail and raises the optic so high.

    I would choose a red dot from one Dave recommended. I have and like my Vortex Venom. I use it on a target/hunting pistol. The dot is crisp, and they make a 3 MOA for precise shots. However, I would not consider it an EDC or defensive carry red dot because of the battery life. I think you would want one of the "always on" types for your carry setup such has the ones mentioned above.

    Have a good look at the Glock 48. If you like a shorter slide, look at the 43X. Both guns use the same frame. I already had a Glock 43 so, I bought a Glock 48. I now have the option of putting the 43 slide on the 48 frame it I want a shorter slide.
    The 48 is basically the same size as the 19 but thinner. With Shield Arms magazines you go from 10 to 15 round capacity.
