P365 Recoil Spring Problem

Saw another post with the same problem I have. Problem is the recoil spring. Just purchased my 365 December 10, 2018. Born on date for the pistol is November 26, 2018. Put 250 rounds through it without any issues. Upon cleaning and inspection I noticed my recoil spring had popped out of place. I inspected after the first initial 100 rounds spring was fine. This happened after I went back and fired another 150 rounds. I was able to bend back in place but will be calling Sig for a new recoil spring and rod. Still very pleased with how the Pistol fires. Not giving up on it yet.

They sent me a free replacement but beware they'll use "smart post" and it's painfully slow (something like 9 business days). If I had to do it again I'd ask if I could pay for expedited shipping.

I had the same issue with a replacement/extra RCA. It's like they sent it via The Pony Express.

I can only surmise that Sig is obviously not too concerned in it's functionality.

Sig did tell you that it was fine to use and shoot but they would send you a replacement...correct.
Those that see their recoil spring like that also say that the P365 is still functioning perfectly.
So use it and trust what Sig told you.
I do not think that the spring is going to unravel around itself.

Looking at my P365 it looks as though there is enough room around the Recoil spring to accommodate for the slipped off leg of the spring.
I would however push the end in when installing the recoil spring into your 365.

Bottom line either Sig is correct and you all are making a mountain out of a Molehill or not..

I have joined the order of the unsrpung spring and look forward to agonizing over the time it takes to get a replacement.

It shot fine today and I only noticed it during cleaning. Only about 50 so rounds through it today so I find it hard to imagine all this happened in one day.

It probably started a while back and went unnoticed by the novice operator.

My 365XL spring unraveled on the end too. I notified Sig about it, and as mentioned above. The shipping takes forever.

My 365 spring did the same thing. However, my gun would only reassemble with the spring in a certain way. The fat part was getting in the way when it was oriented up, it had to be a certain orientation for the slide to fully retract and be able to lock back. I never tried to shoot it once I noticed it although it could have been that way for awhile.

My P365 instruction manual says to replace the recoil spring every 2500 rounds. I assume that dry fire counts slide racking counts towards that 2500 too right?

Youd probably best call Sig CS on that one, but racking a slide manually puts nowhere near the force that a cartridge does. I would say 2,500 for actual live rounds through the gun, but Im no gunsmith.

When I dry fire, I only pull the slide back enough to reset the trigger so I don't count those.
