Just bought a new XL and...
I got home and was going to break it down and clean/lube it. I noticed the slide serrations have the CNC marks in them. Also there is a slight Belmish on the slide by the front sight post. I normally wouldn’t care about this but dang. Also just out of curiosity does the slide release on the XL normally feel “hollow” or like some spring is being released when depressed? My regular 365 doesn’t have any of these things going on. I’ll attach pic for reference. Do you guys think I should contact sig customer service?

I do see the swirls and I believe the blemish is from installing the sight.
Doesn't hurt to contact Sig. The swirls are something that should have been caught on QC. Not sure I understand the slide release issue

I wouldn’t like the fact that the milling didn’t clean up on the slide serrations either. It looks as though a heavy cut either made the small diameter endmill flex and have the leading edge mill deeper, or a second cut didn’t clean up. I would contact Sig CS. But, I’m fussy.

As for your other issue, when I first got my XL it was so tight that working the slide release or the take down lever took far more work then I expected. I mentioned this to my contact at SIG CS, who is also a P365 armorer, and that I didn’t have this experience with my P365 regular, and he said that they are fit together tight and it would ease up after I shot it. Which it did. Not sure if this is the same type of issue you’re describing, but just ask the customer service rep while you're on with him or her.
I’m sorry you had a bad experience, but I expect SIG customer service will be able to help. And once they get your XL sorted out I hope you enjoy it as much as I do mine. Please let us know how it works out for you.

I had to click on the picture then click on it again to get it to blow up and I could see the swirls that you mention.
Get a better detailed picture that shows the Swirls..
Then Instead of calling Sig I would send a email with pictures to Sig.
Better for Sig to see what the Slide looks like.
A picture is worth a 1,000 words...
I checked my 2018 P365 and the Serration spaces are perfectly Smooth / Swirl Free.
Sig should take care of it for you and swap out your slide.
If your lucky they will just send you a new Slide and have you return yours..without sending in your P365.
Keep us posted!
