Here at Stainless Steel Guide Rods, we get a lot of questions about proper maintenance of guns, including the Smith & Wesson SD9 and the CZ PO9 as well as the Sig Sauer P365.
When you purchase a quality pistol for personal defense, like Sig Sauer’s P365, you want to have confidence that your chosen pistol will function reliably wherever and whenever it is called into action.
When you carry the gun to defend your life in an emergency, you should shoot it regularly at the range to assure it functions well. You also should practice shooting your pistol on a regular basis to establish and maintain skill and confidence in shooting it accurately.
The Sig Sauer P365 is a little semi-automatic pistol in a substantial caliber – 9mm. It is basic physics that the smaller and lighter the gun, the greater the recoil, and the more wear and tear on the hearts of the gun’s action. These would include the slide, the barrel, and the guide rod recoil spring assembly.
Most manufacturers recommend regular inspection and maintenance of the barrel, guide rod spring assembly and slide, as well as replacement of the guide rod spring assembly after a certain number of rounds.
