While many shooters are loyal to Glock pistols for  EDC (everyday carry), SIG Sauer is highly popular among law enforcement. We compared the Glock 26 vs SIG P365 to see if the Glock could outperform the popular SIG.

You’ll find several differences between the Sig P365 and Glock 26. While the Sig P365 holds a single-stack magazine, the Glock 26 is double-stack, which means the grip is thicker. The grip angle on the Glock is steep-angled, so you may need to make some adjustments. On the other hand, Sig offers a more shallow and conventional angle. With the Sig’s ergonomic design, the Sig will feel more natural on your hand.

  • G26 is double-stack, while P365 is single-stack
  • Glock 26 has steep-angled grip, while Sig Sauer P365 has a traditional angle
  • Glock has a shorter trigger reset than Sig P365
  • Sig Sauer P365 needs lesser pressure on the wall
  • Sig can fit 2 to 3 fingers on the grip, while Glock has a fairly short grip

During our dry firing test I found the Glock has a shorter trigger reset, which is helpful in accurate follow-up shots. In this aspect, the Glock is superior.

The wall on the Glock (the point where the trigger action first engages the sear) requires more pressure than the Sig P365, although the Sig’s slide-lock lever can be inconvenient on your support hand when you take a thumb-forward position.

Detailed Comparison


During our extensive review, there were a couple of points about the pricing that caught our attention. Prices for both start around $500, but depending on the exact model and features, P365 can get much more expensive than the G26. Sig P365 spare magazines are pricier than Glock 26 magazines and more aftermarket options are available for the G26.

Design & Ergonomics

When it comes to grip angle, the Sig Sauer P365 offers a traditionally shallow design. On the other hand, the Glock 26 has a steep angle.

When you present the pistol, you also have to adjust when angling the sights. Ergonomically speaking, the Sig’s conventional design will feel more natural to your hand than the Glock’s.

Most customer reviews have pointed out issues with the Sig Sauer P365’s trigger pull during dry firing, but it doesn’t actually render much during our live shooting test.

However, when it comes to trigger reset, the Glock 26 has a shorter reset, therefore making it superior to the Sig. We’ve got some of the best Glock trigger connectors here. The P365 has had a history of trigger issues, which you can read more about here.

Sights - Glock 26 or P365?

The Sig P365 has a shorter sight radius than the G26, but it’s night sights are accurate and easy to pick up, even in low light. It’s a big step up from the factory plastic sights of the Glock 26. 

Winner: Sig P365

Shooting Performance

During our live shooting test, we were impressed with the performance of the Sig as it ran flawlessly. The shooting point was good, and there were no issues with the trigger, too.

The Glock 26 is also a real pleasure to shoot, which is basically why the Glock has plenty of avid followers in the industry. It has enough barrel length for good performance and accuracy.

Winner: Glock 26

We highly recommend Ruger SR9C and Ruger LC9. Both had great reviews with its shooting capacity.

Glock 26 or P365? Our Pick is…

Both pistols are small enough to carry and conceal, have identical magazine capacity, and performed well in the field. However, when it comes to Glock 26 vs Sig P365, the Glock has a slighter edge based on customer reviews. We also got the same result during our extensive testing. Due to some construction and function issues, the Sig P365 is a good backup but may not be the best choice for you. 

While the Sig Sauer P365 is a promising pistol, we are still impressed with the G26’s reliability and accuracy. Another great factor is the interchangeability of its magazines with other Glock models. The short trigger reset also makes it very functional when you need to fire successive rounds quickly.

  1. Great review. I’d like to see a head to head between the G26 and the M&P9 M2.0 Subcompact. I’ve owned both pistols and they’re VERY close.
