Oklahoma Highway Patrol Selects Sig Sauer P320

NEWINGTON, N.H. — SIG SAUER, Inc., has been selected by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol to deliver more than 800 P320® Full-Size pistols in 9mm. An exhaustive test and evaluation found the P320 to meet or exceed the Highway Patrol’s expectations. Over a two-week span, P320 pistols were evaluated by cadets and firearms instructors of the 63rd Academy class. After more than 78,000 rounds of assorted brands of ammunition, the P320 continued to perform “without any mechanical issues,” according to a letter from the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety. “All of us here at SIG are proud to have the Oklahoma Highway Patrol be the first state police agency to adopt the P320,” said Tom Jankiewicz, Vice President of Law Enforcement Sales for SIG SAUER, Inc. “The pistol’s safety, accuracy and reliability are what our law enforcement customers expect in a striker-fired pistol worthy of the SIG SAUER name.”

Designed with the input of law enforcement officers, the P320 offers enhanced ergonomics, a short, crisp trigger pull with a tactile reset and the ability to take down the pistol with no tools and without the need to press the trigger. Instructors also found that inexperienced shooters saw a reduced learning curve with the P320 and they progressed more quickly through training. The ability to switch interchangeable grip modules allows each officer to have a pistol that is fit to their hand, helping them more quickly find success on the range. “We have observed the pistol to be accurate, reliable and operator friendly,” noted Lt. Todd Fenimore of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. “We are looking forward to the statewide pistol transition.” For more information, visit www.sigsauer.com
