Newington, N.H.-(Ammoland.com)- SIG SAUER, Inc., is pleased to announce the Tampa Police Department will replace their official duty pistol from the Smith & Wesson M&P, to the SIG SAUER P320. The Tampa Police Department has over 1,000 sworn officers, covering three districts that encompass the entire municipality of Tampa, Florida.

“SIG SAUER is honored to earn the trust of the men and women of the Tampa Police Department through their selection of the P320 pistol as their official duty pistol,” began Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice president, Law Enforcement Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “The modularity of the P320, with its ability to select grip size, combined with the proven reliability, accuracy, and safety of the firearm made it the right choice for this diverse group of officers.”

The P320 is a modular, striker-fired pistol available in full-size, carry, compact, and subcompact sizing. The serialized trigger group makes the P320 adaptable to multiple caliber, size, and grip options. The P320 is available in 9mm, .357SIG, 40S&W, and .45ACP, with a choice of contrast, or SIGLITE Night Sights. The intuitive 3-point takedown requires no trigger pull for disassembly, and safety features include a striker safety, disconnect safety, and optional manual safety.

The Tampa Police Department will acquire 1,375, P320 pistols to replace their current Smith & Wesson M&P’s as the approved official duty pistol.

“We here at SIG SAUER are very proud to gain the confidence of the Tampa PD and assist them in safely carrying out their department’s mission – to reduce crime and enhance the quality of life through a cooperative partnership with all citizens,” concluded Jankiewicz.

Cost per unit it’s a wise decision of that department is on a tight budget -The Army paid about 200.00 per unit I wonder how much they cost under the blue label program ?

People will never understand. They will use the recall in every attempt to trash Sig. if the are Glock guys they continently Dover about the 1992,1993,2000 and many other Glock recalls. Of course social media didn’t exist back then so they just latch onto this. Sad

As an owner of both, gotta say as long as it’s the trigger upgraded Sig, that was a good move. Better trigger on the Sig translates to a more accurate gun platform. As always though, YMMV

I think it was a great decision. I’m very happy with my Sig P320 that I carry as my duty firearm.
