Newington, N.H.-( SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to announce that the City of Manchester, New Hampshire has completed the transition to the SIG SAUER P320 pistol as their official duty firearm. The Manchester Police Department is the largest city in the State of New Hampshire with a complement of more than 225 sworn officers protecting over 110,000 citizens.

“When it comes to our official duty firearm safety, reliability, and accuracy is paramount – the SIG SAUER P320 delivers on all fronts. Our officers also appreciate the modularity of the pistol, and having the ability to choose the grip size that is the most comfortable for them,” said Chief Carlo Capano, City of Manchester Police Department. “The Manchester Police Department’s transition to the P320 has been absolutely seamless from start to finish, and we are very proud to carry a sidearm that was made right here in New Hampshire.”

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.

“We are honored that the Manchester Police Department has chosen the P320 as their official duty firearm for its full complement of officers,” said Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice President, Law Enforcement Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “It’s especially humbling, and rewarding, to know that the men and women of the Manchester Police Department whom protect and serve the largest city in the State of New Hampshire, where our operations are based, have entrusted SIG SAUER to carry out their mission.”

Love to read the comments from all the armchair warriors. These comment sections are frequently awash in dumbasses that wrongly think tearing down others builds cred. I’ll leave that right there.

Oh yawn…..Cops get new guns. Now we need to read a story about a cop who can hit his target more the once with the first 16 shots fired. The gun won’t make a difference with 95%+ of LE. What they need is training or willingness to be proficient with the weapon. I bet I fire more rds in 1 range session the the PD does all year.

Hell IMO he shouldn’t have either thumb on the slide !!!, perfect way to cause a malfunction.

Vernon Kuhns

Why does the guy in the pic have BOTH THUMBS ON THE SLIDE?!?!?!


To slice his thumbs open….duh


Re the photo: I wish Manchester PD’s PIO and photo editor would grab their ears and pull their heads out of their arses! I know that the photo above the article was posed…but ALL personnel at the firing range SHALL wear eye and hearing protection. Lead by example, eh?

What did Sig do to the take down levers on these guns that they say they can not do on civilian guns to make them operate properly?
