“The amount of positive feedback we have received from our officers about the SIG SAUER P320 pistol has been remarkable. Overwhelmingly, my officers have noted the overall comfort of their new P320 and we are seeing it in higher range scores,” began Col. Anthony S. Pike, Chief, Virginia Capitol Police. “Overall, we could not be more pleased with our transition to the P320 as our official duty firearm as we carry out our mission to protect and serve the Capitol of the Commonwealth of Virginia.”
The P320 is a modular, striker-fired pistol available in full-size, carry, compact, and subcompact sizing.
