Guns Philadelphia Police Departments Adopts SIG SAUER M400 Pro Rifles Candice Horner December 18, 2018 Join the Conversation It seems that more than ever, departments are switching to SIG SAUER products. We get a lot of press releases, and these types of releases have been coming more from SIG than any other manufacturer. We're not sure if departments have all of a sudden realized they need to upgrade their firearms or maybe they've gotten more funding? Either way, units are getting rid of outdated guns. Here's the most recent statement from SIG SAUER: Newington, N.H. (December 18, 2018) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to announce the Philadelphia Police Department has adopted the SIG SAUER M400 Pro Rifle for their SWAT officers. The Philadelphia Police Department is the fourth largest police department in the United States with over 6,300 sworn officers protecting over 1.5 million citizens across 140 square-miles. Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice President, Law Enforcement Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. began, “the SIG SAUER M400 Pro is becoming the choice of police departments across the country for their special tactical operations. It’s designed to exceed military standards with features that are most requested by law enforcement agencies, is engineered to be the most accurate and reliable rifle in its class, and can be quickly and easily deployed in extraordinary enforcement situations.” The SIG SAUER M400 Pro is an AR-platform rifle with a direct impingement gas operating system. The M400 features a full-length free-float M-LOK™ hand guard, enhanced SIG trigger 6 position telescoping stock, and a rotating lock bolt. “As one of the largest municipal police forces in the country, and the first department to establish a fast response tactical team, the Philadelphia Police Department’s choice of the SIG SAUER M400 Pro rifle for their SWAT operations clearly shows the quality and reliability of the rifle for specialized enforcement purposes,” continued Jankiewicz. “We are honored that this prestigious department has chosen the SIG SAUER M400 Pro Rifle, and we look forward to serving the Philadelphia Police Department, and their SWAT operations, to help them carry out their mission to protect and serve the citizens of Philadelphia.” The SIG SAUER M400 Pro rifles will be distributed by Firing Line, Inc.
