SIG Sauer announced the recent adoption of an optic-ready platform by a new agency. The Delaware State Police selected the SIG P320 RXP. The platform comes equipped with the ROMEO1PRO red dot sight. Now the combo will equip a department boasting more than 700 troopers.
Delaware State Police Selects SIG P320 RXP
“We are extremely pleased with our decision to make a department-wide transition to the P320 RXP and incorporate the capability of a red dot optic to our P320 official duty pistols,” stated Colonel Melissa Zebley, Superintendent of Delaware State Police. “All of our troopers recently completed the training and instruction process with the new pistols and optic and we’ve noticed the outstanding accuracy of the P320 pistol and the pairing with the ROMEO1Pro optics has added a new level of fast, responsive target acquisition.”
The SIG P320RXP comprises a 9mm striker-fired platform. It comes topped with a factory-installed ROMEO1PRO open reflex sight. The pistol also includes suppressor-height backup sights and ambidextrous slide and magazine controls. A modular polymer grip frame comes in small, medium and large. The intuitive three-point takedown doesn’t require a trigger pull for disassembly. Finally, the system includes a striker safety and disconnect safety.
SIG ROMEO1PRO Features
The SIG Electro-Optics ROMEO1PRO miniature open reflex red dot sight comes with either a 3 MOA or 6 MOA dot. It features 12 brightness settings for a full range of lighting conditions. Meanwhile, the TruHold Lockless Zeroing System endures recoil and returns to zero, according to SIG.
The optic comes with a molded glass aspheric lens with high-performance coatings for light transmission. A new upgraded point-source emitter also helps increase brightness in day or night conditions, according to SIG. A 20,000-hour battery life and IPX-7 waterproof rating helps keep the opting running. An aircraft-grade aluminum body protects internals, while a ruggedized steel protective shroud provides further protection.
“As more and more law enforcement agencies are beginning to see the value of red dot optics, and allow them as an option within their agencies, the Delaware State Police is leading the way,” added Tom Jankiewicz, SIG’s Executive Vice president of Law Enforcement Sales. “This is the very first statewide agency to incorporate a red dot pistol as the department-wide standard, and we are incredibly proud of the positive feedback we have received throughout their transition and training to the SIG SAUER P320 RXP pistols.”
