Conn. State Police To Issue SIG Sauer P220s

October 25, 2012  | 

The Connecticut State Police will begin issuing SIG Sauer P220, .45-caliber pistols to new recruits, according to a release from the firearm manufacturer.

The state police signed a contract for more than 1,200 pistols that will be delivered before the end of the year.

The agency conducted independent testing of several .40- and .45-caliber handguns from a number of manufacturers, and chose the P220 due to its ergonomic design, accuracy and reliability, according to Sig Sauer.

About 1,200 troopers patrol highways and areas not covered by local police departments in Connecticut. The agency's new P220s will be delivered in time for current class of state police trooper trainees to be the first troopers to carry the new sidearms.

I carried a 45 cal in Viet Nam and carried a Sig P220 45 cal most of my law enforcement career. It is a great weapon, with great knock down power. It is far better than the 40 cal. The Marines are ordering new 45 cal Weapons--- this should tell you something when they are goung back to the 45 cal.
