Delaware State Police Adopts SIG Sauer P320RXP Pistols

posted on March 25, 2021

The Delaware State Police, a division of the Delaware Department of Public Safety and Homeland Security, has adopted SIG Sauer P320RXP pistols with a factory-installed SIG Sauer Electro-Optics ROMEO1Pro red-dot sight. The agency is responsible for law enforcement and traffic regulation across the state of Delaware with more than 700 troopers.

“We are extremely pleased with our decision to make a department-wide transition to the P320RXP and incorporate the capability of a red-dot optic to our P320 official duty pistols,” stated Col. 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 striker-fired SIG Sauer P320RXP is chambered in 9 mm and comes with factory-installed ROMEO1PRO Open Reflex sight. The handgun wears suppressor-height backup sights, has an ambidextrous slide catch lever, reversible magazine catch and small, medium and large modular grip modules. The ROMEO1PRO, which Shooting Illustrated reviewed last year with another pair of optics, is a miniature open reflex red-dot sight. Three or 6 MOA dot subtensions are available. A dozen different brightness settings allow adjustment for a full range of lighting conditions. It has a 20,000-hour battery life and IPX-7 waterproof rating.

“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, executive vice president or Law Enforcement Sales at SIG Sauer. “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 P320RXP pistols.”
