Vermont State Police Adopts SIG Sauer M400 Pro Rifles

posted on March 12, 2020

The Vermont State Police has adopted the SIG Sauer M400 Pro Rifle as the official patrol rifle of the Vermont State Troopers. The law enforcement agency has jurisdiction for public safety throughout the Green Mountain State—which covers 9,623 square miles—with more than 300 sworn officers.

“We chose the SIG Sauer M400 Pro Rifle because of the superior quality, reliability and accuracy of the rifle,” said Sergeant Eugene Duplissis, head firearm instructor and armorer for the Vermont State Police. “This was an ideal choice for our department because the firearm has been extensively tested for reliability in extreme conditions, and the service and support from SIG Sauer has been outstanding. Our Troopers' transition to the M400 Pro has been flawless and motivating because of their familiarity with the platform, performance, reliability, accuracy and capabilities of the rifle. Vermont State Troopers are proud to have this rifle and confident it will help them protect the people of Vermont.”

The SIG Sauer M400 Pro is a direct-gas-impingement AR-15 chambered in 5.56 NATO with a cold-hammer-forged, 16-inch barrel. A full-length freefloat M-Lok handguard eases mounting of lights and/or lasers. It comes with ambidextrous controls, the enhanced SIG trigger, a six-position telescoping stock with integral QD points and a rotating lock bolt. The carbine weighs 6.5 pounds.

“We are honored that the Vermont State Police has chosen to join the growing list of law enforcement across the country that are deploying the SIG Sauer M400 Pro,” said Tom Jankiewicz, executive vice president of law enforcement sales at SIG Sauer. “Our commitment to the law enforcement community is to provide them with superior firearms to protect and serve their communities, and the quality, reliability and performance of the M400 Pro truly exemplifies this commitment.”
