The Philadelphia Police Department has adopted the Sig Sauer M400 Pro Rifle for its SWAT officers.

The Philadelphia Police Department is the fourth largest police department in the United States with more than 6,300 sworn officers protecting more than 1.5 million citizens across 140 square-miles.

“The Sig Sauer M400 Pro is becoming the choice of police departments across the country for their special tactical operations,” said Tom Jankiewicz, Executive Vice President, Law Enforcement Sales for Sig Sauer. “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 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,” Jankiewicz said. “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 rifles will be distributed by Firing Line, Inc. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
