The New Jersey State Police (NJSP) has selected the P229 Enhanced Elite in 9 mm as its new duty pistol. For the past 14 years, the NJSP has carried the P228 in 9 mm. The P229 Enhanced Elite maintains that legacy, but adds the one-piece enhanced ergonomic grip, which provides a better fit for a wider range of hands.

“We are pleased to continue to provide the duty pistol carried by the men and women of the New Jersey State Police, said Tom Jankiewicz, SIG Sauer Executive Director of Law Enforcement Sales. “The agency has been a valued member of the SIG Law Enforcement community for over a decade. We look forward to another decade of service with their new P229s.”

The New Jersey State Police will take delivery of 2,800 P229 Enhanced Elite pistols.

What’s the significance of the “overstamp,” and were there other military 1928 Thompsons besides the Navy guns?
