Sig And ATF Submit Final Arguments In Silencer Lawsuit

 

 

 

” Is Sig Sauer trying to wiggle around regulation or are regulators ruling on arbitrary and capricious logic? Those are the questions Sig and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives answer in their final motions in a lawsuit over classifying a Sig muzzle device.

  On paper, the New Hampshire-based company claimed the item was a muzzle brake, but the ATF classified it as a silencer, which would subject ownership and manufacturing of the item to strict regulations.

  Sig filed suit in a New Hampshire federal court April 2014 after contesting the ruling for a year. Although legal arguments quickly plateaued, public interest in the case grew as some gun rights advocates began to see the case as corporate advocacy — an effort to undermine laws regulating silencers.

  However, Sig’s attorney, Stephen Halbrook, said the company aims to simply challenge a regulator that “overreaches” how it interprets legal definitions.”

Collapsible Stocks, Rails, Suppressors … Ergonomics Galore

 

 

 

 

 

” When I learned that I would be accompanying the rag-tag bunch of heroes here at Guns.com to SHOT Show 2014 I was as giddy as a child en route to Disney World. The excitement quickly died down when I learned my first editorial would be the industry trends article you’re now perusing.

  The SIG MPX gets around this by using a simple blowback mechanism, where the recoil assembly resides inside the receiver. LWRC and Troy Industries have a different approach. They utilize the North Eastern Arms Group’s Compact Carbine Stock System. NEAG released their CCS last year in Canada and while it impressed them, the Canadian gun market is a fraction the size of the U.S. one. Thankfully, several large U.S. arms makers have taken it upon themselves to bring this ultra compact stocks to the good ol’ US of A. Helping negate one of the least mentioned shortcomings of the AR platform: its fixed length.

  Shorter stocks, lighter more versatile accessory mounting options and sound suppressors are driving the market in a politically sensitive direction. While guns will be a political issue for the foreseeable future, all of these trends are pointing gun owners towards the end game of the ultimate home defense weapon. One that is lightweight, compact, fully customizable and hearing safe indoors. Rarely in any market has growth been so ergonomic driven. Although, in no other field are ergonomics federally regulated.”

” George Bardwil, who owns linen company Bardwil Home, was in his E Street apartment when an intruder came into his home in January, The Daily Mail reports.

Mr. Bardwil, 60, threatened the intruder with a loaded .40 cal Sig Sauer. The man fled and Mr. Bardwil called the police.

After showing the cops footage from his home surveillance cameras, they arrested him under suspicions of owning an illegal firearm.”

Millionaire Points Gun At Burglar Who Broke Into His Home –

But Cops Arrest HIM Because Weapon Was Unlicensed

 

” Bardwil – known as the ‘Linen King’ – denies the charges and pleaded not guilty to gun possession at the Supreme Court in Manhattan yesterday.

His defense lawyer Michael Bachner told the New York Post that the loaded .40 cal Sig Sauer was kept in a secure box in Bardwil’s apartment and was legally registered to his bodyguard.

Prosecutors will recommend a three year sentence at court.

Mr Bachner told the New York Post: ‘There’s no dispute that George was being burglarized.

‘George had been the victim of multiple burglaries, and the DA’s office concedes that it was used in self defense.’ “

“SIG SAUER (Germany) has launched a major new line of modular competition pistols. The line has 9 base models, 7 special/accessorized models, and 20 modular accessories. The new X-Series pistols are based on the SIG P226 X-Series and I believe supplants the old SIG P226 X line.

Sig Sauer MK25 & M11 9mm Semi-Automatic Service Pistols

 

 

 

 

” Sig’s first successful entry into the modern double-stack magazine high-capacity 9mm pistol market was the P226, which is still in production, and is the basis for the two pistols shown here. M11 is the US Military designation for a slightly-modified Sig P228, and the MK25 is a slightly-modified P226.”

Gun Review: SIG Sauer M400 Rifle

 

 

 

 

 

” With its Swiss-made 550 series, Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft (SIG) earned an impressive reputation for producing rifles used by a nation of riflemen. Now SIG Sauer makes the Model 556 and Model 551-A1 gas-piston operated rifles in Exeter, N.H., as well as the AR-based gas-piston Model 516 rifle. With so many piston-operated designs it came as a surprise when SIG Sauer introduced a direct gas impingement system AR-style variant, the M400 semi-automatic-only carbine. ”

Sig Sauer P938 Nightmare Compact 9mm Semi-Automatic Pistol

 

  “The Nightmare is the latest variation of the popular Sig P938 semi-automatic pistol. The P938 follows on the heels of the P238 380 auto, but is chambered for the more-powerful 9x19mm cartridge. The P938 Nightmare has a unique appearance, with a dull black anodized frame matching the matte black Nitron slide, black checkered Hogue G10 grip panels, black barrel, hammer, and trigger. Contrasting with these are satin stainless slide lock, recoil spring guide rod, magazine release, and ambidextrous safety levers. Being a left-handed shooter, I particularly love the ambidextrous safety levers. The magazines are also bright stainless. Two magazines are supplied; one a six-round capacity that fits flush with the base of the grip frame, and the other a seven-round extended magazine with finger rest.”
