Defective Gun Misfires

SMB represents dozens of injured federal agents, law enforcement officers, and civilians whose defective SIG Sauer handguns have caused life-altering injuries.

Back to All Practice Areas

These individuals have received serious, often career-ending, injuries through no fault of their own; injuries that occurred when their Sig Sauer P320 pistols misfired, firing a live round without them pulling the trigger.

SIG Sauer, Inc., headquartered in New Hampshire, has failed to issue a recall for this dangerous product, placing potentially one million Sig Sauer P320 gun owners at risk for serious injury or death.

WHAT IS A SIG SAUER P320?

The Sig Sauer P320 is a striker-fired, semi-automatic pistol made by SIG Sauer, Inc. in New Hampshire. After landing a massive deal to supply these pistols to the U.S. Army, Sig Sauer made these pistols for law enforcement and the general public. While Sig Sauer designed external safeties into each P320 sold to the military, they did not carry this design over to the non-military P320s. The vast majority of P320 models for sale to federal agencies, law enforcement agencies, and the general public do not even offer external safeties as an option.

IS THE SIG SAUER P320 PRONE TO FIRING WITHOUT A TRIGGER PULL?

These guns are prone to firing without the user pulling on the trigger. Sig Sauer was ordered to fix the pistols for the military when it submitted its P320 design but continued to sell the commercial version of the gun without external safeties. Even with a “voluntary upgrade” later offered for these pistols, the Sig Sauer P320 is still operating with a potentially deadly design defect, which can inadvertently discharge, even when the gun is holstered, according to multiple lawsuits filed.
