    In the realm of firearms, the transition of service pistols within military forces signifies a notable change in operational preferences and technological advancements. The United States Army’s switch from the Beretta M9 to the Sig Sauer P320. The $580 million contract awarded to Sig Sauer in January 2017, not only crowned the P320 as the Army’s sidearm of choice but also highlighted the firearm’s adaptability and modular design, which allows for a variety of configurations.

    It provides interchangeable grips and can easily be converted between calibers 9mm, .357SIG, and .40S&W. David Lombardo, a consultant and expert in firearms and firearms safety and founder of the consulting group SAFER USA, told VICE News that the popularity of Sig Sauer’s P320s is due to its size.

    “The gun is a little bit smaller than a Glock-19,” Lombardo said, mentioning gun manufacturer Glock’s comparable pistol. “There are some minor differences, but realistically, from an operational perspective, there’s not much of a difference.”

    The 2022 filing (Armendariz et. al. v. Sig Sauer, Inc. USDC, New Hampshire No.1:22-cv-00536) is the latest, and by far largest P320 lawsuit against Sig Sauer on behalf of injured victims; it details each unintended, un-commanded firing and wounding of the users and the life-altering consequences. The documented incidents occurred across more than one dozen states.

    Attorney Robert W. Zimmerman of SMB said following the filing, “These men and women were highly trained officers, veterans, and responsible and safety-conscious gun users who put their trust in Sig Sauer, unaware that the gun they used to serve as a danger to themselves and anyone around them. We intend to prove that the Sig Sauer P320 is without question the most dangerous pistol on the market in the United States.” He added, “The P320 literally puts those who carry the gun in the line of fire, and we’ve seen time and again the devastating results of the gun’s safety defects and corporate deception.”
