Three former managers of Sig Sauer went on trial Tuesday in Kiel, Germany, accused of illegally selling firearms to Colombia by funneling them from Germany to the company’s affiliate in New Hampshire, according to media reports.
The managers were responsible for the delivery of more than 47,000 SP 2022 pistols from Germany to the U.S. between April 2009 and April 2011, according to an indictment cited by German media outlet Kieler Nachrichten.
Of those weapons, more than 38,000 were resold to Colombia, which violated the company’s export license. They face imprisonment of up to five years or fines.
