New Hampshire gun maker SIG Sauer is facing another proposed class-action lawsuit involving claims the company’s P320 pistol can fire without the trigger being pulled.
The complaint, filed Friday in federal court in Concord on behalf of Arizona gun owner Derek Ortiz, claims the P320 pistol has a design flaw allowing it to discharge if dropped. The lawsuit claims the Newington-based company continued to sell the gun even after discovering its potential for malfunction.
The suit alleges SIG Sauer violated the New Hampshire Consumer Protection Act and is similar to a proposed class-action claim in Texas and an additional claim in Missouri.
