By agreement, approved by the U.S. District Court of New Hampshire, Sig will â€śstayâ€ť itâ€™s lawsuit against the ATF until Sept. 17. In the meantime, both sides agree, Sig will send the ATF a sample of its muzzle brake for review and the ATF will issue a ruling, its third, by Aug. 6.
Faced with the federal lawsuit, which also names U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder as a defendant, the U.S. Attorneyâ€™s office notified Sig that it would reconsider its two prior decisions that call Sigâ€™s muzzle brake an item â€śintended only for useâ€ť when making a silencer. The ATF asked the federal court to give it time to â€śreview the matter and issue a new decision,â€ť according to court records.
Terms of an agreement, filed with the federal court, say that if the ATFâ€™s decision is agreeable to Sig, the Newington firearms manufacturer â€świll have obtained the relive sought without further litigation,â€ť If the ATF again rules that Sigâ€™s product is a silencer component, the federal civil suit will proceed, according to the agreement approved by federal Judge Paul Barbadaro.
