Gun Fight

Back in the early Nineties, the legal slapfight between Glock and Smith & Wesson got so acrimonious that you couldn't buy their products from the same wholesalers, and Glock changed the rollmark on their model 22 and 23 pistols from ".40S&W" to just plain ".40".

Now it looks like Sig Sauer is going after Springfield Armory, claiming that the magazines for the latter's Hellcat infringe on two patents that the former filed for the P365's sticks. No telling if this will get as involved as Glock v. S&W, but certain corners of the gunternet are getting out their fanboy flags.
