Joe has now finally revealed that he has been working on a 7075-T6 billet P365 grip module for the SIG Sauer P365 pistol.

As TFB recently reported, on May 11th, 2021, SIG SAUER filed a lawsuit against Springfield Armory. This lawsuit alleges that Springfield infringed upon SIG’s intellectual property in the form of patents on their pistol magazines, specific to the P365 and Hellcat model mags. Clearly, there is a great deal of overlap in terms of the sector of the market that each company is targeting with these handguns. Springfield has now fired back with their own statement, asserting that they believe this is the real cause for SIG’s lawsuit, and that their Hellcat magazines do not actually breach any of the rules surrounding US patent law. Springfield’s press release to this effect reads as follows.

SIG Sauer Introduces "X-Change Kit" for P365 Pistols

Rival Arms Announces Upgrade Parts for SIG P320 and P365 Pistols

Texas-based Rival Arms has made their name primarily as a Glock shop. While they do offer a handful of products for other firearms, like barrels for some Smith & Wesson handguns and a Ruger 10/22 chassis, the majority of their offerings to date have been Glock parts like custom slides, barrels, full upgrade kits, and more.

With a July 27th press release, Rival Arms has announced just that, and they will soon offer a menu of new SIG upgrades.
