The Newington-based Sig Sauer sold 3,000 handguns to the New Jersey State Police for nearly $2 million. When the weapons were delivered in the year 2014, the lawsuit said that many of the guns were failed to work when fired.

The lawsuit also said that Sig Sauer failed to provide new guns to the state police by an agreed-upon date.

According to the New Hampshire Public Radio, New Jersey's Attorney General has filed a breach of the contract complaint, seeking the refund, and also nearly $900,000 to cover up the cost of purchased holsters.
