More proof of the following:
1.) Sig is inherently flawed.
2.) Sig < CZ
3.) The Army's decision to choose Sig was beyond flawed.
4.) This lends further credence to the claim that Obama's "scandal-free presidency" is an Irish like outright falsehood
5.) Gilgondorin is justified for not liking Sig

Like Tango, I also have 2 Sig's, a P229 and a P226 MasterShop.  The MasterShop is the smoothest, most accurate gun I've ever had.

As far as export violations, that has nothing to do with the quality of the product.  In this case, the company is accused of a diversion or transshipment to a different end user than specified on the export documents. 
That's a very serious no-no in the Europe and US of any item on the export munitions list.

You could send a homemade 'zip gun' that was of poor construction and didn't actually work, to a relative in Mexico or Canada.  That's still an export violation.

As an anecdote, I'm aware of someone who went to federal prison in the US for shipping his Direct TV receiver and antenna to his brother in the Caribbean without an export license.  Yep, it's on the export munitions list, because it contains an encryption chip that is stronger than allowed without an export license.
