In many threads, the gun owners are justifiably concerned about having the costs of litigation exceeding the costs of recovering their guns (if seized) or otherwise being out of reach. What I was wondering is - in which kind of situations do courts award attorney fees to the winning party?

Generally, no.

If you can show gross malfeasance/civil rights violations via USC 1983, you might have a chance of some recovery, including bail.
