RUGER PRECISION RIFLE SAFETY BULLETIN

Ruger has issued a Safety Bulletin for certain Ruger Precision Rifles. Ruger recently learned that some Ruger Precision Rifles may experience interference between the aluminum bolt shroud and the cocking piece (also known as the firing pin back). In rare instances, the interference can disrupt the firing mechanism and cause it to not function properly. Possible results of this interference are light primer strikes or, in extreme cases, the rifle may not fire when the trigger is pulled. If the rifle fails to fire when the trigger is pulled, it may fire when the bolt handle is subsequently lifted. In rifles where this condition exists, the issue often resolves itself as the parts wear and the interference is reduced. Therefore, rifles that have fired more than 100 rounds with no issues or concerns (light primer indents or failure to fire) are unlikely to be affected, and no additional action is necessary.

Although only a small percentage of rifles appear to be affected and the Company is not aware of any injuries, Ruger is firmly committed to safety and is offering replacement aluminum bolt shrouds for affected rifles in order to eliminate the possibility of such interference.

Detailed information about this Safety Bulletin is available on our website at Ruger.com/RPRSafety

 

Please note that our entire inventory of Ruger Precision rifles has been upgraded.

SIG SAUER Voluntary Upgrade for the P320 Pistol

SIG Sauer has issued a voluntary upgrade notice for the P320 pistol.  The pistol could fire if dropped on the back of the slide.  This is due to inertia causing the trigger to be pulled.  GAT GUNS will not sell or deliver a P320 pistol to our customers until all of our stock has been upgraded by SIG.  There will be an official announcement on August 14th.

RUGER MK IV PISTOL RECALL

Although only a small percentage of pistols appear to be affected and we are not aware of any injuries, Ruger is firmly committed to safety and would like to retrofit all potentially affected pistols with an updated safety mechanism. Until your Mark IV™ pistol has been retrofitted or you verify that it is not subject to the recall, we strongly recommend that you not use your pistol.

How to determine if your pistol needs the retrofit: All Mark IV™ pistols produced prior to June 1, 2017 are potentially affected and therefore are being recalled. This includes Mark IV™ Target, Hunter, Competition, 22/45™, 22/45™ Lite and 22/45™ Tactical models. These models bear serial numbers beginning with "401" (2017 models) or "WBR" (2016 models).

Firearms NOT subject to the Recall: Newly manufactured Mark IV™ pistols will begin with serial number "500." Thus, if you have a Mark IV™ or 22/45™ pistol with a serial number beginning with the number "5," your pistol is not subject to the recall.

Firearms That Have Been Retrofitted Already: Mark IV™ and 22/45™ pistols retrofitted with the updated safety mechanism are easily identified by the letter "S" in the white safety dot that is visible when the safety is engaged.

You can go to the Ruger website to determine if your pistol is subject to the recall: https://ruger.com/dataProcess/markIVRecall/ and enter your serial number.
