SMITH & WESSON M&P380 SHIELD EZ CONSUMER ADVISORY

 

Smith & Wesson has found that the version of this pistol with the manual thumb safety can have that safety unintentionally engaged by shooting recoil. This occurs with ammunition that produces a high felt recoil, and will not allow the next round to be fired until the safety is manually disengaged.

 

Smith & Wesson has already improved the design of the pistol so that recently manufactured firearms will not have this issue. If your firearm may be affected, click here or follow the link below to see if your serial number would be subject to an upgrade. If so, follow the instructions on the page to have your pistol upgraded.

From the RUGER Newsroom on the recent Stockholder Decision

Ruger wants to assure its customers and long-term shareholders that the company is now required to prepare a report on the company. In no way will the shareholder decision affect the company's products or business which is lawful and protected by the Constitution. 

 

They remind us that they strongly support the Second Amendment not because they sell firearms, but because they cherish the rights protected by it, and that to allow those rights to be diminished for political expediency is not the approach that the company will be taking.
