SIG SAUER RIFLE RECALL

SIG SAUER, Inc. has determined that a limited number of rifles in the SIG716 DMR®, SIG516® Carbon Fiber and SIGM400® Predator models were built with a two-stage SIG SAUER trigger that may have an improperly heat-treated hammer. Over time this could result in a trigger malfunction creating a significant safety hazard.


SIG SAUER is issuing a mandatory recall to replace the hammer and trigger assembly in these specific rifles. This recall does not affect any military or law enforcement rifles or any SIG MCX®/SIG MPX® products. SIG SAUER will correct any of the affected firearms at no cost to the customer.

To determine if a specific firearm is affected by the recall, go to

If you are a customer who is affected by the recall, stop using the firearm immediately and follow the instructions on the website or call SIG SAUER Customer Service by dialing 603-610-3000, option #1.

CANIK PISTOL SEVERE DUTY UPGRADE

Century Arms has recently released the Canik Product Safety Warning and Severe Duty Upgrade Notice for certain models of Canik pistols. While all Canik pistols comply with and exceed current industry and military abusive handling standards, evaluations and tests have shown that repeated abusive dropping of pistols may result in damage to safety features and unintentional discharge.

While there are no safety concerns with the affected models under ordinary conditions, Canik is committed to manufacturing safe firearms, and so is offering this voluntary upgrade for certain models. The upgrade is to the trigger safety spring and firing pin block spring in order to enhance drop discharge prevention in heavy/severe duty conditions that are beyond industry standards.

The upgrade process should be in place by Friday, September 8th, 2017.

For the full details, follow the link below to the Canik website.

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.
