Recalls

Jul 072014
 

Heads up, everybody; Remington Arms Company is voluntarily recalling Remington Model 700 and Model Seven rifles which were manufactured from May 1, 2006 through April 9, 2014 and which have an X-Mark Pro trigger. Rifles manufactured after April 9, 2014 are not subject to recall.

International Trigger Replacement Program:

Remington recently discovered a potential assembly problem in certain X-Mark Pro trigger mechanisms. This problem may pose a potential safety hazard.

If your rifle was manufactured between May 1, 2006 and April 9, 2014, your rifle may be subject to a safety recall. You should stop using your rifle immediately due to the risk of unintentional discharge. Visit xmprecall.remington.com for information about how to determine whether your rifle is subject to this recall.

Since discovering the assembly problem, Remington has changed and improved its
assembly process for the X-Mark Pro trigger mechanism. Remington is working on plans to offer a trigger replacement program for all affected rifles outside the United States. At no cost to you, Remington will arrange for a qualified gunsmith, using a specified protocol, to replace your current trigger mechanism with a new X-Mark Pro trigger mechanism manufactured under the revised assembly process. Our trusted international distributors will be helping Remington make the arrangements for trigger mechanism replacements.

Remington is working diligently to manufacture and ship new XMP trigger mechanisms internationally. Our best estimate is that shipments of the new trigger mechanisms to international markets will begin before the end of May.

For updates concerning the trigger replacement program, please check back on this
website or contact your country’s Remington distributor. We will provide updates as soon as additional information and replacement program details become available. We are working hard to ensure that your trigger mechanism is replaced as quickly as possible.

We appreciate your patience as we work through this issue. Remington is committed to the quality and safety of its products and we deeply apologize for this inconvenience. Please remember to stop using your rifle until a replacement trigger mechanism has been installed.

If you own a Remington Model 700 or Model Seven rifle with an X-Mark Pro trigger, please enter your serial number at this page on the Remington website to determine if your rifle needs to be inspected as part of the recall.

via Springfield Armory:

Springfield Armory® is initiating this voluntary safety recall to upgrade 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm and 3.3 XD-S™ .45ACP pistols with new components, which eliminate the possibility of a potentially dangerous condition. We want to emphasize that no injuries have been reported to date.

Springfield has determined that under exceptionally rare circumstances, some 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm and .45ACP caliber pistols could experience an unintended discharge during the loading process when the slide is released, or could experience a double-fire when the trigger is pulled once. The chance of these conditions existing is exceptionally rare, but if they happen, serious injury or death could occur.

This Safety Recall applies only to:
Springfield 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm pistols – serial numbers between XS900000 and XS938700
Springfield 3.3 XD-S™ .45ACP pistols – serial numbers between XS500000 and XS686300.

This Safety Recall does not apply to any XD® or XD(M)® pistols.
