TIKKA - SAKO - BERETTA recall
Since November 2004 a serious problem has surfaced affecting stainless steel Tikka and Sako rifles. There have been several instances of "self-destruction," some involving personal injury. Nothing has been posted (as of 12-26-2004) on any of the three Web sites. One user's report noted, referring to the SAKO Finnlite model, "They have all been pulled from the shelves." This is no minor problem as can be seen if you examine some of the photos at http://tinyurl.com/4k36x (scroll down to "Re: Sako Blow-up" posted by "Lawndart") you will see the a result one shooter. The current thinking is a problem with the stainless steel barrels and some report offers to replace just the barrel while others report offers to replace the entire rifle. A poster at another forum (http://tinyurl.com/6mfuo) wrote: "recall on [Tikka] T3 Stainless rifles with serial numbers starting with 419140 and going to 461951." This information should not, however, be accepted as all-inclusive. Several shooters wrote they had received a "recall notice" from Beretta. Also, several people provided telephone numbers: Beretta 800-636-3420; in Canada, contact Stoeger's
800-263-1945. (3/05)


BROWNING
MODEL A-BOLT II STAINLESS,
300 REMINGTON ULTRA MAGNUM CALIBER RIFLES

RECALL: No attempt should be made to load or shoot a recalled Browning rifle.

Browning, model A-Bolt II Stainless, 300 Remington Ultra Magnum caliber Rifles with a ten digit serial number beginning with the number 0 are being recalled. Continual and extensive shooting tests have revealed a potential safety problem in this particular model of the A-Bolt rifle. Browning warns all owners of the A-Bolt II Stainless 300 Remington Ultra Magnum rifles to immediately discontinue any further shooting of these rifles and return the entire rifle as soon as possible to Browning at the address listed below.

Browning 1 (800) 727-4312
Attn: Dept. A-Bolt II

FN/BROWNING
MODEL HI-POWER, 9MM LUGER CALIBER, PISTOL

Warning: This make and model pistol may have the potential for UNINTENTIONAL DISCHARGE as the slide finishes closing without pulling the trigger.

With the manual thumb safety on safe, magazine inserted, and the firearm loaded and cocked, pulling the trigger will usually not discharge the firearm. However, pulling the trigger after performing the above operations will cause the trigger lever to contact the forward end of the sear lever. The sear lever then rotates about its pin, causing the rear end of the sear lever to push down on the sear, but not enough for disengagement from the hammer since the safety physically blocks its path. When the trigger is released the sear does not return to its full seated position at the cocking notch. The force now needed to disengage the sear from the hammer is less, due to the new position of the sear. Theoretically, the trigger pull is lowered and a jar to the firearm could disengage the sear from the hammer, possibly bypassing the half cock safety. The loading of a live round into the chamber and letting the slide close was enough force to cause a discharge without the trigger being pulled.

BROWNING
MODEL A-500, SHOTGUN

RECALL: Browning is recalling the trigger assemblies from all Browning A-500 shotguns. This is a new semiautomatic shotgun, which Browning introduced in 1987.

During extensive shooting tests under laboratory conditions, Browning encountered a parts breakage in the trigger assembly on the A-500. This failure could cause an unsafe condition if it were to occur.

As a precaution, Browning is replacing all trigger assemblies on all A-500 shotguns sold since its introduction. All A-500 shotguns, which contain the new replacement trigger assembly, can be identified by the letter H stamped on the bottom front of the trigger guard plate.

Therefore, if you own a Browning A-500 shotgun which does not have the letter H stamped on the bottom forward part of the trigger guard plate, your trigger assembly must be recalled.

DO NOT LOAD YOUR A-500 UNTIL A NEW TRIGGER ASSEMBLY IS INSTALLED.

Please call our A-500 Recall Department at 1 (800) 322-4626. Missouri residents call collect at (314) 287-6800.

You will receive a special A-500 recall kit to expedite this modification of your A-500 shotgun.

We apologize for this inconvenience. There will be no charge for the replacement trigger assembly and you will be reimbursed for all your shipping costs.

BROWNING
MODEL BELGIUM OVER and UNDER, SHOTGUNS

RECALL: A certain quantity of Belgian-made, single trigger, over and under shotguns and over and under Express Rifles contains a selector-safety that can be moved to the left or right while the selector-safety is in the forward, off-safe, fire position. It is sometimes possible for these specific guns to accidentally discharge upon opening the gun following a certain sequence of rather unnatural manipulations of the selector-safety.

This warning does NOT concern Browning Citori over and under shotguns.

If you possess a single trigger, Belgian-made, over and under of any gauge or caliber, regardless of when you may believe it was produced, you are urged to perform the below inspection sequence:

Point the muzzle in a safe direction.
Open the gun to make certain it is unloaded.
Move the selector-safety to one side and then fully forward to the OFF SAFE (fire) position.
With the selector-safety fully forward, attempt to move the selector-safety either straight to the left or to the right (barrel selection).
WARNING: If your selector-safety can be moved to the left or right while in the OFF SAFE (fire) position, you are urged to have your gun promptly modified by an authorized Browning Service Center or by Browning's Arnold Service Department.

For return instructions and a special expedite label please write to:

Browning Service Center
Department B-25

Arnold, Missouri 63010-9406

Timintn,
Now that is funny. Remington has one recall and the horse gets drawn out. Then the other guys get put through the wringer. I like Remingtons most and I saw it as a good reply. Thanks for supplying the information.
