Certain faulty aspects of some of Sig Sauer’s firearms have been coming to light lately. And, unfortunately, they’re in the midst of another mandatory product recall.
This time around, the recall has to do with the company’s Sig 716 DMR, 516 Carbon Fiber, and M400 Predators with two-stage triggers. It has come to the company’s attention that many of these individual firearms have an improperly heat-treated hammer.
Over time, this can create a very serious safety hazard. Therefore, in order to avoid these negative repercussions, these models must have a replacement of their hammer and trigger assembly as soon as possible.
Because of the urgency of this situation, it is imperative that customers immediately check to see if their firearm is part of the list of models that could have been affected.
The company explains that models that may be affected have a “SIG” marking that has been inscribed on the hammer of the firearm. The company’s website also contains a serial-number search tool, with instructions on what to do next. Click here to use this tool.
Customers whose firearm has been affected in the recall will be sent a box and pre-addressed and shipping label. Once the facility receives the returned firearm, there will be a 2-3 week turnaround time until the customer can receive the modified gun.
Military and law enforcement rifles are not included in the recall, not are SIG MCX or MPX products.
