SIG 300 blackout recall

SIG SAUER is conducting a mandatory replacement of the carriage assembly in SIG MCX rifles.

SIG has found through extensive factory testing that in extremely rare instances, not reported in the field and extremely difficult to replicate, a condition may exist causing an unintended discharge.

Failure to follow the loading procedures and basic rules of safe firearms handling outlined in the user’s manual has the potential to cause serious bodily harm or death.
Although this has only been witnessed in 300 blackout, SIG has decided to upgrade all MCX models since the MCX is a modular platform and we want to ensure the quality and reliability of all products we manufacture.

Good find. Thanks for sharing.

I do have a 300 Blackout, but only the lower is actually SIG parts. The upper is AAC. I have the MPX 9mm complete weapon, but that has a different carrier group. I should be good there too.

Stuff like this is why it is absolutely critical to have proper muzzle discipline 100% of the time.
