Winchester XPR Rifle Recall - safety issue

Postby allingeneral » Sat, 12 Dec 2015 17:33:00

In October 2015, Winchester issued a recall and important safety notice for Winchester XPR rifles.

XPR rifles have the potential to fire an unintended round when the safety switch is manipulated. During continuous product testing, Winchester found that moving the safety switch on the XPR rifle “may cause movement in the trigger system that could result in unintended firing of certain XPR rifles.”

From Winchester:

In our continual product testing, we have learned of an issue that is important to the safety of all XPR owners. It has come to our attention that a manipulation of the safety switch may cause movement in the trigger system that could result in unintended firing of certain XPR rifles.

WARNING: Do not load or shoot any XPR rifle until it has been returned to our service center and received a retrofit. Failure to follow this warning may result in a risk of harm, including serious personal injury or death to you and others.

In order to exercise an abundance of caution on behalf of all XPR owners, we have decided to replace certain trigger group parts at no charge. This will require that all XPR rifles are sent to our service facility for a retrofit. We respectfully require all owners to return their rifles for the retrofit.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONTACTING WINCHESTER ABOUT HOW TO RECEIVE THE RETROFIT FOR YOUR RIFLE ARE FOUND BELOW.
