    INGO's Comprehensive Firearm Safety Recall Listing

    The following posts contain a listing of firearm-related safety recalls extending back several decades. If you find any incorrect information, broken links, or know of additional safety recalls, please send a private message to pudly or post the relevant info in this thread. Please do not post new recalls here. Most people won't read every post in this thread and new recalls deserve their own discussion. Thanks.


    Some manufacturers do not appear to maintain safety recall documentation on their web sites beyond a limited period of time. Since some unrepaired/replaced products may still be "in the wild", secondary information sources are used to document those recalls. Recalls documented via secondary sources and recalls that occurred before common use of the Internet are marked as: "Information not from the manufacturer".

    PS- Is anyone an established member at firearmsid.com (Firearm Forensics site)? They have a lot of older recall info that I'd like to tap into.
    Not sure if that firearm or accessory has been subject to a safety recall? Read INGO's Comprehensive Firearm Safety Recall Listing for an easy way to check.

    The mob is not worthy of respect. It is not interested in truth, or even compassion. It is only interested in power.
