What’s the Problem?
According to the ArmaLite Recall Notice, the company has determined that the disconnector and hammer on the following rifles were not properly manufactured and can fail to ensure proper engagement of the hammer:
- ArmaLite AR-10
- ArmaLite SPR
- ArmaLite MOD 1
- ArmaLite SPR MOD 2
- ArmaLite M15
- ArmaLite Eagle-15
This manufacturing defect can result in an unsafe condition in which the rifle doubles (discharging twice when the trigger is pulled one time), according to the recall notice.
“This is an important safety issue and we are therefore implementing a plan so that the affected rifles can be serviced and that the non-performing disconnectors and hammers can be replaced,” ArmaLite said.
If you purchased a rifle that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact ArmaLite to either have the rifle returned to Armalite or evaluated at your local firearms dealer, free of charge.
