IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL NOTICE - May 29, 2009

PRODUCT:


Model 22A Pistols

DESCRIPTION OF THE HAZARD:


Smith & Wesson has identified a condition that may exist in certain model 22-A pistols. Based on our ongoing product review, we have determined that the slides of certain pistols manufactured from August 1, 2008 to February 19, 2009, may not meet the design specification. This can create a situation where insufficient headspace exists creating a risk of unintended discharge.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PRODUCT INVOLVED:


This recall applies only to 22-A pistols manufactured from August 1, 2008 to February 19, 2009. Affected pistols fall within the following serial number range:

UBW0000 - UBW9999
UBY0000 - UBY4104

REMEDY/ACTION TO BE TAKEN:


STOP USING YOUR PISTOL AND RETURN IT TO SMITH & WESSON AT ONCE.
Any unintended discharge of a firearm has the potential for causing injury, and we ask that you stop using your pistol immediately.

Please contact Smith & Wesson's customer service department for instructions on the return of your pistol.

VERIFICATION OF CORRECTIVE ACTION:


When your pistol is returned, you should note a punch dot which appears on the rear underside of the slide. This punch dot can be seen by locking the slide to the rear and looking at the underside of the slide as seen in the photograph below.
Punch Dot

This punch dot is verification that your slide meets specification and the pistol is safe to use. If your pistol already has this punch dot, you do not need to return the firearm.

CONSUMER CONTACT:


To receive a FedEx pre-paid billable stamp and shipping instructions to arrange for the modification of your pistol click here or contact Smith & Wesson directly at 1-800-331-0852. Please allow 2-3 weeks to receive the information packet from us.
