Savage Arms has issued a recall on all BMag rifles sold before September 2015.
Their recall notes the following:
Savage Arms has discovered that the bolt on some B.MAG rifle may inadvertently catch the safety button and slide it forward into the “fire” position. This condition is primarily present if downward pressure is applied to the bolt too early while pushing it forward. While Savage has received no reports of accidents due to this condition, we have decided to offer free retrofits of all B.MAG rifle bolts out of an abundance of caution and in our ongoing commitment to quality and safety.
To avoid possible unintentional discharge or injury, do not use your B.MAG rifle untill your bolt has been retrofitted with a new bolt handle and cap. This retrofit only applies to Savage B.MAG rifle bolts.
We just received word that Sig Sauer is releasing a variety of new firearms based on existing lines. Also coming are some new accessories.
Something that stands out is the addition of keymod rails on various rifles as well as the MPX. Sig is using -km in the part number to denote keymod. Also note that the MPX Carbine is official (16″ barrel).
Interestingly the P226 9mm Equinox is back on the list. That pistol was available for order in 2014 and then pulled from the first 2015 price list but is now back on the most recent price list.
We just received news that Ruger is rolling out a new model of rifle called the Ruger Precision Bolt Action Rifle. The rifle is being introduce in three calibers: .308 Win, 6.5 Creekmoor, and .243 Win.
Ruger is using a Samson rail and a the barrels are threaded with a cap in case you want to install a muzzle device or suppressor. The rifle supports AR-15 handguards, grips, and stocks. It also accepts SR-25 and Magpul mags. Also note that the provided stock side folds.
We received an alert from our Sig Sauer rep yesterday advising against changing the trigger on the MPX. There seems to be an issue caused by the removal of the trigger bridge which will lead to extra wear and reduce the life of the components. Removing that bridge will void the warranty.
There is a thread going over at SigForum.com about the Sig P225 and Jeff Creamer of Sig Sauer confirmed that Sig is releasing a US made P225 to be released sometime around July or August. Continue reading →
