BLASER R93 BOLT-ACTION RIFLES - SAFETY RECALL

Roman

Blaser in Germany has issued a recall notice in respect of the trigger units in all its R93-series rifles except the sporter models UIT, CISM, Tactical, LRS and LRS2. The units need to be inspected by authorised Blaser importers and rifles should not be used until this has been done.

'For achieving the highest security standard the design of the R93 prescribes that all parts of its trigger unit are manufactured from rust- and acid-resistant steel or are protected otherwise against corrosion. Blaser cannot be sure that in some cases in the past suppliers have delivered such pins of regular steel instead of the ordered rust and acid-resistant steel pins for the trigger unit. If these pins corrode, the correct function of the trigger is no longer guaranteed. It may happen that the trigger, having been pulled, does not return to its starting position. When the rifle is cocked and insofar ready to fire, an involuntary discharge of the rifle may occur. But of course the non-cocked rifle is absolutely safe!'
