Armalite Rifles

Armalite Recall

NOTICE OF POTENTIAL SAFETY ISSUE AND RECALL NOTICE FOR ARMALITE MODELS:

AR-10, SPR MOD 1, SPR MOD 2, M15, AND EAGLE-15

We have determined that the disconnector and the hammer on some of our AR-10, SPR MOD 1, SPR MOD 2, M15, Eagle-15 Model rifles were not properly manufactured by third party vendors and that the disconnectors or hammers in those rifles can fail to ensure proper engagement of the hammer. This, in turn, can result in an unsafe condition in which the rifle doubles (discharging twice when the trigger is pulled one time). A very small percentage of the rifles sold have been reported to have this condition. 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.

HOW TO DETERMINE IF YOUR RIFLE NEEDS SERVICE

This disconnector and the hammer issue could potentially be found in the AR-10, SPR MOD 1, SPR MOD 2, M15, Eagle-15 models built 03/14/2016 – 04/15/2016 and 06/20/201616 – 07/25/2016.
