    PPK and PPK/S Recall

    In case it hasn't been posted already (I didn't see it in a quick search):

    Smith and Wesson Recall: Walther PPK and PPK/S Series

    On February 20, 2009 Smith & Wesson Corp. issued a recall of certain pistols that could fire without the trigger being pulled. The gun maker said it was recalling all Walther PPK and PPK/S pistols that it manufactured from March 21, 2002, until February 3, 2009.

    Smith & Wesson posted a recall notice on its Web site at:

    PPK Hammer Block Recall - Smith & Wesson

    The issue is a problem in the affected pistol models that "may permit a round to be discharged without the trigger being pulled." Smith & Wesson has identified a condition that may exist in certain PPK and PPK/S pistols which may permit a round to be discharged without the trigger being pulled. When the manual safety is disengaged, Smith & Wesson's Product Engineering Group has determined that the possibility exists in certain firearms that lowering the hammer may cause a chambered round to fire.

    This recall applies to all Walther PPK and PPK/S pistols manufactured by Smith & Wesson from March 21, 2002, until February 3, 2009.

    The Serial Numbers of the pistol subject to this recall are as follows:

    0010BAB - 9999BAB
    0000BAC - 9999BAC
    0000BAD - 9999BAD
    0000BAE - 9999BAE
    0000BAF - 9999BAF
    0000BAH - 9999BAH
    0000BAJ - 9999BAJ
    0000BAK - 9999BAK
    0000BAL - 5313BAL
    0000BAM - 1320BAM
    0000LTD - 0499LTD
    0001PPK - 1500PPK
    0026REP - 0219REP
    0001WLE - 0459WLE

    To facilitate the repair of these pistols, please contact Smith &
    Wesson's customer service department to receive instructions for the return of your pistol to Smith & Wesson. You will receive a UPS pre-paid billable stamp and shipping instructions to arrange for the modification of your pistol by calling Smith & Wesson directly at 1-800-331-0852. Smith & Wesson, will replace the existing hammer block feature with a new part at no cost to owners. The firearm will be returned and owners should note a punch dot which appears at the back of the frame. This marking is verification that the new hammer block has been installed and that your pistol is safe to handle.
    God, country, family.
