S&W Performance Center mdl 460 Safety Recall Notice.
I was just browsing through the S&W website and noticed they've issued a Safety Recall Notice for the Performance Center model 460 revolvers. While I don't personally own one, I believe a few of our members might - possibly moderators as well.
Be careful guys!
Here's the gist of it:
Safety Recall Notice
Smith & Wesson’s Performance Center Model 460 Revolvers
Description of The Hazard:
Smith & Wesson has received four (4) reports of barrel failures involving its Performance Center Model 460 revolvers. These barrels were manufactured by an outside supplier. Our investigation has revealed that the quality of steel in some of these barrels did not meet the performance requirements for these firearms and may have contributed to failure of the barrel.
You should stop using the revolver and return it immediately to Smith & Wesson so that your barrel can be inspected and replaced, if necessary.
Description of The Product Involved:
This recall applies to Performance Center Model 460 revolvers shipped by the Smith & Wesson Performance Center prior to September 18, 2006. This recall does NOT apply to Smith & Wesson standard production Model 460 revolvers. The affected revolvers can be identified by the following Serial Number Range:
EBD0001 - EBD0524
EBF0002 - EBF0251
LHZ0000 - LHZ0511
LLL0000 - LLL0702
LRR0001 - LRR0552
MMM0001 - MMM1809
XMC0001 - XMC0109
To determine if your firearm is part of this recall, please check your serial number which can be found on the yoke of your firearm ....
Remedy/Action to be Taken:
When the revolver is returned to Smith & Wesson, we will inspect and test each barrel to verify that it meets specification. If the barrel fails to meet specification, a new one will be provided and installed for you free of charge.
We have already begun the corrective action process on Performance Center Model 460 revolvers. To determine whether your revolver has been inspected, please do the following:
Keep the firearm pointed in a safe direction;
Open the cylinder and verify that the firearm is unloaded; and
Look for a "punch dot" in the yoke opening, just above the serial number, as shown below.
If this indicator is present, your revolver has already been inspected and no further action is required.
Please contact Smith & Wesson directly at 1-800-331-0852 ext. 3800, or through our web site at www.smith-wesson.com to arrange for the return of your revolver. All work will be done free of charge.
TO ARRANGE FOR THE INSPECTION OF YOUR REVOLVER AND THE REPLACEMENT OF YOUR BARREL, IF NECESSARY, CALL 1-800-331-0852 ext. 3800

Thanks Bud. I wasn't sure when the recall was originally posted by S&W, I just saw it lastnight. I know you and Chris are recoil junkies so I figured it anyone here needed to know, it'd be you guys.
