    Recall on some S & W

    IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL NOTICE - February 20, 2009

    PRODUCT:
    Walther PPK and PPK/S pistols

    DESCRIPTION OF THE HAZARD:
    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.

    DESCRIPTION OF THE PRODUCT INVOLVED:
    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
    0000LTD - 0499LTD
    0001PPK - 1500PPK
    0000BAE - 9999BAE
    0000BAF - 9999BAF
    0001WLE - 0459WLE
    0000BAH - 9999BAH
    0000BAJ - 9999BAJ
    0000BAK - 9999BAK
    0026REP - 0219REP
    0000BAL - 5313BAL
    0000BAM - 1320BAM

    REMEDY/ACTION TO BE TAKEN:
    STOP USING YOUR PISTOL AND RETURN IT TO SMITH & WESSON AT ONCE.

    Any unintended discharge of a firearm has the potential for causing injury, and we ask that you stop using your pistol immediately.

    To facilitate the repair of your pistol, please contact Smith & Wesson's customer service department to receive instructions for the return of your pistol to Smith & Wesson.

    When you return your pistol to Smith & Wesson, we will replace the existing hammer block feature with a new part at no cost to you. Your firearm will be returned as quickly and efficiently as possible.
    VERIFICATION OF CORRECTIVE ACTION:
    When your pistol is returned, you should note a punch dot which appears at the back of the frame. See the photograph below.



    This marking is verification that the new hammer block has been installed and that your pistol is safe to handle.

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
