Here's the info regarding revolvers. More than likely won't happen.
That WAS true. SIG did not issue a recall but did provide for a "voluntary" free fix. All you had to do was phone them for a prepaid return label, send the gun to them and they replaced parts to make it truly drop safe. Hubby had two P320's and sent both of them back.
Supposedly the newer ones, manufactured after the drop/fire was known, have had new parts and are drop safe.
Other manufacturers have had recalls of various gun models over the years - specifically for safety issues. it is not unknown. What is important is WHEN the incidents happened and IF the manufacturer paid shipping to and from and actually fixed the guns involved.
If I were going to buy a P320 I would check to make sure it was either manufactured after they made the changes at the factory OR was returned and the parts to fix the problem had been installed.
Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!
Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.
Sig addressed the problem, how about all other manufacturers along with each of their older and newer models? There are certainly a lot of manufacturers of guns in the world and so many models of semi-auto weapons in all different sizes and calibers that it's mind numbing. Do you think they've all gone through a rigorous drop test from every angle and position? If it got past a mega manufacturer like Sig Sauer, what other manufacture or model gun might have the possibility of it going off when dropped? Taurus? That was shown in the other video and it was dropped at the same place as the Sig. How many others out there?
Revolvers seem immune, especially when made after a certain year which goes back fairly far. The bottom line is, be cautious with all guns when handling. And DON'T drop them on a hard surface.
Suddenly my Springfield models in .45 and .40 seem more appealing even though I didn't initially take to the grip safety. Then again, I don't ever remember dropping a gun that was loaded in 40 years. And NEVER in a public restroom.
