Recommended Posts

A safety warning and mandatory Sig Sauer recall has been issued for several rifles from the manufacturer.


Sig announced Friday that a limited number of rifles in the SIG716 DMR, SIG516 Carbon Fiber and SIGM400 Predator models are affected.

The problem revolves around the two-stage trigger, which Sig says may have an improperly heat-treated hammer.


“Over time this could result in a trigger malfunction creating a significant safety hazard,” the company’s release says. “Sig Sauer is issuing a mandatory recall to replace the hammer and trigger assembly in these specific rifles.”


According to Sig, the firearms affected by the recall can be identified by the presence of a SIG mark etched into the hammer (see photo above).


The recall does not affect any military or law enforcement rifles or any Sig MCX or MPX products.

As expected, Sig says it will correct any affected firearms at no cost to the customer.


To determine if a specific firearm is affected by the recall, please go to SigSauer.com/support/safety-center/rifle-safety-warning. From there, utilize the serial number identifier and visual inspection instructions.


“If you are a customer who is affected by the recall, stop using the firearm immediately and follow the instructions on the website or call Sig Sauer Customer Service by dialing 603-610-3000, option No. 1,” according the release. “Have the rifle’s serial number available.”
