    Ruger Issues Safety Bulletin For Ruger Precision Rifle

    Ruger has issued a safety bulletin for Ruger Precision Rifles in a specified serial number range.
    Please note that this is NOT a recall, but a safety bulletin that only affects SOME Ruger Precision Rifles. Rifles that have a polymer bolt shroud are not affected by the safety bulletin and do not exhibit the same issues as the aluminum shroud equipped rifles.

    If you own a Ruger Precision Rifle that falls into the serial number range of 1800-26274 to 1800-78345 or 1801-00506 to 1801-30461 regardless of what the rifle is chambered in, it may exhibit the symptoms that prompted the safety bulletin.

    "Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR) has issued a Safety Bulletin for certain Ruger Precision Rifles. Ruger recently learned that some Ruger Precision Rifles may experience interference between the aluminum bolt shroud and the cocking piece (also known as the firing pin back). In rare instances, the interference can disrupt the firing mechanism and cause it to not function properly. This interference can potentially lead to light primer strikes or, in extreme cases, the rifle may not fire when the trigger is pulled. If the rifle fails to fire when the trigger is pulled, it may fire when the bolt handle is subsequently lifted. In rifles where this condition exists, the issue often resolves itself as the parts wear and the interference is reduced. Therefore, rifles that have fired more than 100 rounds with no issues or concerns are unlikely to be affected, and no additional action is necessary...."

    Well that was a rush of paranoia I didn't need on a Sunday morning. Glad mine falls outside those serial numbers.
