Umarex USA Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) havevoluntarily recalled about 9,500 Browning air pistols for serious injury risks the product poses. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on August 16, 2011.
The product recall was issued after discovering that under an array of circumstances, the safety will not stop the gun from firing, which poses a serious injury risk to the user and bystanders.
“This recall involves all Browning 800 Mag Air pistols, which are black and measure 18 inches by 7 inches. The Browning logo and ‘800 Mag’ are printed on the top of the air pistol’s barrel block,” reported the CPSC.
Consumers are advised to contact Umarex USA for instructions on how to return the air pistol for a free repair. Until the gun is repaired, consumers should store the unloaded firearm in its open or uncocked state.
