SIG SAUER Issues Safety Warning and Recall Notice on Rifles



Quote
Newington, NH -(Ammoland.com)- SIG SAUER, Inc. has determined that a limited number of rifles in the SIG716 DMR, SIG516 Carbon Fiber, and SIGM400 Predator models were built with a two-stage SIG SAUER trigger that may have an improperly heat-treated hammer.

Looks like their quality control has went to shit like MOST of em.
Politicians are like diapers, they should be changed often, and for the same reason.

There are two kinds of people in the world my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. YOU DIG.  " Blondie".

Well, any man that wouldnt cheat at cards for a poke, dont want one bad enough. " Gus".

I've been saying for a little while now that Sig isn't what it once was. Older Sig?  Fantastic gun. New?  Hard pass.

I just dont understand their business models I guess.

You take a company with a fantastic reputation and totally ruin it by cutting back on quality control to try and save a couple bucks.  :th_nuts:  .

A couple manufacturers have ALREADY gone down that road.  One in particular, that used to be a favorite revolver company of mine, are so bad now you cant seem to buy a new gun that works.  :facepalm:

I just dont get it.   :thinker:

My metal 229 and 226 Mastershop are solid.  But the amount of plastic on the new models is concerning.
