S&W Has Issued An M&P15-22 Consumer Safety Alert

Tuesday, June 11th, 2019

Smith & Wesson has issued a consumer safety alert on all M&P15-22 rifles and pistols manufactured before February 1st, 2019. S&W has discovered that some recently manufactured 15-22s feature a defect causing a lack of proper depth of the breech face counter bore. This defect can cause a closed bolt to crush the rim of a chambered .22 round, causing it to unintenionally fire, cycling the bolt, and potentially causing multiple discharges without depressing the trigger.

S&W is providing a free bolt inspection gauge which can be ordered by consumers to determine whether their 15-22 is within manufacturer specifications. Alternatively, S&W is also offering consumers the option to send their bolt in for a free inspection, and replacement if necessary.

Since the 15-22 is a pretty popular and affordable plinker, there’s a chance at least a few of you own one, so if that is the case, get it checked out.

S&W Governor

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

Billed as “The revolver of choice. Literally.”, the Smith and Wesson Governor is a six-chamber revolver that can chamber rounds in 3 different calibers. Specifically .410 shotshell, .45 Colt, and .45 ACP. The overall length is 8.5 inches with a 2.5 inch barrel and the total weight is 29.6 ounces. In addition, it feature a synthetic grip and a dovetailed Tritium forward night sight. The model shown above also includes the optional Crimson Trace laser grip, for improved target acquisition. Revolvers are reliable sidearms, and it’s a real treat to see one with such diverse chambering options. Still, it makes you wonder if shotshell capable revolvers are simply a fad, or are they here to stay?
