Thompson Center Recall
FYI If you own one
IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL NOTICE - June 13, 2013
ALL Thompson/Center Arms ICON®, VENTURE® and DIMENSION™ rifles manufactured before June 13, 2013.
DESCRIPTION OF THE HAZARD:
Thompson/Center Arms has identified a condition where the safety lever in certain rifles may bind preventing the safety from becoming fully engaged. In this situation, closing the bolt may move the safety to the fire position. The rifle will not fire unless the trigger is pulled. However, out of an abundance of caution, we are initiating this recall to allow for the prompt inspection and, if necessary, the repair of each rifle.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PRODUCT INVOLVED:
This recall applies to all ICON, VENTURE and DIMENSION rifles manufactured before June 13, 2013. The following is a list of affected models:
Icon Venture Dimension
Icon Classic Venture Predator
Icon Weather Shield Venture Infinity
Icon Precision Hunter Venture Dream Season

REMEDY/ACTION TO BE TAKEN:
STOP USING YOUR RIFLE.
To remedy this condition, your rifle will be inspected and if necessary repaired at no cost to you. Your firearm will be returned as quickly and efficiently as possible. All shipping and repair costs will be covered by Thompson/Center Arms.
Even in the recall condition, the rifle will not fire unless the trigger is pulled. Therefore, always follow these basic firearm safety rules:
Keep your chamber unloaded until you are ready to shoot.
Always keep your firearm pointed in a safe direction.
Never place your finger on the trigger until you have made a conscious decision to fire your rifle.

VERIFICATION OF CORRECTIVE ACTION:
