Default Thompson Center Recall

FYI If you own one

IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL NOTICE - June 13, 2013

PRODUCT:


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
Icon Warlord Venture Weather Shield
Icon Field Venture Compact

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.

Outside the United States, click HERE for a list of Authorized Warranty Centers that will repair your rifle.

VERIFICATION OF CORRECTIVE ACTION:
When your rifle is returned, you should note a punch dot on the safety lever. See the photograph below. This punch dot is confirmation that your rifle has been inspected and the hazard has not been found or has been corrected.

CONSUMER CONTACT:
Instructions will be coming shortly on how to receive a FedEx pre-paid billable stamp for shipping your firearm back to us.
