Umarex USA Inc., of Fort Smith, Ark., has recalled about 9,500 Browning Air Pistols. Under a variety of circumstances, the safety will not prevent the gun from firing. This poses a risk of serious injury to the user or bystanders. Umarex has received one report of the pistol discharging while the safety was engaged. No injuries have been reported. 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.
The pistols were sold at sporting goods stores and gun shops nationwide from July 2006 through February 2008 for about $180. Consumers should immediately stop using the air pistol, ensure it is unloaded and contact Umarex USA to receive instructions on returning the air pistol for a free repair. Umarex USA will engrave repaired pistols with a “P” on the left side of the receiver, forward of the plastic end cap. Until repaired, consumers should safely store the unloaded pistol in its open or uncocked state. For additional information, contact Umarex USA toll-free at (866) 503-3389 anytime, or visit its website at www.umarexusa.com.
