About 2,400 Break-Barrel Air Rifles have been recalled by Soft Air USA, of Grapevine, Texas. The air gun can discharge while the safety is engaged, posing a risk of injury to consumers and those nearby. The recalled product is a Swiss Arms break-barrel, single-shot air rifle. The rifle is 34 inches long with a black barrel. It has a wood stock with checkering etched on the grip and forend and a rubber recoil pad on the butt. It has a metal fixed front sight, a fold-down rear sight and a receiver for mounting optics. The rifle comes with a 4×32 millimeter scope. “XT32” and “Cal.4.5/.177” are on the left side of the barrel hinge plate.
The rifle is cocked by swinging the barrel down on its hinge to “break” the gun open for loading, then swinging the barrel back up into firing position. Model number “288719” is located on the barrel near the rear sight. Soft Air reports no incidents and no injuries. The rifles were sold exclusively at Sports Authority in December 2012 for $100.
Consumers should return recalled Swiss Arms air rifles to Sports Authority for a full refund.
