Winchester XPR Rifle Recall

By CTD Blogger published on December 11, 2015 in Consumer Information

** Important Winchester Repeating Arms Safety Notice and Recall **

In October 2015, Winchester issued a recall and important safety notice for Winchester XPR rifles.

XPR rifles have the potential to fire an unintended round when the safety switch is manipulated. During continuous product testing, Winchester found that moving the safety switch on the XPR rifle "may cause movement in the trigger system that could result in unintended firing of certain XPR rifles."

Winchester XPR

Winchester's XPR is offered in .270 and .30/06 with a 24-inch barrel and in .300 Win. Mag. and .338 Win. Mag. with a 26-inch barrel.

As such, Winchester is recalling all XPR rifles. Winchester is replacing certain trigger group parts in all Winchester XPR rifles free. Winchester requests all owners of XPR rifles send their rifles for retrofitting.

Winchester stresses:

WARNING: Do not load or shoot any XPR rifle until it has been returned to our service center and received a retrofit. Failure to follow this warning may result in a risk of harm, including serious personal injury or death to you and others.

To return your rifle to Winchester for work, contact them immediately with instructions
