Defender Outdoors would like to advise our customers that Winchester Repeating Arms has recalled its XPR rifles because manipulation of the safety switch may cause movement in the trigger system that could result in unintended firing.
The company advises its customers not to load or shoot any XPR rifle until it has been returned to the company’s service center and received a retrofit.
A company statement said, “Failure to follow this warning may result in a risk of harm, including serious personal injury or death to you and others.” Further, the company said, “We have decided to replace certain trigger group parts at no charge. This will require that all XPR rifles are sent to our service facility for a retrofit. We respectfully require all owners to return their rifles for the retrofit.”
For more details on how to return your rifle for retrofitting, or if you are unsure if your rifle is included in the recall, or if you have any questions about this recall notice, call or e-mail the company with the contact information below:
