PSA: TC Venture Safety Recall


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


TCA Venture Safety Recall - Smith & Wesson

DESCRIPTION OF THE HAZARD:

During an internal technical review, Smith & Wesson determined that some of the sears used on Venture rifles produced from August 1, 2011 to October 28, 2011, may not have been manufactured to specification. Because the sear is an important part of the firing mechanism, we are asking that all of the rifles produced during this time period be returned to Smith & Wesson so that the firearm can be inspected by our technicians to ensure that the rifle operates in a safe and appropriate manner.


If you go to the link above, there's a list of serial numbers of affected firearms, more information, etc.

Thanks, Shane -

We'll make this a "Sticky" so it doesn't fall out of sight.

my 2 TC ventures

Apart from the recall I have 2 such rifles. one a 7m m rem magnum blued and one .3006 stainless ; both are very accurate and less than 1 MOA with Winchester white box powerpoints ! They are grossly under rated and thus I can get them at dealer costs at close outs. The TC venture is very modern ; only fault is the single stack magazine with only 3 shots.
