Bolt Action Rifles Savage Issues Recall on B.MAG Rifle Bolts Evan Brune August 25th, 2015 | More From Evan Brune Share0 Tweet Email Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+Owners of a Savage Arms B.MAG rifle in .17 WSM made before September 2015 can receive a free retrofit kit from the company, due to a fault discovered with the gun. Savage has discovered that the bolt on some B.MAG rifles is capable of inadvertently catching the safety release and sliding it forward into the firing position. There are no reports of accidents due to this fault, and Savage has developed a simple bolt handle and cap retrofit that is available to all owners of recalled rifles free of charge. Savage is advising B.MAG rifle owners to not fire their gun until the bolt has been retrofitted. A dedicated recall website is available here, and a hotline (844-784-3301) is open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. EST. Owners can identify their firearm through an online look-up tool at the bottom of the recall website, file a claim, and receive a free retrofit kit, which includes simple instructions for replacing the bolt handle and cap. No other Savage firearms are affected by this condition. Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+ Share0 Tweet Email Load Comments ( ) Don’t forget to sign up!
