T/C Arms Issues Safety Recall Notice for Icon, Venture, and Dimension Rifles
(GunNews.com) — Thompson/Center Arms has identified a condition that may cause the safety lever on certain Icon, Venture and Dimension rifles to bind, preventing the safety from becoming fully engaged.
In this situation, closing the bolt may move the safety to the fire position. The rifle will not fire unless the trigger is pulled. However, out of an abundance of caution, the company is taking this action to recall the rifles so that the firearm can be inspected by our technicians to ensure that the safety lever functions as designed. This recall applies to all Icon, Venture and Dimension rifles manufactured by Thompson/Center Arms prior to June 13, 2013. STOP USING YOUR RIFLE AND RETURN IT TO THOMPSON/CENTER AT ONCE. Thompson/Center Arms asks that you stop using your rifle until the company has had an opportunity to inspect the safety lever to ensure its proper function. To facilitate the inspection and repair, if necessary, of your rifle safety lever, please contact Thompson/Center’s customer service department to receive instructions and a pre-paid shipping label for the return of your rifle to Thompson/Center. Thompson/Center will repair the rifle at no cost to you, and return it to you as quickly and efficiently as possible.
