Sauer USA is recalling a specific barrel batch in 6.5x55 Swedish that is used in the SAUER 100 model. The barrels are being recalled as a precautionary measure. The rifles in question, identified based on their serial numbers, must not be used any longer and should be returned to SAUER USA in exchange for a new rifle. This batch of barrels in caliber 6.5x55 SE has shown that a progressive premature weakening of the barrel material may occur after a high volume of shots, which could lead to severe damage of the rifle and personal injury. The exchange is, of course, free of charge for customers.
You can check which rifles are affected by the recall by plugging in the serial number of your rifle at this Sauer Recall link.
Those affected can also reach out to Sauer USA at [email protected] or (210) 377-2527 ext. 243 if they have any questions. For Canada residents, please contact The Gravel Agency Inc. at [email protected].
