Update:
—Simple Bolt Handle and Cap Retrofit Available
—Firearms Purchased Before September 2015 May be Affected
—Serial Number Look-up Tool Available Online


Savage Arms has issued a recall notice on B.MAG rifle bolts (17 WSM) after discovering that the bolt on some B.MAG rifles may inadvertently catch the safety button and slide it forward into the “fire” position. Savage has received no reports of accidents due to this condition and has identified a simple bolt handle and cap retrofit, which is available free of charge.

To avoid possible unintentional discharge or injury, Savage Arms has asked that consumers not use their B.MAG rifle until the bolt has been retrofitted. The company has established a dedicated website (savagearms.com/recall/bmagbolt/) and hotline (844-784-3301, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. EDT) for consumers to identify the affected firearm using an online look-up tool, file a claim and receive a free retrofit kit. The kit includes simple, step-by-step instructions to replace the bolt handle and cap. Only B.MAG rifles purchased before September 2015 are included in this recall. No other Savage firearms are affected by this condition.
