Carl Walther GmbH has issued a recall of certain PK380 pistols because Walther has found that engagement of the manual safety may not prevent firing of a chambered round when the trigger is pulled.

The recall applies to Walther PK380 pistols manufactured between May 2012 and September 2012, with a serial number between PK101201 and PK112155.

If you own a Walther PK380 in this range, stop using your pistol and return it to Walther Arms immediately. To facilitate the inspection and repair, if necessary, of your pistol, please contact Walther Arm's customer service department at 1-800-713-0356 to receive instructions and a call tag for the return of your pistol to Walther Arms.
