Walther PK380 pistolWalther Arms
FORT SMITH, AR –– (Ammoland.com) – During an internal quality check, Carl Walther GmbH identified a condition that can occur with certain PK380 pistols and that may allow a cartridge to be unloaded when the trigger is pulled, despite manual safety is activated.
Walther has determined that turning on the manual safety cannot prevent a chamber from firing when the trigger is pulled.
This recall applies to Walther PK380, .380 ACP pistols from Carl Walther GmbH from May to September 2012 with a serial number range from PK101201 to PK112155.
Stop using your pistol and get it back to WALTHERAMERICA immediately.
Any unintentional discharge of a weapon can lead to injuries. We request that you cease using your pistol until we have a chance to review it to ensure that there is no condition that would allow the pistol to discharge with the safety activated.
To facilitate the inspection and repair of your pistol, if necessary, contact Waltheramerica’s customer service department at 1-800-713-0356 for instructions and a number to return your pistol to Waltheramerica.
