Due to an unannounced change in the manufacturing process, some of the faux suppressor barrel-sleeved GSG-15 rifles may not meet minimum overall length requirements.

This applies only to the GSG-15 SD Semi-Auto .22LR calibre rifles with attached faux suppressor barrel sleeves (Cabela’s article #275424 or Bass Pro article #2911678), purchased between July 1, 2020 and November 10, 2020. All other GSG-15 models are unaffected.

Customers who have purchased this rifle are encouraged to contact GSG’s Product Service Centre at Blue Line Solutions to get their barrel sleeve exchanged for a correct one.

The RCMP has approved this procedure. The owners of applicable GSG-15s will not be affected, and all rifles will remain Non-Restricted, so long as the new barrel sleeves are installed in a timely manner.

WINCHESTER® Super-X 17 HMR 20 Grain Jacketed Hollow Point
WITH SYMBOL X17HMR1, Lot Numbers NB51 and NB61

Winchester® has initiated a voluntary recall of 17 HMR 20 Grain Jacketed Hollow Point rimfire ammunition, Symbol number X17MHR1, lot numbers NB51 and NB61

Winchester has determined the above lots of 17 HMR ammunition may contain no powder charges. Ammunition with no powder charges may result in a bullet remaining in the barrel (i.e., a bullet-in-bore obstruction). Firing a subsequent bullet into the bore obstruction could cause firearm damage, rendering the firearm inoperable and subjecting the shooter and bystanders to a risk of serious personal injury.

The ammunition Lot Number is stamped on the top of the 1000-round case and the outside of the 50-round plastic box as indicated here.

If it is Symbol X17HMR1 and the last four characters of the Lot Number are NB51 or NB61, immediately discontinue use and contact Winchester toll-free at 844-653-8358 for free UPS pick-up of the recalled ammunition.
