Exclamation RECALL NOTICE: Walther CCP Being Recalled Due To Drop Safety Issues

Searched for it and didn't see this posted anywhere else, here.

Excerpt:
Quote:
Walther has issued a recall of the Walther CCP pistols because of what they call a potential condition in the CCP that can cause the firearm to discharge regardless of the manual safety being engaged or disengaged. Walther has issued a voluntary recall as a result and will be upgrading all affected CCPs in order to remove the risk of a drop-fire.


Walther asks CCP owners to not load or fire their CCP and contact them immediately to arrange for the upgrade to be done to your gun free of charge.

Site admins: You might want to post this where everybody, in every sub-forum, sees it, as I imagine not everybody tracks every sub-forum every day.

I just saw it on the Walther CCP Facebook page and Truth about Guns has posted about it...

I actually sent mine in to have some roll pins replaced, so mine is actually in the shop right now...

Sounds like what has been discussed here for quite some time. Wonder why there's no affected serial number list.....must mean every CCP is included? I am a bit concerned about sending anything into Ft Smith given their recent track record of not having parts and many of us waiting for months with absolutely no communication from them. Not a great confidence builder!

I had my CCP all cleaned up. I was going to take it tomorrow and trade it in on something that works. Now it's virtually worthless for 3-4 weeks (at the very least) until I get it back. It seems like every time I turn around something else snafu's with the CCP. Maybe the CCP and I simply aren't meant to be together?

As usual with Ft Smith there are no details available related to exact issue or even what the repair is. Umarex absolutely puts a gag on their people.....that is now extremely obvious from my numerous communications with them. The recall is total CCP population.....no serial number segmentation.

It's just "spin". All firearm recalls are "voluntary", both as to the issuance of a notice and as to its compliance by the consumer. There is no such thing as an "involuntary" recall of a gun.

Owner's need to check to see if their pistol has already had this "fix" made or you will have to pay for shipping. There is a small mark on the bottom of the mag well if your pistol has been screwed around with already.

It seems the drop safety change did skip around over a range of serial numbers and not just begin with a particular number. Or, perhaps this is just noise from those few consistent complainers while those in the know can be assured there are actually no problem pistols.....just problem owners. After all this is a Concealed Carry Pistol. How long ago did this surface????? Quite a long time ago. 1917

If there's any segmentation to the affected serial numbers Mark at Ft Smith is unaware of what they are.....I asked him directly and his response was that his understanding is that all CCP's are affected unless they have the indication on the mag well.

I hardly think Walther issued a recall of all CCPs without what they feel to be good cause.
