CHP guns recalled again
By Andrew McIntosh - Bee Staff Writer

Smith & Wesson is recalling and replacing thousands of ammunition magazines it delivered with the California Highway Patrol's new semi-automatic pistols after officers reported bullets were not properly loading into their weapon's firing chamber.

It marks the second time the CHP's new Smith & Wesson 4006 TSW pistols have been recalled this year. The recall affects more than 660 weapons distributed in the CHP's Inland division and was confirmed by spokeswoman Fran Clader, who emphasized that the problem did not put officers at risk and added the CHP maintains its confidence in the new weapons.

Smith & Wesson spokeswoman Elizabeth Sharp didn't return telephone messages or an e-mail seeking comments.

In March, the Springfield-based gun maker voluntarily recalled and replaced a defective metal catch on 3,000 new CHP guns it had already delivered. That move came after the part, known as a sear, failed during training shoots and rendered some weapons useless.

As I recall the CHP wanted SIG pistols, some tomfoolery resulted in the adoption and readoption of the S&W.

Politics as usual in CA.
