Maverick Arms recall

Maverick Hunter™ O/U Recall

Maverick Arms, Inc. Product Safety Warning and Recall Notice

Description of Issue

Maverick Arms has discovered that a small number of Maverick Hunter™ Over/Under 12-gauge shotguns (SKU 75445) have been marked incorrectly. The chamber marking indicates that these shotguns are chambered for 3 ½” shells, however, the chambers are manufactured for 2 ¾” and 3” shells.
All Maverick Hunter™ shotguns are manufactured with 3” chambers, not 3 ½” chambers. Firing 3 ½” shot shells through these shotguns may cause an increase in chamber pressure, which may result in damage to your shotgun and/or severe personal injury if a barrel should rupture as a result of excess pressure.

How to Determine if Your Maverick Over/Under is Affected

Each Maverick Hunter™ shotgun is marked with a chamber designation on the right side of the barrel, just below the safety warning. If your shotgun marking reads “12 Ga 3 ½” Maverick Hunter” then your shotgun IS affected by this recall.
Discontinue use of this shotgun and immediately follow the instructions provided below.
Note that only a small number of SKU 75445 shotguns are affected. No other Maverick or Mossberg models are affected by this Safety Warning or Recall Notice.

What to Do If Your Shotgun is Affected

DO NOT fire 3 ½” shot shells through your Maverick Hunter™ Over/Under shotgun.
Please call the Product Service Center at (800) 363-3555 between the hours of 8:00 AM – 4:30PM EST or email us at [email protected] to confirm that your shotgun is covered by this recall.
If your shotgun is covered by this recall, Maverick Arms will provide a prepaid shipping label for your current shotgun, for return to an authorized Maverick Service Center.=
Once we receive your shotgun, Maverick will provide a free replacement shotgun of the same model and type (SKU 75445).
If you have already sold or otherwise disposed of your Maverick Hunter shotgun, we request that you immediately provide us with the contact information of the purchaser so that we may contact them directly and provide information about this recall.

S&W Bad news

Smith & Wesson lays off 180 temporary employees

Smith and Wesson has more than 1,700 full-time employees

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Smith & Wesson is the largest manufacturing employer in the City of Springfield.
 
Vice President of Investor Relations Elizabeth Sharp confirmed for us that the company laid off 180 temporary employees earlier this week.
Sharp told 22News all of those employees had worked at their Springfield headquarters.
As for the reason behind the layoffs, she said they had to “adjust their production levels” to meet business requirements. That would seem to indicate they are making and selling fewer firearms.
Sharp sent 22News a statement that reads, in part, “While this difficult decision unfortunately impacts our temporary personnel, it allows us to avoid employee layoffs.”
Smith and Wesson has more than 1,700 full-time employees according to their annual report.

Bid on One of 13 Limited Edition Desert Eagles to Benefit the Foundation of Fallen Benghazi Hero Glen ‘Bub’ Doherty

Bid on One of 13 Limited Edition Desert Eagles to Benefit the Foundation of Fallen Benghazi Hero Glen ‘Bub’ Doherty

Bid on this limited edition Desert Eagle to benefit the Glen “Bub” Doherty Foundation.

 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here’s your chance to participate in something truly special. Right now on GunsAmerica you can bid on one of 13 limited edition Desert Eagles to benefit the Glen “Bub” Doherty Foundation.
Glen, or as he was known by close friends and family “Bub,” Doherty was one of four Americans killed during the 2012 Benghazi attack. A former Navy SEAL sniper and combat medic, Doherty served in both Iraq and Afghanistan in the Global War on Terror.
The auction on GunsAmerica is part of a larger effort to support veterans spearheaded by Magnum Research, a subsidiary of Kahr Firearms Group and manufacturer of the iconic Desert Eagle, and author John “Tig” Tiegen.

***CLICK HERE TO BID NOW***

Tiegen co-wrote the book,“13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi.” In keeping with the theme of the book, Magnum Research and Tiegen decided to auction off 13 limited edition “13 Hours” Desert Eagles.
All the proceeds from each gun are being donated to different veterans charities across the U.S. (See the complete list of charities below). The one up for auction on GunsAmerica is numbered “4 of 13.” We’re calling it Bub’s Desert Eagle because the money raised will go to his foundation.

This side of the grip shows the logo of the Beyond The Battlefield The Tiegen Foundation.

This side of the grip has the logo for the Glen Doherty Foundation.

Like the rest of the “13 Hours” Desert Eagles, Bub’s Desert Eagle is chambered in .50 AE, sports a Kryptek Typhon pattern and is engraved with Tiegen’s logo and signature.
The grip of the gun features a Beyond the Battlefield Logo on one side, which is Tiegen’s personal foundation, and the Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation logo on the other side.
The auction is now live and runs until Veterans Day. Bub’s sister Kate specifically chose Veterans Day to honor Bub and every other hero who made the ultimate price serving our country.

I found this article about Revolver Myths

Top Five Revolver Myths

Editor’s Note: The following is a post by Mark Kakkuri, a nationally published freelance writer who covers guns and gear, 2nd Amendment issues and the outdoors. His writing and photography have appeared in many firearms-related publications, including the USCCA’s Concealed Carry Magazine. You can follow him on Twitter @markkakkuri.

We love the Internet because it is chock full of useful information. But we also hate the Internet because it is chock full of misinformation.
As you know, information about firearms abounds on the Internet and while there are many very good websites with well-informed writers who do the gun community a great service, there are just as many who are not helpful at all. Whatever the reasons for myths about firearms starting and spreading, I hope to do my part to clear up some of that confusion even if just a little bit at a time. Today, I’m going to take a crack at some of the myths I’ve heard surrounding the use of a revolver. These aren’t the only myths, but they’re my top five.

1. Revolvers Never Jam

Well, using the word “never” might be the first clue that this statement is a myth. It would be more accurate to say revolvers rarely jam — as long as we are defining what is meant by “jam.” By design, a revolver’s operation is fairly simple, at least compared to an auto-loading, semi-automatic pistol. With a revolver, you squeeze the trigger, which rotates the cylinder, aligning a cartridge in front of the hammer and behind the barrel. And, just at the right time, bang. Usually, if a round doesn’t fire, you would just squeeze the trigger again, starting the whole operation over, in order to fire the next round. The typical “jam” that could happen with a revolver is that some sort of dirt or debris gets lodged between the cylinder and the frame, stopping the cylinder from rotating and therefore not allowing the trigger to go through its full cycle to fire. Again, no one should say this never happens. It has and it does. But it is very rare.

2. Revolvers Are Inaccurate

Usually, when people make this assertion, it is about a snub-nosed or shorter-barreled revolver. The logic goes like this: The shorter the barrel, the less accurate the gun. And while it is theoretically true that the more barrel you have interacting with a bullet, the more accurate you can be, it does not necessarily mean that a short-barreled gun is inaccurate. It might be less accurate than a longer barreled gun, but other factors that determine accuracy are at work, regardless of barrel length. The key to better accuracy is better muzzle control — keeping the muzzle pointed at your target while squeezing the trigger. If you want a good demonstration of this — following all the gun safety rules, please — put a laser aiming system on whatever gun you’re shooting and watch how much the laser jumps around your target as you’re pulling the trigger. Oh, and one more thing: Google “Jerry Miculek 200-yard snub-nosed revolver shot upside down.” Granted, he’s a pro, but shoot a revolver from a rest in order to eliminate as much muzzle movement as possible and you might be surprised at how accurate the gun actually is.

3. Revolvers Are Difficult to Shoot

Some revolvers, by design, require a bit more hand and finger strength in order to squeeze the trigger, which usually is a longer stroke than the one experienced on a semi-automatic pistol. That doesn’t mean revolvers are more difficult to shoot; in fact, after getting used to them, some say they’re easy to shoot. It just means that some guns, revolvers included, require hand strength and practice in order to master. Another factor that might contribute to revolvers seemingly being more difficult to shoot is that people might only experience small, lightweight revolvers shooting medium to big rounds. Here, basic physics works against them. Small guns shooting big rounds equals big recoil. And big recoil can be difficult and intimidating. And it can hurt. Again, practice and training are your friends. And, for the record, it is possible to train up to shooting .38 Special +p or .357 Magnum rounds out of a lightweight snub-nosed revolver and be able to do it well. And even enjoy it.

4. Revolvers Are Underpowered or Too Low-Capacity

The typical self-defense revolver is a snub-nosed .38 Special with a capacity of five rounds. Some people scoff at the caliber; .38 Special is “the bottom of the effective self-defense cartridges,” they say. Some people scoff at the capacity — “five to stay alive” just isn’t enough, especially when you can easily carry twice or three times that amount in one magazine of another kind of gun. But the most effective self-defense handgun is the one you shoot well and will actually carry. If that’s a five-shot revolver, even a five-shot revolver chambered in .22 LR, then so be it. Better to have five rounds of .22 LR you can shoot well than 15 rounds of 9mm you leave at home. Regardless of what you carry, make sure you carry a reload. For revolvers, this means carrying a speed strip, a speedloader or moon clips — anything that will speed up replacing the empty cartridges with fresh ones.

5. Revolvers Are Outdated or Ineffective

Revolvers might have an old-school stigma: They’re the guns of old-time detectives and Old West shootouts. But there are many manufacturers making revolvers today and we keep seeing new models released each year, and that’s because people want them and buy them for concealed carry. So, revolvers might be a long-standing, long-history kind of gun, but to say they’re outdated is completely inaccurate. And just because there are hundreds of very good semiautomatic pistols available today — guns that are smaller, lighter and offer higher capacities than revolvers — doesn’t mean revolvers are ineffective. The key with any gun is practice, practice, practice. And remember, the “best” gun is the gun you shoot well and actually carry with you. Some people don’t shoot revolvers well or don’t like the trigger. Some do! Different strokes for different folks!
