Walther is recalling their CCP handgun (Review: Walther CCP) for a drop-safe issue, which may cause the firearm to discharge if it strikes a hard surface. The company’s not revealing the exact nature of the problem (we’re investigating). They’re estimating a three-week turnaround for repair. Here’s the official notice:
Walther Arms has identified a potential condition in Walther CCP pistols that could potentially cause it to discharge if dropped whether the manual safety is engaged (on) or disengaged (off). The safety of our customers is our paramount concern so we have voluntarily initiated this recall because of the possibility of a drop-fire occurring.
Please do not load or fire your Walther CCP pistol and contact us immediately to arrange to have your pistol upgraded free of charge.
If your pistol has already been upgraded, there will be a dot milled onto the back side of the magazine opening.
The upgrade will be done at no charge to you. For free shipping, please enter your information here, and complete the online form, making sure to include the serial number. After completion of the form a confirmation email will be sent including shipping information.
