Sturm, Ruger & Company has announced a recall of Ruger SR9 pistols that can fire if dropped.
According to the firearms manufacturer, whose main manufacturing plant is in Newport, N.H., the pistols were manufactured between October 2007 and April 2008. The company said that they can, under certain conditions, fire if dropped with their manual safeties in the “off” or “fire” position and a round in the chamber. The pistols will not fire if the manual safety is in the “on” or “safe” position.
The company said it is reworking the design of a new trigger group that prevents firing when dropped and will retrofit at no charge all Ruger SR9 pistols with serial number prefix “330.”
