General Discussion / Lyman Muzzle Loader Product Recall
« on: February 20, 2018, 03:15:51 PM »
Lyman Muzzle Loader Product Recall was emailed me from MidSouth
Hello Midsouth Shooters Customer,

Lyman Products Corp. (“Lyman”) is voluntarily recalling black powder rifles and pistols due to the
potential of separation in the breech plug. Lyman maintains a safety-first approach, so despite finding
only a few firearms affected and no reported injuries, we are offering a recall program to have the issue
corrected. Lyman regrets the inconvenience but remains committed to the safety of our customers.
475 Smith Street
Middletown, CT 06457
office: 860-632-2020
www.lymanproducts.com

Products:
This recall includes black powder rifles and pistols regardless of caliber (including Deerstalker, Great Plains, Great Plains Hunter, Trade Rifle, Plains Pistol, Black Powder Kits, and replacement barrels; excluding Percussion Left Hand Great Plains and Left Hand Great Plains Hunter models) manufactured from March 1, 2017 to December 22, 2017. Barrels with the serial number in the range of A595960–A599026 are subject to this recall.

 

   



Safety Warning:
Lyman has determined that some black powder rifles and pistols could, under certain circumstances, develop separation in the breech plug, which may pose a potential safety hazard. Please do not load or use any rifles or pistols subject to this recall.
How to Identify Rifles and Pistols Subject to the Recall:
Find the serial number where the barrel meets the tang, opposite of the lock. The serial number has the letter “A” followed by a series of 6 numbers.

Action to be Taken:
If the serial number is within the range of A595960–A599026, immediately discontinue any use of this product. Please contact the Lyman Customer Service Department by emailing customerservice@lymanproducts.com or by calling 800-225-9626 Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. EST. You will be asked to provide your contact information, serial number, and either the part number or model to process the return.
Anyone outside the U.S.A. who is in possession of a black powder rifle or pistol within the recall range should contact your local distributor immediately.

Shipping:
Upon receipt of the information provided to customer service, Lyman will send instructions and packaging to ship the product to Lyman for replacement at no cost to the customer. Lyman will provide a replacement barrel and tang with instructions or will replace the barrel and tang at Lyman and return the firearm. Please only return your rifle, pistol, or barrel and tang with the provided shipping tags and boxes

Sincerely,

Midsouth Shooters Supply

Questions/Suggestions / Photos that do not show...
« on: February 09, 2018, 09:34:46 AM »
This is just a note to say that Photos that are not showing up in previous post, are more than likely because the hosting site changed their third party hosting or the member has canceled the account.  Some have small pictures or broken links where the picture would have been. ::)

I use pay a yearly fee to use Photobucket to host all my pictures that were posted here.  They recently had a change of service, so before they quit allowing the third party hosting, I switched to a new free service.   :))

To prevent loss of the pictures, I went through every (those who know me here know there are thousands of pictures posted by me) where I had then posted and changed the addresses of each and every picture.  This was done to preserve and maintain the validity of the various post for the future.  Yes it was that important to me as one of the moderators here on 10mm-firearms! ;D

There are many photo hosting services out there, good luck as you choose for what they offer...
