A safety warning and mandatory Sig Sauer recall has been issued for several rifles from the manufacturer.

Sig announced Friday that a limited number of rifles in the SIG716 DMR, SIG516 Carbon Fiber and SIGM400 Predator models are affected.

The problem revolves around the two-stage trigger, which Sig says may have an improperly heat-treated hammer.

“Over time this could result in a trigger malfunction creating a significant safety hazard,” the company’s release says. “Sig Sauer is issuing a mandatory recall to replace the hammer and trigger assembly in these specific rifles.”

According to Sig, the firearms affected by the recall can be identified by the presence of a SIG mark etched into the hammer (see photo above).

The recall does not affect any military or law enforcement rifles or any Sig MCX or MPX products.
