Remington Model 887 shotgun – recall
The following notice has been issued by the manufacturer:
Notification of Product Safety Issue: Recall and Replacement Programme
Remington Model 887™
Remington has determined that in some Remington Model 887™ shotguns manufactured between December 1, 2013 and November 24, 2014 the firing pin may bind in the forward position within the bolt, which can result in an unintentional discharge when chambering a live round. This may occur when the safety mechanism is on. Any unintentional discharge has the potential to cause injury or death. Therefore, Remington is voluntarily recalling ALL potentially affected products to inspect and repair.
If your shotgun was manufactured in the aforementioned time period, you should stop using your shotgun immediately due to the risk of unintentional discharge. Click to determine if your Model 887™ shotgun is affected (opens in a new window) by this recall.
Remington will manufacture and ship new bolts internationally, and will obtain the necessary export and import licenses.
For updates concerning the replacement programme, please check back on this website [the links on this page] or contact your country’s Remington distributor. Distributors’ contact details are available on the recall notice (opens in a new window). We will provide updates as soon as additional information and replacement programme details become available.
We appreciate your patience as we work through this issue. Remington is committed to the quality and safety of its products and we deeply apologise for this inconvenience.
Please remember to stop using your shotgun until a replacement bolt has been installed.
