TriggerTech Recalls Carbide Triggers Due to Cracking of Carbide Rollers
In keeping with TriggerTech’s commitment to safety we are conducting a voluntary recall in response to a condition we identified with triggers that utilized carbide rollers “Carbide Triggers.” This recall applies to all Carbide Triggers which were manufactured between June 5, 2015 and July 28, 2016.
In one recent case, a carbide roller cracked and remained intact in a Rem 700 Carbide Trigger for approximately 2,000 rounds. The cracked carbide roller caused accelerated and unusual wear. A gradual reduction in pull weight was observed and the trigger eventually got to the point where the rifle, with the safety off, could discharge without trigger activation. In TriggerTech’s spirit to always do the right thing TriggerTech is voluntarily recalling all Carbide Triggers.
This voluntary recall involves REM 700 Carbide Triggers, AR15 Carbide Triggers, and Excalibur, Mission, Killer Instinct and Parker Crossbow Carbide Triggers. Carbide Triggers can be identified by their serial number or date code. The serial number/date code can be found on the side of the Rem 700 triggers, and on the bottom of the AR15, Killer Instinct, Excalibur, Mission, and Parker triggers.
By the end of July 2016, TriggerTech transitioned to 100% stainless steel roller production in response to reports of cracking carbide rollers in crossbow triggers (these reports did not give cause for safety concerns). Stainless steel rollers are significantly stronger and more impact resistant than carbide rollers and TriggerTech has determined that stainless steel rollers will not exhibit the same potential cracking issue as carbide rollers.
TriggerTech will correct any and all potential conditions at no cost to the consumer as part of our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
