DANIEL DEFENSE ISSUES SAFETY NOTIFICATION REPLACEMENT CAMPAIGN ON CERTAIN DELTA 5 BOLT ASSEMBLIES.
Black Creek, Ga. – As part of Daniel Defense’s commitment to provide the highest level of quality and safety for its products, the company is issuing a Safety Notification Replacement Campaign related to a condition identified with the firing pin cross pin in DELTA 5 Bolt-Action Rifles manufactured before September 20, 2019. More specifically, the firing pin cross pin can break under normal usage.
Daniel Defense asks that consumers take the Safety Notification Replacement Campaign seriously and immediately check to see if their DELTA 5 Rifle falls under this Safety Notification Replacement Campaign. If a DELTA 5 Rifle falls under this Safety Notification Replacement Campaign, IMMEDIATELY DISCONTINUE USE OF THE DELTA 5 RIFLE, POINT THE DELTA 5 RIFLE IN A SAFE DIRECTION, ACTIVATE THE SAFETY SELECTOR LEVER, CHECK AND VERIFY THE DELTA 5 RIFLE IS UNLOADED AND THAT THE CHAMBER IS EMPTY, IF IT IS NOT, REMOVE ANY CHAMBERED ROUND, REMOVE THE MAGAZINE AND THE BOLT ASSEMBLY AND FOLLOW THE BOLT ASSEMBLY RETURN INSTRUCTIONS BELOW.
The firing pin cross pin is located within the DELTA 5 bolt assembly and holds the firing pin and cocking piece together in the striker assembly. The firing pin cross pin can break allowing the firing pin to move freely within the bolt assembly. Although Daniel Defense has not received any report of a freely moving firing pin causing an unintentional firing, it is possible that AN UNINTENTIONAL FIREARM DISCHARGE MAY OCCUR.
As a Company committed to the highest level of quality and safety, Daniel Defense will correct any and all potential conditions at no cost to the consumer as part of its 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
“The safety and satisfaction of our customers is of the utmost priority to us,” said Daniel Defense President/CEO Marty Daniel. “We are committed to doing everything we can to ensure that our products are as safe and reliable as possible. I want to reiterate that there will be no cost to the customers to ship their bolt assembly back to us. This is on us, and we always do what’s right for our customers.”
To determine if a DELTA 5 Rifle falls within the scope of this Safety Notification Replacement Campaign, Consumers should go to www.danieldefense.com/safety, and enter their DELTA 5 Rifle’s serial number into the search box. A message will indicate if the Safety Notification Replacement Campaign applies to their DELTA 5 Rifle. Consumers should follow the Corrective Action Process from the Safety Notification Replacement Campaign website to obtain a pre-paid, pre-addressed UPS shipping label and box. If a Consumer does not have access to the internet, Consumers can call (866) 554-GUNS for more information.
Daniel Defense only requires that the DELTA 5 bolt assembly be shipped to Daniel Defense for inspection and for any necessary corrective action. The Safety Notification Replacement Campaign website contains detailed instructions for removing the bolt assembly from the DELTA 5 receiver. Consumers should remove their bolt assembly from the DELTA 5 receiver by depressing the bolt stop lever and retracting the bolt assembly clear of the receiver. Consumers should send in only the bolt assembly using the pre-paid, pre-addressed UPS shipping label and box. Once the inspection is complete and any necessary corrective action is taken, the bolt assembly will be shipped back to the Consumer with provided tracking information.
