Walther has recalled the popular CCP firearm over concerns the gun may hold the potential to discharge regardless of the manual safety positioning.
The message from Walther reads:
Re: Important Safety Recall – MARCH 2017 Walther CCP Pistols
Walther Arms has identified a potential condition in Walther CCP pistols that could potentially cause it to discharge if dropped whether the manual safety is engaged (on) or disengaged (off). The safety of our customers is our paramount concern so we have voluntarily initiated this recall because of the possibility of a drop-fire occurring.
Please do not load or fire your Walther CCP pistol and contact us immediately to arrange to have your pistol upgraded free of charge.
If your pistol has already been upgraded, there will be a dot milled onto the back side of the magazine opening.
I unloaded my CCP yesterday, gave it a once-over, placing it in it’s case which fit perfectly inside a medium FedEX box. You can find the address and account information needed to send your CCP to Walther for repair after submitting your information to them [HERE]
Currently, you can expect your firearm returned approximately 4-6 weeks from the time it is received at Walther.
