Ruger recently announced a recall of a select batch of their Ruger American Rimfire rifles. The batch they’ve recalled are rifles chambered in .22 Winchester Magnum (.22 WMR) as well as .17 Hornady Magnum (.17 HMR) that were manufactured from November 17, 2013 to January 8, 2014. They’ve also included a diagram showing which rifles are affected by the recall.

The rifles affected are missing a vent hole, according to Ruger, “the hole does not serve any function during normal operation of the rifle, but is a safety feature and may help vent gas in the event of a problem such as a ruptured case head or bore obstruction, for example. We want to recall the rifles and add the vent hole.”  If your Ruger American Rimfire rifle doesn’t have a vent hole on the left side of the chamber then you should send your rifle back to Ruger. All their contact info as well as more info on the recall can be found at Ruger.com

      I’m all for DIYing things, but I’ve never understood DIYing a solution when someone else is willing to pay for a professional to do it. :)
