Published

on

We here at GGD have received this important recall notice for FN M249S rifles. Please find the company’s complete instructions reproduced in full below!

FN America, LLC announces the mandatory recall of all FN M249S semi-automatic, belt-fed rifles sold before January 1, 2022. An identified issue from a component in the FN M249S fire control group may adversely affect the rifle’s standard operation, and under certain circumstances, a reset failure within the hammer group may cause an unsafe firing event. To correct this condition and restore consistent and safe operation of the firearm’s fire control group, it is necessary for FN to replace specific components in all FN M249S rifles.

FN is instructing customers to discontinue use of these rifles immediately and return affected products to FN directly for installation of new components, at no expense to its owner.
