    Not sure if people were aware - I just saw it today looking for something else

    ALL Thompson Center Venture Rifles manufactured prior to October 28, 2011.

    DESCRIPTION OF THE HAZARD:
    During an internal technical review, Smith & Wesson identified a condition that may exist with the sear supplied with some rifles that would allow the rifle to fire without the trigger being pulled. In the interest of consumer safety, we are initiating this recall to allow for the prompt inspection and, if necessary, the repair of each rifle.

    DESCRIPTION OF THE PRODUCT INVOLVED:
    This broadens the recall announced by Smith & Wesson on November 8, 2011. This recall applies to ALL Venture rifles manufactured prior to October 28, 2011. To determine if your rifle is affected, please reference the serial number list located at the link below or by calling Smith & Wesson directly at 1-800-713-0356. If your serial number does not fall within the list of affected serial numbers, your rifle is not part of this recall.

    Yeah. I had to send mine back. Great customer service, they send you a pre-paid mailing label and I got mine back in a little over a week, problem solved.
