Smith & Wesson has announced a recall of the Thompson/Center Venture rifles produced from August 1 to October 28, 2011 after it was determined they may not have been built to specification.

The company described the reason for the recall on its customer service page:

"During an internal technical review, Smith & Wesson determined that some of the sears used on Venture rifles produced from August 1, 2011 to October 28, 2011, may not have been manufactured to specification. Because the sear is an important part of the firing mechanism, we are asking that all of the rifles produced during this time period be returned to Smith & Wesson so that the firearm can be inspected by our technicians to ensure that the rifle operates in a safe and appropriate manner."
