Remington has announced a voluntary recall of Model 887 shotguns manufactured from December 1, 2013 to November 24, 2014. Senior Remington engineers determined that some of those Model 887 shotguns could, under certain circumstances, unintentionally discharge.
The company has determined that some Model 887 shotguns manufactured between the aforementioned dates may exhibit a defect causing the firing pin to bind in the forward position within the bolt, which can result in an unintentional discharge when chambering a live round.
Remington has advised customers to immediately cease use of recalled shotguns and return them to Remington free of charge. The shotguns will be inspected, repaired, tested, and returned as soon as possible. Owners of the recalled shotguns should not attempt to diagnose or repair the shotguns themselves.
Remington has established a dedicated website and toll-free hotline to help consumers determine whether their Model 887 shotguns are subject to recall. Concerned parties can also call the company's Toll-Free Hotline (1-800-243-9700), which is available Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT.
