SIG Sauer issued a mandatory recall notice and safety warning Friday for certain rifles from the SIG716 DMR, SIG516 Carbon Fiber and SIGM400 Predator lineup.
The problem appears to be with the two-stage trigger that may have an “improperly heat-treated hammer” that could result in a “trigger malfunction creating a significant safety hazard,” according to the New Hampshire-based manufacturer.
SIG will replace the hammer and trigger assembly free of charge. To see if your rifle is included in the recall, click on this link.

SIG warns that if you are affected by this recall, stop using the firearm immediately and follow the instructions on the website or call SIG Sauer Customer Service at 603-610-3000, option 1. Make sure to have the serial number of the firearm available.
