Honor Defense this week announced a voluntary upgrade for its popular Honor Guard pistol following concerns that the single-stack carry gun isn’t “drop safe.”
“Recent events indicate that handling an Honor Guard pistol beyond U.S.A. safety standards by dropping or striking the firearm with a hammer may cause an unintentional discharge,” said the Georgia-based company in a press release.
“As a result, Honor Defense has developed an upgrade to the Honor Guard striker assembly (within the slide),” it continued.
Current owners of Honor Guard pistols are encouraged to visit the website and follow the directions in the” Upgrade Section,” which will go live on Jan. 21, 2018.
Upon receiving a pistol, Honor Defense “will upgrade the slide” and “promptly return it to you.”
“This upgrade will provide increased drop performance beyond U.S.A safety standards and is available to all owners of an Honor Guard pistol,” says the company.
