TriggerTech is recalling 2,000 crossbow triggers, in addition to 2,000 sold in Canada, due to an injury hazard.

Rollers may crack and cause the bow to discharge without the user pressing the trigger.

RECALLED PRODUCT DETAILS

The affected items include the following carbide trigger models: Rem 700 Carbide Triggers, the AR15 Carbide Triggers, and the Excalibur, Mission, Killer Instinct, and Parker Crossbow Triggers. The triggers can be identified by the model number and corresponding serial number or date code. The serial number or date code is located on the side of the Rem 700 and AR15 models and on the bottom of the others.

For a full list of the affected serial numbers and date codes, see the official Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) release.

WHERE WERE THE PRODUCTS SOLD?

The triggers were sold at CanadaAmmo, Wyvern Creations, and other retailers across the U.S. as well as online at the official TriggerTech website from June 2015 until August 2016. They cost between $120 and $190.

WHAT SHOULD CONSUMERS DO?

To date, the company has gotten 16 reports of broker rollers, including one incident of a weapon discharging without the trigger being pressed. However, there have been no reports of injuries. Nevertheless, consumers are urged to stop using the affected triggers right away and to contact TriggerTech to receive a free replacement trigger or, if the trigger has been discontinued, a full refund.
