Hey everyone, I received an email today with information about a barrel recall. I will post the body of the email below.
To our Valued Customers:
It has come to our attention that the Brownells barrel you recently purchased may have a defect. When drilling the gas port, there is a possibility that the drill contacted the opposite side of the interior of the barrel. Your barrel may have a slight blemish or show signs of contact in the rifling opposite the gas port. If this is evident on your barrel, or you are not certain and would like an exchange, please contact Brownells. The defect is not a safety issue, but may lead to suboptimal accuracy and is not to our standards.
