Reason for Recall- Cracked Barrels
Smith & Wesson has received two field reports of cracked barrels involving the M&P12 Shotgun. To ensure that all of our Shotguns meet Smith & Wesson’s high standards for quality, we are implementing this Safety Recall of all Shotguns manufactured prior to October 15, 2021, to ensure there are no barrel anomalies or conditions that might adversely affect the safety, function or performance of these Shotguns.
What To Do
If you have affected Shotguns in your inventory, please call 833-957-3476 and we will coordinate the return of the affected firearms. The Shotguns will be expedited to our facility, repaired, and returned to you ASAP.
For those Shotguns which you have already sold, we ask that you provide us with the names, addresses, telephone numbers and e-mails of customers to whom you have sold them. Please send this information to us electronically at MPshotgunrecall@smith-wesson.com. If you do not have the capability to return the form electronically, please call 833-957-3476.
