Their recall notice web page sucks. It says, on the one hand: "ALL models of M&P15-22 rifles and pistols manufactured before February 1, 2019." Then it turns around and says, elsewhere: "If you encounter an M&P15-22 with no box and want to know whether the firearm requires bolt inspection - go toMP15-22SafetyAlert.comand use the Serial NumberLookup that is present." I do that and get back "The serial number that you entered is not valid for this Consumer Safety Alert"

FWIW: It looks like if you have a 7-character serial number, you might not be affected. I reached that conclusion based on the fact that my 7-character serial number came up with the response it did and that the M&P 15-22 Bolt Inspection Gauge order form requires an 8-character serial number.

I guess I'll call them and (probably) sit on hold.

Thanks for the heads up, Dzozer!

ETA: Confirmed via phone call. Agent: "Yes, the ones we're looking for have 8-character serial numbers."


Thanks. That explains why my serial number kept getting rejected. It's a 7 digit serial.

I received my gauge today. It tested fine so we went shooting. Still shooting flawlessly.

Fascinating, given what the CSR to whom I spoke said. Let us know what they say when you call, please?

Thanks for the heads-up!

Just ordered the bolt inspection gauge.

I’ve been waiting on the guage for a couple months.

Another forum states the gauge is .036”. Going to measure it myself now.

I've waited for the gauge for several weeks. Finally gave up and used a feeler gauge and straightedge and it seemed good.

Shot it and sighted it in so the grandkids can get on paper. Works great.

Did Remington buy S&W? Big Grin
