Originally posted by ensigmatic: 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.

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