Both the Ruger LCP and the Walther CCP have a recall alert. Please check your pistol's serial number to verify if it needs to be sent back to the factory for service.
In 2008, Ruger received a small number of reports from the field indicating that LCP® pistols could discharge when dropped onto a hard surface with a round in the chamber. Ruger is retrofitting all older LCP® Pistols. The retrofit involves installation of an upgraded hammer mechanism at no charge to the customer.
How to determine if your pistol needs the retrofit:
All LCP® pistols with serial number prefix "371" and higher (371-xxxxx) have been manufactured with the new hammer mechanism and are NOT affected by the recall and DO NOT need to be returned. If your LCP® has a serial number prefix "370," (see Figure 1) you will need to check the flat portion of the slot just behind and below the hammer for the diamond mark shown in Figure 2. LCPs marked with the diamond have had the new hammer mechanism installed and DO NOT need to be returned. If your LCP® has the "370" serial number prefix and DOES NOT HAVE the diamond mark, you should have your LCP® retrofitted with the upgraded hammer mechanism at no charge.
Walther Arms has identified a potential condition in Walther CCP pistols that could potentially cause it to discharge if dropped whether the manual safety is engaged (on) or disengaged (off). The safety of our customers is our paramount concern so we have voluntarily initiated this recall because of the possibility of a drop-fire occurring.
Please do not load or fire your Walther CCP pistol and contact us immediately to arrange to have your pistol upgraded free of charge.
If your pistol has already been upgraded, there will be a dot milled onto the back side of the magazine opening.
The upgrade will be done at no charge to you. For free shipping, please enter your information here, and complete the online form, making sure to include the serial number. After completion of the form a confirmation email will be sent including shipping information.
Please note: The serial number is located on the right side of the pistol (circled in red below)
