Default S&W M&P 15-22 Safety Alert

First and Foremost, I love my S&W M&P 15-22. With 1K rounds down the pipe, It is not experiencing any of the issues described in the Safety Alert but I ordered the Inspection Gauge free of charge.

Smith & Wesson has issued a consumer safety alert on all models of M&P 15-22 rifles and pistols manufactured prior to Feb. 1, 2019. If you have one of the firearms, immediately cease use until it has been inspected and, if necessary, the bolt replaced.

The company has identified two recently produced M&P 15-22s with their breech face counter-bore depth not within manufacturing specification. In those firearms, the lack of depth could allow the bolt, upon closing, to crush the rim of the case, causing the round to fire, cycling the bolt and potentially resulting in multiple discharges without depressing the trigger.
