What are the defects?

A design or manufacturing fault can lead to muzzle brake baffle contact where the projectile contacts the inside of the muzzle brake before exiting the barrel and can result in:

  1. Bullet fragments exiting from the side and/or rear of the muzzle brake at speed, and/or
  2. The bullet deviating unexpectedly from the point of aim.

What are the hazards?

If the bullet contacts the inside of the muzzle brake, bullet fragments may cause injury to bystanders, and/or the bullet may deviate from the point of aim and can pose a risk of serious injury or death to any personnel who may be downrange of the user.

What should consumers do?

Owners of a rifle fitted with an affected muzzle brake should immediately stop using the muzzle brake and remove it from the rifle. The rifle can continue to be used without the muzzle brake.

The muzzle brake can be returned directly to Lithgow Arms and a replacement muzzle brake will be provided free of charge. Alternatively, owners can seek a refund of the purchase price of the muzzle brake.

Replacement product is expected to be available between July and October 2022.
