AccuTec 10/22 Barrel Pusher Recall Notice

Hey guys, this is sort of a good news/bad news type of thing, so please bear with me.

The bad news. It came to my attention yesterday (Feb 11) that some of AccuTec’s 10/22 Barrel Pusher tools are failing when used to remove particularly tight or ‘stuck’ barrels. An investigation into the problem found that some guide rods had apparently not been heat treated to specifications at the factory and as a result, were too brittle. Thus, under heavy load they are snapping. Nothing dramatic happens, there is simply a little ‘click’ and the rod breaks/cracks where it is threaded into the bar.

Guy’s, I stand behind this product 100%. It comes with a no-nonsense, no-questions-asked lifetime warranty. This particular problem came out of left field – not a single prior production run had shown any signs of this. Under normal circumstances, this tool is virtually bullet proof.

The good news. So here’s where I put my money where my mouth is – If any member/viewer of rimfirecentral purchased one of these tools, return it to me (broken or not) and I will not only replace it with a brand new tool with proper guide rods – but will also include a Brownells gift certificate for $50.00. That means you basically end up with the tool for free. Anyone interested in taking advantage of this offer, please e-mail me at [email protected] and I will send you my mailing address.

For the rest of you guys, all effected tools are off the shelves and will be replaced in about 3 weeks with new ones. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused anyone.
