I don't see it that way. They have had an issue reported, found a cause, and now are taking action to correct. Notice that this is for every 15-22 produced prior to last month.

This further increases my belief that nothing was wrong with the 15-22 at Appleseed. Had S&W found issues that allowed the rifle to fire OOB, then they would have taken corrective action.

The video said they would send a gauge free, or you could send the bolt in. I called them, and they wouldn't send the gauge. Sending me a return label in the mail to send my bolt in. No emails. O well. Better now than in the middle of summer.

Who ever gets one first please post the thickness measured with a micrometer
so we can just use a depth gauge. Easy enough to figure out what the depth should be but curious what the S&W gauge measures.

We have fired a lot of rounds through our 2 and never had a slam fire but Tuesday my wife's rifle fired when she took it off safety. Yes it was pointed down range. I had her fire 5 shots and put the safety on then move the safety to fire and fire 5 more. I emailed S&W about it. I will have to call them on Monday.

I slid a fired case onto the bolt face,under the extractor. The rim was a little bit above the bolt face. I don't know if that is normal, but I'm just going to go ahead and send the bolt back. Weather is to nasty to shoot anyway.

I've ordered the gauge to make sure, but took a digital caliper and measured the recess milled out of my bolt. It is a couple of thousands less than a rim of a .22LR. I'm believing they'll want mine back for repair/replacement.

I did the same... I read the alert and then called customer service for the gauge. They told me to go back to the alert and enter my serial number.

Don't bother calling for the gauge, they will only direct you to go here.

It's for certain later models .At least the repair will be simple just send S&W the bolt. I don't think this is really a big deal.

Bummer, I just got one yesterday the red/green dot promo and got to shoot it this evening, put a 100 rounds thru it without a hiccup.. Hour or so ago I ordered / backordered mags from Midway for $11.99 each.. I guess I'll input my serial # and get a gauge.. Thanks for the heads up cyphertext..

Actually, it is not for certain later models... It is for all M&P 15-22 manufactured before February of this year... so basically, every M&P 15-22 that has made before last month.
