Not sure if this has been posted already. Sorry if it has.


Tippmann A-5 End Cap Recall
Tippmann Sports is issuing a voluntary recall of certain end cap assemblies on selected Tippmann® A-5® paintball markers. The markers affected by this recall have serial numbers between 0409301 and 0422200, and were sold by Tippmann Sports to dealers and distributors between May 23, 2008 and September 24, 2008. Tippmann Sports has determined that some of these end cap assemblies may present a safety issue under certain conditions because there is a potential for the end cap assembly to break and/or eject. As a result, Tippmann Sports is recalling and replacing all affected end cap assemblies from the marketplace.

Customers should stop selling the affected A-5 paintball markers immediately. In addition, consumers with A-5 markers with these serial numbers should stop using them immediately.

RETAILERS

Retailers should inspect their inventory and quarantine any A-5 markers of any configuration with a serial number in the range 0409301 to 0422200. The serial number is found on the back or side of the packaging. The serial number is also engraved on the left side of the marker near the front grip.
