Tippmann A-5 End Cap Recall

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.

Contact Tippmann Sports at (866) 841-3029 (260-749-6022, extension 3149 from outside the United States) or email [email protected] This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to arrange for free repair kits or to arrange a return of the inventory within the serial number range.

SERIAL NUMBERS OF AFFECTED MARKERS

This voluntary recall is only for A-5 paintball markers of any configuration within the serial number range 0409301 to 0422200. Serial numbers ending in an “R” have already been repaired and are not included in this recall.

CONSUMERS

Consumers should contact Tippmann Sports at (866) 841-3029 (260-749-6022, extension 3149 from outside the United States), go to Tippmann: A-5® Recall or send email to [email protected] This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to obtain a free repair kit. This kit will include a new end cap assembly. Please have the serial number of the product available.

Note: Not all end cap assemblies which look like this are involved in this recall. Check the marker serial number. Only markers with serial number 409301 – 422200 are involved in this recall.

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your efforts to help us resolve this issue.

Thank you for your understanding and assistance.

Tippmann Sports, LLC
