Safety Recall Notice: SIG SAUER Cross Bolt-Action Rifles

SIG Sauer Cross Rifle trigger safety recall defect notice

If you have a SIG Sauer Cross rifle — do NOT shoot it. There is a serious potential safety issue that could result in an accidental discharge. Accordingly, yesterday, 11/25/2020, SIG Sauer issued this Safety Recall Notice for ALL Cross rifles that have been produced:

Safety Recall Notice: SIG SAUER Cross Bolt-Action Rifles

NEWINGTON, N.H.: (November 25, 2020) – Today Sig Sauer, Inc. is announcing a safety recall for the CROSS Bolt-Action Rifle, and consumers should immediately discontinue use of the rifle. This recall applies to all CROSS Bolt-Action rifles currently manufactured.

Sig Sauer has viewed an online video that presents a single CROSS Bolt-Action Rifle with a potential safety concern. This gun has been returned to Sig Sauer and upon evaluation it has been confirmed that the rifle exhibited a delayed discharge after the trigger was pulled. Sig Sauer has decided to issue a safety recall in order to implement a modification to the firing action to address this potential safety concern.

Q: WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU OWN A CROSS BOLT-ACTION RIFLE?

A: Stop using and unload your CROSS Rifle immediately.

To register for the recall process please visit sigsauer.com/crossrecall or call Sig Sauer Customer Service at 603-610-3000, option 1. Following registration Sig Sauer will further communicate with you to arrange for the return of your rifle to Sig Sauer for the safety improvement. All shipment and replacement costs will be covered by Sig Sauer.

Sig Sauer is committed to providing the highest quality, industry-leading firearms in the marketplace and is requesting that consumers take immediate action and follow the recall process as described.

Trigger Problem Revealed in Field Test Video

In this video a SIG Cross rifle is being tested in the field. The shooter started to encounter problems with delayed ignition at 26:05 time-mark. Basically the gun did NOT fire when the trigger was engaged normally. In another instance (28:10-28:30) the gun did not fire as the trigger was pulled back but then the gun fired when the trigger was released forward. Not good.
