Barrett Firearms Manufacturing, Inc. has determined that Model 98B rifles can experience a safety issue if the rifle is dropped or subjected to a significant impact. This could lead to an accidental discharge. This condition can be easily corrected by factory replacement of the receiver safety latch.
If you currently own a Barrett Model 98B between Serial Number 98B00003 through 98B000775, do not attempt to operate or fire your rifle until it has been examined by our Service Department. Please go to www.barrettrifles.com/home/Recall/Recall_98B.aspx
for further information, or call Barrett Customer Service at 615-896-2938 between 8am-4pm CST. Tell our customer service representative that you are calling about the Model 98B safety recall.
Barrett Firearms will arrange to have your lower receiver returned to the factory and modified at no charge.
Barrett Firearms apologizes for this inconvenience and is dedicated to resolving the situation.
