The following posts contain a listing of firearm-related safety recalls extending back several decades. If you find any incorrect information, broken links, or know of additional safety recalls, please send a private message to pudly or post the relevant info in this thread. Please do not post new recalls here. Most people won't read every post in this thread and new recalls deserve their own discussion. Thanks.

Some manufacturers do not appear to maintain safety recall documentation on their web sites beyond a limited period of time. Since some unrepaired/replaced products may still be "in the wild", secondary information sources are used to document those recalls. Recalls documented via secondary sources and recalls that occurred before common use of the Internet are marked as: "Information not from the manufacturer".

PS- Is anyone an established member at firearmsid.com (firearm forensics)? They have a lot of older recall info that I'd like to tap into.

Wow. I'm not sure what kind of prize you get for that. :) Hopefully, they've been fixed.

I have two post-recall firearms. Fortunately, nothing directly affected.

You forgot one!

From Glock Pistols - Glock Pistol | Glock Talk - Index2

GLOCK - 2002 Frame Upgrade - Rear slide rail

The GLOCK Corporation has identified a problem with a very small percentage of GLOCK pistols produced between September of 2001 and May of 2002. The specific problem that has been identified is the potential of breaking a rear frame rail in pistols manufactured during this time period. Within the specific range the breakage rate has been less than 0.0188%. So, while the actual percentage of rails reported broken is within any accepted manufacturing tolerance, it is not an acceptable situation to the GLOCK Corporation. It is also important to note that under most conditions GLOCK pistols will continue to function with three rails. A routine maintenance check after each time the pistol has been taken out and used would immediately indicate if there is a problem.

We are, therefore, concerned that a limited number of customers will not get the product we have promised them and what we have always delivered, the very best pistol on the market, in short, a GLOCK.

For these reasons, we have made the decision that in the interest of customer service, replacement frames will be offered to anyone who has a firearm in this range and decides to take advantage of this offer. The replacement frames will have identical serial numbers to our customer's original firearm except the numeral 1 will be added as a prefix. If you believe your firearm is within this range, please call 1-866-225-4098 to take advantage of the ultimate in customer service.

Nothing less than the best for our customers is acceptable to GLOCK and, as always, we will continue to work towards Perfection.


It appears that only serial numbers starting with "E", "GSSF", or "USA" (American Hero’s Commemoratives) are affected. In general, the chronological serial number set that has the prefix letters of "EKA" through "EVR" inclusive appear to be the affected Glocks, regardless of caliber. Three letters precede three numbers on a plate forward of the trigger guard on the underside of the polymer frame. However, some aberrations to this generalization have been reported. Reports are that the affected Glocks were manufactured from September 2001 to May 2002. Unfortunately, Glock has not published a list.
