Gun maker Walther Arms issued a recall for CCP pistols for issues regarding the gun’s manual safety.

According to the announcement, the safety — whether engaged or disengaged — may allow the firearm to discharge if dropped.

“The safety of our customers is our paramount concern so we have voluntarily initiated this recall because of the possibility of a drop-fire occurring,” the company says.

Walther is asking CCP owners not to load or fire their pistols and to contact the company immediately to arrange a free upgrade. Once the upgrade is completed, Walther will have a dot milled into the back side of the magazine opening. The gun maker did not specify a timeline.

Contact Walther by phone Monday-Friday at 8am-5pm EST at 1-866-503-3389, email ccprecall@waltherarms.com or the company website.
