Academy Sports issued a recall notice for Charter Arms Lady .38 Special revolvers sold between February 2012 and July 2016.

Basing the recall on customer reports and product inspections, the retailer says some of the handgun “may have a manufacturing defect that could result in unsafe conditions while operating the firearm.”

According to the notice, anyone who bought The Pink Lady or The Lavender Lady revolver should “stop using it immediately!” and return it to the nearest Academy store or contact its customer service.

Once returned, Academy will send the firearm to Charter Arms for inspection and it will be returned to the store’s location after it is “certified safe for use.” Also, customers will receive a $25 gift card for the inconvenience.

Customers returning a defective pistol in-store should return it unloaded and in a case and then ask for the manager on duty.

Phone or Email: Notify Academy that you have an afflicted Charter Revolver by calling Customer Service at 1-888-922-2336 or emailing
