New Hampshire-based Sig Sauer last week warned all users of its CROSS bolt-action rifles to immediately stop use as part of a safety recall. 

From Sig:  

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.

To register for the recall process please visit [the recall website] 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. 

Sig Sauer introduced the CROSS late last year as its first U.S.-produced bolt gun. Using a one-piece aluminum receiver with a folding adjustable SIG precision stock, the sub-7-pound CROSS was to be chambered in 6.5CM, .308 Win and .277 SIG Fury, the latter a new hybrid cartridge recently approved by SAAMI.
