One year after its release, Newport-based firearms manufacturer Sturm, Ruger is recalling a popular rifle similar to the AR-15.

The company is recalling all SR-556-VT rifles due to a problem with the trigger system. Ruger says on its website that the disconnector can wear down early. And that can cause delayed gunfire, or even double firing. That’s when the gun fires as expected, when the trigger is pulled—but then again when it’s released.


Ruger says it hasn’t received any reports of delayed or double-firing from customers.


On its website, the company traces the problem to a vendor not properly heat treating the disconnector. Ruger says rifle owners should contact the company for information on how to get their guns retrofitted.


No other SR-556 models are affected by the recall.
The SR-556 VT hit the market last April. The SR class is Ruger’s take on AR-type rifles, which are favored for target practice and shooting mid-sized animals like coyotes.

Is firing once on pull and once on release legal? It sounds like a good feature if so...lol

I'm guessing anyone who upgraded their trigger to either a Geissele, Timney, or some other after market trigger don't have to worry about this recall then.
