Firearm Forum Question: Remington Model 597 Rifle, 17 HMR Recall Notice

Ask A Firearms Question:
It is my understanding that Remington has a Product Safety Recall Notice out on it's 17 HMR Rifles and Ammo, is this true ?
Thank you James Woodward II.

Remington 17 HMR Safety Recall Notice ....
Remington has issued this statement -
=> 17 HMR AMMUNITION AND MODEL 597® 17 HMR SEMI-AUTOMATIC:



DO NOT USE REMINGTON 17 HMR AMMUNITION IN SEMI-AUTOMATIC FIREARMS.


DO NOT USE THE REMINGTON MODEL 597, 17 HMR SEMI-AUTOMATIC RIFLE.


Remington has been notified by its supplier of 17 HMR ammunition that 17 HMR ammunition is not suitable for use in semi-automatic firearms. 

The use of this ammunition in a semi-automatic firearm could result in property damage or serious personal injury.

Remington Toll Free Phone Number in the USA:
Consumer Service Department at 1-800-243-9700, Prompt #3

LINK to Remington's Website for the Recall Notice:

Why Remington had a recall notice on their entire line of .17 HMR Model 597 Rifles.

Just take a look at the 3 photos below:

Answer :
Blog Administrator -
Yes, this is correct and it's on Remington Rifles and Ammo in the 17 HMR Caliber.
See Youtube Video below.

It addition -
Hornady, an Ammunition Manufacturer has issued a Product Warning Notice, On September 15, 2009, about the USE of 17 HMR Caliber Ammo. There ammo is not on Recall.

All 17 HMR Ammo Manufacturers have issued Warnings NOT to use any ammo in the Remington Model 597 Rifle in 17 HMR Caliber.
Essentially 17 HMR Ammo is not safe to use in Semi-Auto Rifles.

Note: 17 HMR Ammo is a rimfire bottleneck cartridge.

    1. Remington has such poor quality anymore that it's a hit and miss on rather you get something that wont be on a future recall list.

  7. Many gun manufacturers has failures. For example, SIG P320 has failed drop test recently.
