Lyman Black Powder Product Recall


2018 Product Safety Recall on Lyman Black Powder Rifles and Pistols.

Lyman Products Corp. is voluntarily recalling black powder rifles and pistols due to the potential of separation in the breech plug. Lyman maintains a safety-first approach, so despite finding only a few firearms affected and no reported injuries, they are offering a recall program to have the issue corrected. Lyman regrets the inconvenience but remains committed to the safety of our customers.


How to Identify Rifles and Pistols Subject to the Recall:

Find the serial number where the barrel meets the tang, opposite of the lock. The serial number has the letter “A” followed by a series of 6 numbers.

Action to be Taken:

If the serial number is within the range of A595960–A599026, immediately discontinue any use of this product. Please contact the Lyman Customer Service Department by emailing or by calling 800-225-9626 Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. EST. You will be asked to provide your contact information, serial number, and either the part number or model to process the return.


Anyone outside the U.S.A. who is in possession of a black powder rifle or pistol within the recall range should contact your local distributor immediately.
