WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of Product: Browning Air Pistols

Units: About 9,500

Importer: Umarex USA Inc., of Fort Smith, Ark.

Hazard: Under a variety of circumstances, the safety will not prevent the gun from firing. This poses a risk of serious injury to the user or bystanders.

Incidents/Injuries: The firm has received one report of the pistol discharging while the safety was engaged. No injuries have been reported.

Description: This recall involves all Browning 800 Mag Air pistols, which are black and measure 18 inches by 7 inches. The Browning logo and "800 Mag" are printed on the top of the air pistol's barrel block.

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the air pistol, ensure it is unloaded and contact Umarex USA to receive instructions on returning the air pistol for a free repair. Umarex USA will engrave repaired pistols with a "P" on the left side of the receiver, forward of the plastic end cap. Until repaired, consumers should safely store the unloaded pistol in its open or uncocked state.
