    I wasn't putting the blame on the importer's door, but rather on S&W, who, I gather, have been rather slack in their communication with the guys this side.

    I think S&W decided to get the info out asap and that might have happened a bit too fast. Think about the law suits if something bad happened in the time the prepared a information brochure or something like that.

    I contacted S&W directly. The response I got was to discuss with my local distributor. They directed me to their website where the nearest distributor listed is not even on the continent.

    A win for geography!

    Yeah I imagine their warranty link contains the specific regions where they're actually offering the recall.

    I did, however, email (yes, I'm one of those people) two of the local agents roughly a week ago but have as yet not received a response from either. I just don't get around to calling during the day.

    A local gunsmith spoke to the guys at MRST and they said they will be getting in a few gauges to check bolts. Not sure of a date.

    Gents - if you're so inclined you can request S&W to ship you a gauge directly.

    Here's the link for international clients to request a gauge.
