Georgia-based ammo manufacturer G2 Research has announced a recall of all .45 ACP Radically Invasive Projectile (R.I.P.) rounds manufactured between July 1, 2014 and November 30, 2014.
According to the statement, cartridges manufactured in that time frame “may exhibit excessive chamber pressures when utilized in unsupported chambers of certain Glock .45 ACP firearms.”
G2 Research says this notice applies only to .45 ACP R.I.P. lots from July-November of this year with the UPC code 63552 0002. Any other lots of .45 ACP R.I.P. are not subject to this recall.
“Use of this product in Glock .45 ACP firearms may result in firearm damage and/or personal injury,” the statement reads. “This does not affect any other .45 ACP firearms.”
The lot manufacture date can be found printed on the inside of the box flap. The UPC code is located on the side of the box.
If you have a Glock chambered in .45 ACP, call 678-533-2033 ext 4, or contact G2 Research through their website for a free replacement of your .45 ACP R.I.P. rounds.
