    Issue 1. Not recall but free factory fix. SIG P556 (Ser# TQ001XXX) Bolt: firing pin retaining pin. Pin can not be removed by hand or with a punch. Removal required for proper cleaning/maintenance. Pin at max spec, hole at min spec. Called Sig. they were failure with the problem. They gave shipping and work order info. Mailed on day one from FL. part repaired and received on day five!.

    Issue two: Not a factory recall but free factory fix. SIG 522 Bolt buffer rod and "E" clip. E clip and buffer rod fail due to slippage or e clip breakage. Call SIG. They will tell you what parts you need to ship and the will give you shipping information and a work order number. They will ship you a repair kit with all the parts required for your repair/installation. You could probably ship the entire gun if you want them to do the replacement/repair. The bad buffer rods are tapered on the end furthest from the bolt.

    I have to be a lucky bastard, I just bought a Remington 700 SPS and only after 6 weeks they've been recalled for trigger problems. First was the T/C Venture now this. All the Remmy's with X mark pro triggers being recalled.
