    Default HEXMAG recall



    OOOPS

    We have recently determined that the Hexmag .308/SR-25 10 Round manufactured by HexMag, Inc. and sold by Sentry Products Group can accept one additional round over the stated capacity. The magazine’s ability to accept one more cartridge could lead to violations of state magazine limit restrictions. Additionally, the ability to accept one additional round over the stated 10 round capacities could cause consumers who have loaded more than ten into the magazine to believe that the magazine and/or firearm is empty when stated amount of rounds are fired, and could lead to unintentional discharges

    Consumer safety is our first priority. If your .308/SR-25 10 ROUND MAGAZINES contains a black riser (depicted below left), then your magazine is subject to this recall. Please contact us immediately to facilitate the replacement of your .308/SR-25 10 Round Magazines at our factory at no charge to our customers.

    DO NOT use your .308/SR-25 10 Round Magazines unless it has been assembled with the new replacement riser! Any unintended discharge has the potential for causing injury or death.

    HOW TO DETERMINE IF .308/SR-25 10 ROUND MAGAZINES NEEDS REPLACED:
    Load your magazine with .308 cartridges of the until the magazine can no longer accept any additional cartridges. Remove each cartridge contained in the magazine and count the total number of cartridges that were capable of fitting within the magazine. If that number exceeds 10, the magazine is subject to this recall. Alternatively, if your .308/SR-25 10 ROUND MAGAZINES contains a black riser (depicted below left), then your magazine is subject to this recall.
    REPLACING YOUR AFFECTED PRODUCT
    If you own a magazine that is subject to this recall, Sentry Products Group will provide a replacement magazine configured with the replacement riser (depicted below right) and ship it to you at no additional cost.
    CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY!
    We will ask for your Name, Address, Telephone Number, Number of Magazines, and provide to you an RMA # for return and tracking purposes. Once you have been provided an RMA #, you will need to remove the riser from your affected product, and send the affected riser to: SENTRY Products Group, LLC, 2929 S. Cole Road, Boise ID 83709. Please discard the remaining components of the affected magazine. Recalled Risers will not be returned. Upon receipt, Sentry will return a new replacement magazine.

    Hey Hexmag, it's 0xA, not 0xB.

    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    Well, I can't help it. It's a blessing and a curse.

    The only thing concerning about this is getting a malfunction from loading 11 with too much spring tension. Screw 10 round commie states and screw not treating every firearm as if it's loaded.

    The ATF has determined that loading more than the designated number of rounds in a magazine constitutes remanufacturing and thus creates a full-semi-auto with a shoulder thing that goes up.

    Do not attempt to load past stated capacity!

    that one extra round turns your compliant rifle into a public health hazard.
