Smith & Wesson issues recall

Posted: Updated:

Smith & Wesson has issued a safety alert for its M&P Shield firearms that were manufactured before August 19, 2013.

A defect with some of the triggers could case those weapons to accidentally fire.

Central Texas Gun Works owner Michael Cargil showed FOX 7 what to look for if somebody has one of these weapons.

"What we're inspecting is, we're pressing on the trigger to make sure that this little piece actually comes back out," Cargil said. "If I press it, it disappears, I release, it comes back out."

Cargil said before you inspect the gun, make sure you unload it and point it in a safe direction. If your weapon has this defect, you must return it to Smith & Wesson to be repaired.
