Beretta BRX1 rifle: updated and ready for the market again

Beretta announces that it has found and adopted the solution that definitively prevents any improper use of the new BRX1 rifle – already reported about the BRX1 safety recall. A meticulous work that during the month of December involved technicians, engineers and all the staff of the Italian manufacturer even during the Christmas period in order to provide a quick and effective answer to the issue of an improper use by a customer, which occurred when operating against the instructions in the operation and maintenance firearm user manual. An effort that also involved all supplier partners.

The modifications focused on the trigger and cylinder-bolt assembly. 

After a careful analysis of the case, the modifications focused on the trigger and cylinder-bolt assembly.  If the gun is assembled incorrectly and the bolt isn’t completely closed, the updated firing rod cannot now touch the firing pin. With the update, the firing pin can no longer protrude from the bolt head and release the shot when the bolt is not perfectly closed.

The modification – which involves 6 firearm parts – has been followed by in-depth tests on all the components that have been meticulously checked before proceeding with the production of the parts for the update with which the new BRX1 rifles are now equipped and will always be equipped from now on.

Specific training for all the distributors and local dealers has been undertaken. Beretta would like to thank its loyal customers for their patience and the gun shops for their valued and active collaboration.
