Mossberg has identified an issue during loading/unloading select SA-410 shotgun models, causing the company to issue a product safety recall. The issue only affects a limited range of serial numbers. If you fall within the recall, please contact the company for details on repairing the shotgun immediately.
Mossberg International Issues Safety Recall on Select SA-410 Shotguns
The issue occurs when the user prematurely releases the shotshell while loading or unloading. According to the company, the unretained shotshell can potentially contact the Bolt Lock Button inside the loading port. As a result, the contact can cause the shell to detonate.
Although the recall doesn’t state the affected serial numbers, the recall page has a form for checking your serial number. However, while putting your serial number into the form, keep in mind that serial numbers won’t contain the letter O. If it looks like your serial number includes the letter O, input it into the form as a “0” (zero).
Mossberg also asks that you contact them with the recipient’s information if you have already sold or transferred your SA-410. However, you can also just share the recall information with the new owner.
If you do find that your shotgun is affected by this recall, the company asks that you do not load, fire, or use your SA-410. The company has a simple two-step process for rectifying the issue on your own or returning it for repair:
