The recalled product is a Swiss Arms break-barrel, single-shot air rifle. The rifle is 34 inches long with a black barrel. It has a wood stock with checkering etched on the grip and forend and a rubber recoil pad on the butt. It has a metal fixed front sight, a fold-down rear sight and a receiver for mounting optics. The rifle comes with a 4x32 millimeter scope. "XT32" and "Cal.4.5/.177" are on the left side of the barrel hinge plate. The rifle is cocked by swinging the barrel down on its hinge to "break" the gun open for loading, then swinging the barrel back up into firing position. Model number "288719" is located on the barrel near the rear sight.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard. CPSC's work to help ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters and household chemicals -– contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.
Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly-announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
To report a dangerous product or a product-related injury go online to www.SaferProducts.gov or call CPSC's Hotline at 800-638-2772 or teletypewriter at 301-595-7054 for the hearing impaired.
