Just wanted to inform all you owners of the model 1500, 1550 and 1700LS that there is a safety recall on the bolt sleeve. The recall was out since 2002, but I just learned about it myself. Here is a link for serial #s and more info.
Had my Smith & Wesson 1500 in .270 since 1982 and hunt with it on a weekly basis for mouflon sheep and pigs out here on the Big Island of Hawaii. I've had no problems with it, but I will be checking out the recall.
