Tree stands, air rifle recalled

by Ed Godfrey Published: October 24, 2012

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued two voluntary recalls Wednesday on outdoor products, a Hatsan Strike air rifle and a River’s Edge tree stand.
The air rifles can fire unexpectedly when closing the action during the cocking process.
The recall involves Hatsan Striker air rifles that shoot pellets. The air rifles are available in three styles: black with a gray forearm grip and gray rear grip; camouflage with a black forearm grip and black rear grip; and, brown hardwood with crosshatching cut into the forearm grip and rear grip.
They measure 43 inches in length. The air rifles have a black scope and a front sight and a rear sight. “Striker” is printed on the top of the gun’s barrel behind the rear sight.
Serial numbers of recalled rifles begin with one of the following sets of numbers: 0511, 0811, 0911, 1011, 0112, 0212, 0312, or 0412. The serial numbers are printed on the air rifle’s barrel block on the left side just in front of the rear sight.
