Ruger issuing safety recall of select SR-556VT rifles

The accuratized SR-556VT features a non-standard two-stage trigger with a faulty disconnector. Rugerís vendor did not properly heat-treat the disconnectors and they are susceptible to wear with use. A worn disconnector can lead to a problem where pulling the trigger does not immediately release the hammer as well as fail to catch the hammer after cycling a round causing double-fires.
Both of these potential outcomes are serious and can be very dangerous
