    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    From Weatherby Vanguard:

    Weatherby, Inc. of Atascadero, CA, is performing a safety upgrade on all Vanguard by Weatherby brand rifles manufactured between 1970 to 1993. The affected rifles bear serial numbers from one of the following series on the reciever:
    00001 through 03810; V00001 through V80966; VX00001 through VX44065; VS00001 through VS23699; VL00001 through VL46894; W0001 through W0099; NV0001 through NV0099. The safety upgrade will prevent misassembly of the bolt, which might occur on the affected rifles Such misassembly might contribute to a hazardous condition in which the rifle can be accidentally discharged without the bolt being fully engaged. If you own a Vanguard by Weatherby Rifle with one of the above serial number series, STOP USING YOUR RIFLE IMMEDIATELY, and contact Weatherby at 1.800.227.2018, or visit thier website at www.weatherby.com, to recieve a Bolt Return Kit.

    thanks and be safe,
