In very rare instances failure of the cross bolt safety button on the Masai Mara shotgun have been reported.
On April 6th 2020 Retay USA received notice from a customer that the safety button on his Retay Masai Mara shotgun was defective.
He reported that he was able to fire his shotgun while the cross bolt trigger safety was engaged in the "SAFE" position.
This is the first report of this kind to be received by RETAY USA to date and we do not anticipate this type of failure to be widespread.
Never the less, at Retay USA we take the safety of our customers and the public very seriously. Out of an abundance of caution, we encourage all those in possession of RETAY shotguns to safely test the effectiveness of the cross bolt safety on their Retay Firearms to ensure they will not fire when in the "safe" position.
A test can be preformed as follows:
First: be sure to point the muzzle of your firearm in a safe direction.
Second: place the cross bolt trigger safety in the "SAFE" position. ( in the SAFE position, the red painted ring around the safety button will NOT be visible on the left or right side of the trigger guard )
Third: physically check to be sure the firearm is unloaded. If not, unload the firearm making sure that both the chamber and magazine tube contain no ammunition.
Fourth: cycle the bolt back and then forward so that the hammer is cocked and the bolt is closed and ready as if to be fired.
Fifth: check again that the muzzle of the firearm is pointed in a safe direction and squeeze the trigger.
