Crosman Corp., in cooperation with the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission, has issued a recall of 16,000 of their semi-automatic air guns with model numbers C21, C31, and 9-C31BRM. The air pistols, which use a CO2 cartridge to propel BBs, have a potential of exploding under high temperatures.

The CPSC said there have not been any reported incidents to date but the defective product could explode, causing the plastic pieces of the gun to be propelled at high speeds with potential for eye damage and other injuries.

The air pistols were sold at sporting good stores, mass merchandisers and other retailers from November 2012 through June of 2013 for a retail price of between $45 and $60. Owners of the defective product were being told to remove the CO2 cartridge from the air pistol immediately.

 Kline & Specter won a highly publicized settlement in the case of a Bucks County, Pennsylvania, teenager, who suffered a brain injury and later died after he was shot with a defective Daisy BB gun.
