Browning Arms Company of Morgan, Utah, is recalling about 1,265 Browning leather pistol holsters.
The holster design can change the position of the safety switch on the firearm without the user knowing it.
When this occurs, if the trigger is accidentally pulled, the firearm could fire unexpectedly, posing an injury hazard to the user and bystanders.
The company has received one report where the holster design changed the position of the safety switch on the firearm. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves the Browning Leather Pistol Holsters, Multi-Angle Thumb Break, which is a leather pistol holster designed to carry Browning 1911-380 and 1911-22 pistols.
The holsters are brown with yellow stitching with the Browning buck mark logo branded on the front of the holster.
The holsters can be identified by Item No. 12904011 and UPC Code 023614843702, which are printed on the back of the product packaging.
The holsters, manufactured in China, were sold at sporting goods stores nationwide and online at Browning from September 2017, through December 2019, for about $80.
