postheadericon Honor Defense Press Release Regarding Unintended Discharge Of Their Firearms, Offers Upgrades

Not too long ago, a few videos surfaced that showed the user hitting an Honor Defense Honor Guard pistol on the rear of the slide with a rubber mallet, making the firearm discharge. Drop tests were also conducted and at times, the firearm would discharge.

In response, Honor Defense did some investigating and have completed a few upgrades to their pistol line. Take a look at the PR below:

Honor Defense offers Voluntary Upgrade for Honor Guard Pistols

Published Date: 01/18/2017

Gainesville, GA (January 18, 2017) – All Honor Defense pistols meet or exceed industry and U.S.A standards for safety. These include the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) / Sporting Arms Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, Inc. (SAAMI®), and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) test protocols. Abusive handling (drop tests and jar off tests) have been conducted internally and confirmed by an outside laboratory recognized by the State of California.

Recent events indicate that handling an Honor Guard pistol beyond U.S.A. safety standards by dropping or striking the firearm with a hammer may cause an unintentional discharge. As a result, Honor Defense has developed an upgrade to the Honor Guard striker assembly (within the slide).

To receive the upgrade, go the Honor Defense website and follow the directions outlined in the Honor Guard Upgrade section. Once received, Honor Defense will upgrade your slide unit and promptly return it to you.

This upgrade will provide increased drop performance beyond U.S.A safety standards and is available to all owners of an Honor Guard pistol.

Details of this program will be available on www.honordefense.com on January 21, 2018.

Honor Defense is committed to providing the best single stack pistols for personal protection and using only American craftsmanship and parts for our firearms. Honor Defense pistols have been designed utilizing 100% USA parts, materials with every firearm assembled by Veterans.

Honor Defense is also committed to safety and ensuring we produce the finest possible firearms. For example, in addition to exceeding industry standards, the Honor Guard is designed for disassembly without pulling the trigger, or the use of tools. This is part of the Honor Defense commitment to safety and overcomes one of the major safety issues consumers have with striker-fired firearms. The added feature of a take-down lever eliminates a disassembly activity that could potentially lead to an accidental discharge.

In response to an announcement by the US Attorney General and the Director of National Intelligence about increased transparency on national security orders, the companies who dismissed their motions with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court released the following joint statement.

“We filed our lawsuits because we believe that the public has a right to know about the volume and types of national security requests we receive. We’re pleased the Department of Justice has agreed that we and other providers can disclose this information. While this is a very positive step, we’ll continue to encourage Congress to take additional steps to address all of the reforms we believe are needed.”
