Through continued testing of the SA-17 marker, our Quality Control Department has identified a potential issue. The problem is described as:
A CO2 cartridge may fly out of the marker and impact a user, if contact occurs with the face, eye, or head, creating potential injury if the user had disregarded the instructions in the manual and is not wearing approved paintball safety protection equipment when operating the product.
Through the course of normal operation, the chance of this occurrence is very slim and is not an issue if the user follows the instructions in the manual and wears a paintball mask when inserting the 12-gram CO2 cartridges. KEE Action Sports is taking this risk very seriously and has contacted the US Consumer Product Safety Commission to assist us in taking corrective action. The CPSC is a US government agency charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from consumer products
Please note that there have been no reported cases of this issue having occurred nor any injuries reported. KEE is taking these pro-active measures to ensure the safety of players and stand behind our products 100%.
