G2 Research Inc. has placed a recall on its .45 ACP RIP ammunition.
G2 Research’s highly-touted RIP (Radically Invasive Projectile) ammunition has been recalled after an aggressive marketing campaign and some far-fetched (for some) claims about the ammo’s performance.
The recall covers the .45 ACP version of the bullet, giving new meaning to the tagline “The last round you’ll ever need.”
In reference to the .45 ACP Glock recall notice, the G2 Research Inc. website states the following:
If you have unused .45 ACP ammunition that falls into one of the lots produced during the recall period, July to November 2014, please email your physical address and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then issue an electronic call tag to your email address that you print off and use for sending the ammunition back to us. We will ship you replacement ammunition for your Glock as soon as it is available (mid to late December).
Additionally, G2 Research Inc.’s Facebook page states the following:
We have received some comments that the current issue .45 RIP is not compatible with Glock and its unsupported chambers. Due to this, we have revised our design to solve this issue. If you have a Glock .45, please call 678-533-2033, Ext. 4, or email us through our website for a free replacement of your ammo. Check the inside of your .45 RIP box for a date. Do not use July to November through a Glock. This does not affect any other caliber or handgun.
Here is the video that G2 released in January, which has earned more than three million views to date.
