Argus AAD
« on: November 29, 2010, 07:17:20 am »
Hi All,

I've been seeing a lot of chatter regarding the Argus recall. At first it appeared as though the recall had effected only models produced during a certain time frame. However, I read something recently implying all Argus models are suspect.(I don't know if this Is good or bad information; so that's why I'm inquiring). Any input from one of our riggers or senior jumpers is appreciated.

Thanks.

I do not know much about the issue... What I do know is from USPA's website so instead of trying to put it in my own words I though I would just give you the link to what I have read.

Sorry I don't know anymore at this time.

Thanks Ryan. I checked out the link, and I think that's the article I was referencing in my orginal post. I think I'll just wait until my spring re-pack and check with one of the riggers then. I assume there will more/better information by then. Thanks for the reply and Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year to all.

Hey Lou,

A recall was issued for cutters made in 2007. You should not be affected by this recall. You can check by looking at your datacard
which will be hidden in a pocket somewhere on your rig. It should have the D.O.M for your argus.

I'm not aware of any other recall. This recall is for replacement at your next repack cycle, not immediate. Check with your rigger if in doubt though.

Cheers,

Franz
