Cadex Product Recall

March 2nd, 2022

A preventive product recall has been issued for the following product:

• Sniper Drag Bag

Cadex has been informed of an isolated problem with some accessory pocket zippers installed our Sniper Drag Bags. This problem seems specific to a batch that we received from our supplier about a year ago and may or may not impact your drag bag depending when you bought yours.

The problem originates from a specific lot of zipper carriers that left the factory hair out of spec and did not apply enough compression to each side of the zipper for the teeth to engage properly.

The fix is quite fast and easy and requires only one pair of pliers to fine-tune the zipper carrier. We’ve put a small video together for your better understanding of this easy fix:

A preventive product recall has been issued today for the following product:

• CDX-MC Kraken (detachable base screw ONLY)

The problem affects only the most recent run of our KRAKEN model.

We’ve become aware of an issue with the detachable base retaining screw. When using the CDX-MC Kraken take-down tool to screw in the bottom metal, we have found that the screw head can snap off, therefore leaving the screw body stuck in the threads.

If your CDX-MC Kraken had the issue mentioned above, this recall is for you.

If you think this recall concerns you, please get in contact with our customer service department. We will take care of sending you the correct replacement parts.

Be advised, that this recall does not cause any safety concerns whatsoever. You can continue shooting your rifle as you would typically do.

Cadex is committed to providing the best products and customer service to its customers. This is why we want everyone affected by this recall to contact our customer service department so that we can fix this situation rapidly.

Thank you for your trust and loyalty to our products. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please get in touch with our customer department at 1-888-348-6774 (toll-free) or by e-mail at customerservice@cadexinc.com for the recall procedure and for any questions you might have.
