As I understand it (and if my facts are not quite right someone please correct me) what happened was that during one or two production cycles there were a number of 03 ations that did not get hardened, most were recovered and either destroyed, some were used for Hoffer Thompson 22 cal trainers, and some had the barrels pluged and used for drill teams. Unfortunatly some made it into the field and there were some tragic blowups. So to be better safe than sorry there was a blanket warning for the entire range of serial numbers the MAY have been effected.
