Manufacturer Narrative
The associated sureshot targeter was returned and evaluated. A visual inspection of the device noted the plug is deformed; therefore a functional test could not be performed. The stated failure cannot be confirmed. However, this failure mode has been previously identified and the device is currently being redesigned to help reduce/eliminate this issue from recurrence. No additional actions are being taken at this time. However, we will continue to monitor for future complaints and investigate further as necessary. When having complications with a sureshot device, we encourage you to refer to user manual for troubleshooting suggestions. We consider this investigation closed. Should additional information be received, the complaint will be reopened.
