That show/investigation (call it what you want) was on again last night. I only caught the last 5 min, but i set my DVR to get an upcoming showing. I think it was going to be on CNBC Saturday or Sunday if anyone is interested. The important part is they give the code to know which trigger kit was used in the gun. Thats important because apparently they were making both types for a number of years, so you can't just go by the production date. I still want a 700, i just want to be able to make sure i get the right X-Pro trigger.
I can't help but think God is up there right now saying "its time to shake the ol' Etch-A-Sketch and restart humanity again".

I sent mine in and got the new trigger. I don't worry since mine is NEVER loaded until I get to where I am going to shoot. I load one round at a time and ONLY when I am ready to shoot. Actually I NEVER need the safety. Load and wait. If I'm going to move on I unload. That's just me.

Does anybody need a (good) 700 trigger. I've got a couple. If someone needs one , pm me with an address and I'll send one.

Except for a handful of 700s its a mute issue. Many manufaturers have recalls. Ford, Toyota, GM, Sony etc etc. I own several dozen 700s and have no plans to demonize a weapon that has always served me and mine 100%. Will continue to follow the 700/870 route till the end of time! Anyone wanting out drop me a line on any 700 in excellent condition. Barrel condition and chamberings are not an issue if the price is right.

If you own one be very careful.


I've got a Remington 700 in .375 H&H Magnum and I am aware of the recall although my Remington did not fall within the range of serial numbers that were recalled. I've never had it misfire although I do have a problem with the floor plate popping open whenever the weapon is fired and so I've taped closed the plate. As of now I would not buy any Remingtons. I have lost my faith in Remingtons and I do know they used to make really great products but as of recently they've been putting out junk. So I would steer clear of them.

Yeah that sounds really serious. Put a decent price on it and let me spend an hour to remedy that terrible problem since you wish to steer claer of those horrible Remingtons hahaha. First off send me the serial number to get started. Decent price and checks in the mail!

Remington's quality control isn't what it used to be. If I was looking for a new rifle there are plenty of other options.

I don't think anyone "demonized" the 700 rifle. People have died due to faulty engineering and Remington has come out and clearly stated to check your serial number and discontinue use if it's on the list. Here's exactly what they say: http://xmprecall.remington.com/
I'm sure that the 700 is a great long gun. I DO agree with BK that they have had some quality issues as of late. A good friend of mine bought a 12 gauge shotgun. Turns out it was recalled for issues. (If I remember right, it was an XPS? model). Also, I believe it was far more than a "handful" of rifles that shipped with either of the 2 faulty triggers. Not trying to hit a raw nerve with anyone, just passing along useful info that may help others... :gunsmile:

I agree DanB, but some people don't give a darn about certain things, as they say down South, "Bless his little heart". :nervous:

Did I get that right Reb?

GROW UP, not everybody here agrees with everything that is said or done, but we all get along to learn our weaknesses/strengths or a company's weaknesses/strengths, you don't have to be a I'M RIGHT AND YOU'RE WRONG type of guy/sissy. :p

I guess I'll pay dearly for that comment, but, life's a b-tch and then you die.
