    Thought I would share this since Remington has until January 29th to come up with a better plan to alert the public regarding this trigger recall. I plan on sending my 700 in to have this corrected even though I have yet to have a accidental discharge. I encourage all owners of the qualifying models to take advantage of this and to also take extra care when handling your firearm. A link to the settlement page is posted below.

    A proposed nationwide Settlement has been preliminary approved in a class action lawsuit involving certain Remington firearms. The class action lawsuit claims that trigger mechanisms with a component part known as a trigger connector are defectively designed and can result in accidental discharges without the trigger being pulled. The lawsuit further claims that from May 1, 2006 to April 9, 2014, the X-Mark Pro® trigger mechanism assembly process created the potential for the application of an excess amount of bonding agent, which could cause Model 700 or Seven bolt-action rifles containing such trigger mechanisms to discharge without a trigger pull under certain limited conditions. The lawsuit contends that the value and utility of these firearms have been diminished as a result of these alleged defects. Defendants deny any wrongdoing.

    This is cross posted in rife discussion to make more people aware of this.
