    Remington trigger recall

    Does anyone have an idea as to the years Remington trigger recall is encompassing? My two rifles are a '69 & '80 mfg. I've never heard as to just what year the recall referred to.

    It was only Remington 700's made between 2006 and 2014 that had an X-Mark Pro trigger. However, you can enter you serial number at their website and check to be safe.

    It also included 1965 model 600 .308. When I got mine back there is a small "R" stamped on the side of the trigger to show the work was done.

    They way Remington has been running lately, I don't think I'd send mine to them to get fixed. I think I'd save up a buy aftermarket triggers like a Timney. That's what I did several years ago and it really helped my rifle with a nice crisp trigger. It was much better than the factory feel.

    Didn't like the trigger on my 2012 Mod 700 after it spent 5.5 months up in Ilon, NY on a factory recall vacation. I sold the rifle and never looked back--no more new Remingtons for me. I should have had an after market trigger installed.

    There's the recall and then there's the settlement which pretty much covers them all Remington Trigger Class Action Settlement My 78 sportsman is included but I will likely just put a Timmy replacement trigger on it myself.

    I have several Rem 700 and the recall was not only for the defective years but on older models if you had the safety on it also locked the bolt from being opened. You had to take off the safety in order to open the bolt and unload the rifle. The danger was on some models that did not have a floorplate that could drop open so you could unload the shells from the bottom. On some ADL models it forced you to cycle live rounds to eject them with the safety off and this is what was deemed unsafe.

    I converted all my Rem 700's to new Timney triggers that took care of safety issues. I did not bother to send my rifles back to Remington.

    Both of mine do just as you described, lock the bolt when engaged. I have the ADL(blind magazine) and BDL,(drop floor plate) so I understand where your coming from. They've never been an issue in all the years I've had them, but many times I wished they were Winchesters with the three position safety like my .338. I'm not sure why more gun companies have not moved to that style. My Ruger 77 Mk II has a version of it, but Winchester is the best in my book.

    My Rem model 7 went off when sweeping off the safety. My finger was no where near the trigger.
    Needless to say, that BOOM s-t-s-o-o-me! Back at camp, using a spent case, it happened twice more with about 20
    attempts.
    When I returned home, I ordered a Timney.
    That little .308 runs great now. Trigger breaks clean at 3 lbs. (these Timneys are adjustable from 1.5 to 4lbs).
    I am just delighted with the upgrade. I also put a Timney on my Wife's .243 Savage; 3lbs, crisp. Mama is very happy lady!
