After this problem with my new 338 MX and the continued reports with Remingtons 700 safety and trigger issues, I am startig to loose faith in them. This is coming from a guy with a safe full of Remingtons. I was introduced to them by my father who also was a true Rem fan, heck my whole family owns what we once thought were the best guns made. Now we all are having doubts about the quality and concern of them(Remington) to produce and correct the problem with all their firearms! Maybe Winchester is in my future.
