I don't know - I have my dad's 1980 Rem 700 BDL in .30-06, and it's given me no grief. I wasn't able to shoot it very well, until I floated the barrel and put a Harris bipod on it. Now, it's an X-ring killer! But never had any mechanical issues with it.I have never been a fan of post war Remington guns. I know they have gotten worse over the last several years but when I was in the business, 70s- through early 90s, I had to send several new Rem 700s back. I got a couple 280s that looked like barrels were cut off
with a torch. Yet they were polished and blued nicely. Several others with safety problems. A 870 Wing Master that wouldn't accept a
barrel and 572 rifles that had faulty trigger groups. At about the same period I had to return a few Win 70s, all with safety problems.
Savage, were so bad I quit selling them. Marlin, Ruger and Mossberg never had to send a new one back. The time period on this was
85-92. All the companies were in financial troubles and it showed in all them, including Marlin & Ruger but it was fit & finish issues not
related to function.
I also have a 1943 Remington M1903A3, and it's a great rifle too.
