Some people still believe the world is flat, doesn't make it true.Remington 700 is a great gun. They don't fire themselves and the safeties are as good as any other. If you don't keep your finger off the trigger you can't blame the gun. Even after they redesigned the trigger people kept filing suits because they figured they could get money for free.
In the only lawsuit that went to court Remington proved that the trigger worked as it should and that the safety worked as it should. They also demonstrated that if the gun was not maintained as required in the owners pamphlet Rust could get under the trigger sear plate and cause problems. This was determined to be owner neglect and Remington was not responsible.
I own three Remingtons and have never had trigger or safety problems with any of them. I've never met anyone who has.
