Would an aftermarket trigger cure the supposed problem with safety issues on a remington 700.
I like and own several 700's, and have for years. The "safety issue" has always been there, and a couple times over the years it's popped up in a production run and caused problems.
Personally, I consider the cost of a M700 to include a Timney these days. For the cost they are more than adequate for a hunting/varmit rifle, and when I sell one, I replace the factory trigger and keep the Timney. I've one that's been on at least three 700's over the years, and it always drops in and works like a charm. I've never had an accidental discharge.
That said, it just plain isn't a Ruger MKII or M70 safety, with the option to mechanically block the firing pin in case of a spill on a slippery hill. Probably the best reason to know where it's pointed at all times.
