Would an aftermarket trigger cure the supposed problem with safety issues on a remington 700.

There is nothing like beating a dead horse with this issue.

Keep your trigger assemblies clean/oiled and you will likely never a problem if there is even one in the first place.

Keep in mind fellas, this is a story/issue that was broke by NBC news. The same folks that were caught purposely igniting fuel tanks in the GM p/u trucks to make them turn into fireballs to get a sensationalized story to make a bunch of money off of.

There may full well be an issue. That's why in the manual it says to always keep your gun pointed in a safe direction.
I have had the same issue with old Mossbergs as well. But fortunately the gun was pointed in the right direction. And it doesn't get used any more. Old guns that have been used quite a bit do need the occasional inspection and cleaning. And a boatload of common sense.

Guns are mechanical devices. Mechanical devices fail. That's why we are supposed to use common sense and safety with them.
