In looking at Reminton's offering, I have noted that they offer 2 externally adjustable triggers. The new X-Mark Pro and the 40-X. Can anyone share experience with these triggers? Which would work out better for a strictly informal target rifle?

I have the X-Mark Pro on a 700 SPS .243 Win. To get the trigger pull that I wanted, I needed to back out the screw fairly far. Now I feel the screw on my finger-annoying. But, the trigger is light and crisp, no other complaints.

Thanks for the reply. One thing that was bothering me is that on their website, they state that the trigger must be adjusted by the factory or an authorized repair center. I wonder if they mean an adjustment beyond what the little screw will do? Have you measured your pull weight? For a strictly target rifle, I am accustomed to 3/4 - 1 lb and absolutely no creep.

They just don't want people tinkering on their rifles. It has the same standing as the warning against using handloaded ammunition. Adjustments and reloading is to be done at your risk.

Hello, I tried to order a X-Mark Pro trigger from Midway,USA last week. The trigger on my Mod 7 is junk and I mean junk. I called Rem and they told me to send it to Gander Mt as their repair facility. The smith at Gander told me he would just send it to Rem. (go figure) Anyway Midway told me they could only send this new X-mark to a FFL, Rem factory rule. I have tried to adjust this trigger 6 times to no avail, it even wiggles and rattles. Oh well, I ordered a Timney from Midway no FFL rule great trigger. see ya, Bill

The X-Mark Pro is a hunting trigger, I can get mine down to about a 2 1/2 pound pull. This weight is fine for an experienced hunter but wouldn't be a target trigger. My brother pulls these trigers and installs one that he gets under 1# for his bench guns.

Have a 40X on my 22-250 coyote,crow,groundhog rifle. Excellent trigger crisp,12oz, no overtravel. I've owned some triggers as good but none better. remington may still require your chosen retailer to deal with a FFL. see ya, Bill

Bill, I'm one of the good guys! I've maintained a FFL for about 25 years now. I just haven't received or bought any rifles with these new triggers. I usually gain knowledge from the items coming in the door. Dusty

Dusty, My oldest son has a 700 SPS Tactical with the X-Mark trigger. Most excellent, however I've heard good and bad about the X-Mark. I've owned several 700's and the trigger on the Mod 7 is the 1st bad trigger I've ever encountered from Rem. Also my 1st dealing with Rem customer service. I just thought dealing with a FFL for a part is a waste of time.(not bashing FFL's at all). I like Rem rifles and will continue to use them, I like FFL's and will continue to use them. ha see ya' Bill

X Mark Pro is standard on new SPS. Make sure you see adjustment screw on the trigger so that it is not OLD stock. If ordering, state "must have X Mark Pro" on order sheet to avoid any old stock that might be out there.
