Just my luck

My new 700 is on the list. I signed up to send it back and waiting for my reply.

Sending it back for repairs could be a long time with the reported 1,000's of recall. Think I just break down and order me a aftermarket trigger and B&C stock.

Just like my Harley buy it and spend $$$ to upgrade what the factory can't do. HD stands for half done

The recall is to "...remove any potential excess bonding agent applied in the assembly process."

this should be a quick fix, without much disassembly. I suspect that Remington will have this done "outside' the factory by designating a number of small repair facilities; so it should go fast. This is why they don't want you mailing them to Remington. Be interesting if anyone getting a carton to mail back, lets us know where in the world they are sending them to???


Thanks for the post Mainspring

I found out about this recall on another forum yesterday. As I have several Model Sevens, all purchased since about 2004 and up through last year, I got out my list and checked all the serial #s. Luckily(?) for me, only one of the seven I own is on the list. They have already responded as to shipping the carton and that I will be shipping some place other then Remington's factory to repair. We shall soon see.

Called a friend and he and his wife both have 700's that were on the list. Waiting for another friend to check his.
HarryS Where is this bonding material located? Inside the trigger mech?

They say "DO NOT attempt to diagnose or repair recalled rifles"

I'm waiting now too. My second line of ground dwelling rodent defense is now in the pits.

Just received this email from Remington:

Confirmation for your recall submission

Remington will send you pre-paid shipping tags, boxes and written instructions. Remington will cover all related shipping, inspection, and repair charges to your rifle. Please do not return your rifle to Remington before receiving the shipping tags, as the shipping tags will be marked to expedite delivery of your rifle to the specific Remington facility dedicated to this recall program.

Just picked my rifle up the other day put scope on and bore sighted not takin it off now so I ordered timney drop in from cheaper than dirt should be here Monday. I talked to factory rep this afternoon and she said that they couldn't guess at a turn around time depends on how many respond to the recall and how fast. She said she is very busy fielding calls now I believe her it took me 1 hour to get through all circuits busy and then spent 40 min. on hold. Figured Timney would take care of problem and probably better trigger.

I had 2 that were recalled, I dropped 'em both off this morning at the Illion plant. They told me not all were in need of repairs, just the ones that had an excessive amont of bonding material. In which case those will be redone. Said they have to remove the barreled action to inspect if anything needed to be done or not.

I agree with Grizzer, and do not want to dismount my scope and send the rifle in, I think mine will get a new trigger.

I ain't sending mine in. No way. To send a $4500, custom-built rifle to New England is to kiss it good-bye. Whatcha wanna bet the gummint is not recording names, addresses and serial numbers so they can come get them on some future date? And hey, that 700 Police looks very menacing. I think it's an "assault weapon" with that green stock and black finish on the barrel. Shoots a military cartridge, too. Confiscate it!

modle 700 trigger

In the past adjusting the trigger was pretty straight forward, the triggers could be adjusted for shear engagement and pull weight. the last ones I did were very heavy and not as easy to work with. the spring weight was much higher than in the 80s you could still adjusted it with some effort but in all honesty you would be much better served with a good aftermarket trigger. One cannot blame Remington for doing this as folks are so sue happy. P.S. I have never seen a BDL that didn't need to be free floated at the minimum to get the max out of them. My own I both free floated and acryl glassed the bedding. and they performed very well. Epically the 30-06. if you are in doubt whether your 700 need float work take a dollar bill and slid it between the barrel and stock it should go to within an inch or so of the main lug. if it won't than it needs floated. Careful work by hand with some sandpaper can remedy that, but have a care as most folks don't do a good job of this on their first attempt. as for glass bedding it's not as hard as you would think just pick up a browning glass kit and follow the instructions. it really is a good idea if you own an older bolt 22 to do your first float and glass job on. like I said the first time many folks tend to take out too much from the barrel channel and then there gun looks Ugly! 22s are cheaper and you won't feel so bad if you mess up. Oh and if you do glass bed it be liberal with the releases agent or you may never get the action to come out of the stock again.
