The only Walker triggers I've know to fail are the ones someone messed with and didn't follow directions.

That means you haven't seen enough of them.

Thanks for the reply. I tried to "request pick-up" per the remngtonclassaction website to get the trigger replaced but get an error message. I tried to speak to someone but after being on hold for 20 minutes, I was told to leave a message. I was advised to not use the rifle six months ago and have not ( I have lots of others to shoot) but I am getting frustrated. I suppose I'll just have to wait to see what the judge in Kansas City has to say on the 29th.

Perry01--
Tell me again what gun you have. Is the trigger grooved or smooth?
There is also a RECALL of all XMP triggers made between 2006 and April 2014. They should be responding if yours is a newer gun with the XMP trigger made during that time period.

I own two M700's both are in my gun safe at home and I'm pulling a 24 hour shift at work. I know one is affected and the other isn't. When I get home tomorrow, I'll take a look and reply back.

Perry01--- Remington claims the re-call triggers have an excess of sealant inside which can cause a Fire on Safe Release by effectively gluing the safety block to the front of the trigger. By that reckoning, if you don't use the safety the trigger should be safe to use. When your rifle is returned, the trigger is removed and inspected. If no other damage or problems are noted the trigger is disassembled, cleaned of all sealant and re-assembled back on your rifle with the proper sealant in the proper places.

Rem 700 with Walker Triggers

I agree, I've had no problem with mine!

I'd also add that the only way I can see anyone getting hurt from a unexpected discharge is:

To have a cartridge in the chamber and the rifle pointed a someone or some part of yourself!

My trigger is grooved, does that make a difference? The reason I started this thread was because I got a recall notice way back in 2004. I sent in the card with my serial number and never heard back from Remington. Just recently I heard of Remington bolt actions firing pins slipping with the slightest vibration.
I want to know if I should pursue this issue since I have yet to have a problem with my rifle, but if there is even the slightest possibility of the pin slipping I want a new bolt.

motobreath138. You have a WALKER trigger. Just do any search on Remington Walker and get covered up in information.
Nothing is wrong with your bolt, but here's a question to date the gun. DOES the safety lock the bolt handled down? Those pre-'83 guns should DEFINITELY have the bolt lock cut off. (Instructions are here somewhere).

Do you want to change to a trigger that does NOT have the design defect is the question. There are several answers.

My safety allows the bolt handle to come up but doesn't allow it to be pulled back. My bolt also has a "J" key that disables it completely.

mb138-- I'd be curious to know why your bolt doesn't open and retract while on safe. If it opens there is nothing to prevent pulling the bolt back to unload the gun.

You have a Walker trigger made after 1984. I don't know when the key lock was started.
