Remington 700 and Model 7 Recall


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


This recall notice is for:
"Remington Model 700™ and Model Seven™ rifles with X-Mark Pro® (“XMP®”) triggers, manufactured from May 1, 2006 to April 9, 2014." (quote from Remington notice)

It replaces a previous notice misplaced in the shuffle.

unclenick,

I read the Remington Rifle SETTLEMENT notice in the August 2015 "Guns & Ammo" magazine on page 108. The notice covers ALL Remington Models 700, 722, 725 and others. I called 1-800-876-5940 and talked with a person who agreed to mail me the 18-PAGE Claim Form. I was advised a separate claim form is needed for EACH Remington.

I will report back after I review the Claim Form.

I think the 721 was in the mix too.

Unclepaddy,

Has anyone filled out the reported Remington "18-page Claim Form?" My printer was out of ink and my computer "Cashed" yesterday so I could NOT Download the Rem Claim Form. I am awaiting the 18-page document. I find it odd a BATFE Form 4473 is one page and covers my name, DOB, SSN, Address and the gun make model and serial number. I could summarize the history of the world in 18 pages. Whatever.

The Remington gentleman on the phone yesterday, who printed out the 18 page form, advised a "Third Party" named Angian is sending out the 18-page forms and collecting data for the Court. Stay tuned.

Could I suggest we move this to the proper discussion? The recall this thread applies to is entirely different than the one Webley is talking about.

Remington Walker Class Action, or another thread? This is and will become a very confusing in the months ahead.

The recall of XMP trigger referred to in this thread is only for those triggers made between the dates listed. May 1 2006 to April 9, 2014.

The proposed class action settlement you're looking for information on is to potentially replace 7.83 million Walker triggers made roughly from 1962 to 2005. Notice I did NOT say Walker trigger made before the introduction of the Model 700 in 1962. Those are part of the class, but replacement is not proposed. The owners of the 721, 722, and 725.THose and the Model 600, 660 and varients get a 'voucher' from Remington to buy shooting gear with. The proposal is for $10 or $12 depending on model.

To complicate matters are those people that have already returned a Walker triggered rifle and got a recalled XMP in return and those that bought Model 783 and 710 rifles with triggers that have connectors. They're part of the class, too.

I posted two links. One has all the court filings in pdf form.

It is my contention the confusion is purposeful and does not ultimately result in safer guns. I'm pushing for information to be given (a la Ruger OMSA) from Remington so shooters know the truth. Many will choose to ignore it either way, but at least an informed decision can be made.

Notice Webley, it's not Remington telling you about it. It's lawyers.

I have two Remington's (1 700, 1 model 7) that fall into the 1962-2005 time frame.
I don't want to be involved with Remington, I would just like to replace the triggers.
Can anyone suggest a good solid trigger replacement for the two guns?
Thanks

Jack, I am a little confused by the last two posts, probably because I have never looked at the 700 series: Does mere replacement of the trigger prevent the potential inadvertent firings? is the interaction between the safety and the triggers different with a Timney or other replacement?

All over-ride triggers BUT the Walker have a single trigger acting on a sear. It is the displacement of the connector that causes failures in the Walker. Without the connector, you have a safer trigger.

The Remington safety uses the leverage of the saftey lever to lift the tail of the sear. That locks the firing pin and cocking piece to the rear just like a Model 70 does. BUT, the trigger and connector are free to move (be pulled). IF the connector does not return with the trigger, there is nothing to catch the sear when the safety il flipped OFF.

Timney's safety blocks the trigger by way of a plunger in front of the trigger. With the trigger blocked from movement the sear can't fall and it's still holding back the cocking piece and firing pin.

I won't use either one. I lift the bolt handle so the cocking piece and firing pin are blocked by the body of the bolt. A gun can not fire in that position, period.

I have a model 710 manufactured in 2000 or 2001. My father bought the rifle for me and mentioned in passing that he received a recall notice for the bolt on certain serial numbers around 2004(or there abouts). Is this the same issue? And if the recall includes my rifle is it to late to exchange the bolt?

motobreath138--- The Model 710 has a Walker trigger with the connector in it. At this time, I know of no factory trigger to replace it.
The M710 trigger can exhibit another fault that is downright scary to see. With the safety lever 'perched' between safe and fire, it can fire with a pull of the trigger. It usually takes more than one pull to do it. It's called FFN, or Fire From Null.
Be very careful with that rifle. The attaching method of the trigger makes it particularly 'fragile'.

There is a web site where you can inquire about a replacement trigger sometime in the future.

Thanks JBelk. From what I remember the recall was because the firing pin could slip after dropping the rifle or other such vibrations. My father said they were going to replace the bolt. I'm not worried about the FFN safety issue since I don't hunt with this rifle anymore and I would never have a round in the chamber unless the rifle was pointed down range.

I have a 700 in 22-250 and it is because they use the wrong lube in the bolt . It had harden up. I had brought the gun to my gunsmith and he had clean the bolt and the gun also for me and and he said that they had used the wrong lube and alot of the guns that was sent in that they had only clean the bolt and send it back to the person.I do not have more problems on the gun now.

More bad news.

As if Remington's reputation couldn't get worse. I own a few 1980's & earlier models That I really like & would still buy, both rifle & shotgun. It's a shame to see a once good mfgr circling the bowl. I would think long & hard before buying a current Rem, or one of their takeover mfgr's.

Please understand too--- The so-called "repaired" Model 600 triggers have NOT been in any way repaired except to correct a bad dimension. It's still a stamped housing Walker trigger with a BIG percentage found to SHOW the defect when tested. (the defect IS there, no matter if it fails or not.)

It has been over six months since I submitted my serial number and filed a claim. I was informed that my rifle has an affected trigger but still no word from Remington. Has anyone received a response yet?

Perry01-- The judge has not agreed on the terms of the class settlement, yet. The next hearing will be the 29th of this month in Kansas City. It is my understanding you can return your rifle (with Walker trigger) for an XMP at any time but times for return vary from days to months.
