Remington 700 recall?

Do any of y'all have a newer model 700 that is affected by the recall?
Mine is and is being sent back this coming week.

Just curious….

Thinking about getting a new trigger for it once I get it back….

Yea, I know.
I've had a couple people tell me to just do a new trigger.
But. Well, I'd rather just send it back and let them do whatever they need to do, that way I know I'm covered.

I agree it is best to get it done by the manufacturer. And why anyone would spend money on an aftermarket product just doesn't make sense to me.

Well, I've fired one or a long range rifle with a 1.5 pound trigger…
Not that I want a 1.5 pound trigger, but something a little better than the stock trigger.

I can tell you that the Timney 3# trigger I have in my CORE15 is freakin' awesome.
Something to be said about aftermarket triggers.

I can't tell you anything about the new triggers but the old one are the best . I had the original drawing and letter between Remington and Sweeny [ who designed the trigger ] and there is no better trigger made . My XP pistol I made into a rifle below I put a 700 Remy trigger in it and made it into 2 oz target trigger . I'm with Remy If it is adjust correctly it will go off by accidently . The other thing is why are they pointing a LOADED gun at someone anytime . But putting a safety on or off and pointing at someone don't make good sense to me . That is why 99% of the story you hear are BS and made up in my opinion .

I agree. Have Remington take care of it, even if you do decide to add a replacement trigger. Having had the warranty work done is a big plus should you ever decide to sell or trade.

I started out with a Remington 700 and, later, a 788, way back n the day. These days, though, all my centerfire bolts are CZs or new production Winchester 70s.

Well, it's been at Remington for a couple weeks now.
Sure wish they'd hurry up and get it fixed & sent back.

Have never had to deal with the current Remington, so no idea how there CS rates. I do know that I hate shipping off a gun for work and then waiting to get it back. I feel your pain. Hang in, there.

Got it back on Monday.
I've put the bipod & scope back on, but need to get to the range with it (& some loctite) and check/re-zero & make sure all is where I want it to be.

I think next on my list is a new trigger, something along the lines of 1-1.5 pounds.

For about two months now,I've been wanting a .338 RUM and can't find one.
Remington must be the only one who makes this round because I can't find one in any other brand.

I had a 338 Winc Mag super cal and loved it . 338 RUM can't be that much better then 338 Winc , just too hard to find factory ammo for it if something happen to you ammo on a hunting trip .
