Remington recalling Model 700s and Model 7s with X-Mark Pros

Gear Scout is reporting that Remington Arms Company is recalling some of its Model 700 and Model 7 rifles with X-Mark Pro triggers; owners of rifles manufactured between  01 May 06 and 09 April 14 are urged to stop using those rifles immediately and determine if they are subject to the recall.

“With about 5.3 million Model 700′s alone out in the wild since its debut in 1962, we can estimate Big Green sold an average of 100,000 rifles per year. With an 8 year recall window, rough (very rough) math tells us there could be as many as 800,000 rifles subject to this recall. That seems like a lot, but the Model 700 has been an extremely popular rifle. The trouble, according to Remington’s product notification, is that excess bonding agent used in the assembly of the X-Mark Pro trigger in some rifles can lead to unintentional discharge of the rifles. Remington says the only remedy is to send recalled rifles in for inspection, cleaning and testing. They stress that consumers shouldn’t try to clean the triggers themselves.” Rob Curtis, Gear Scout
