Ack! Just ran my serial number and it has to go back. Pity.
It was girlfriend's 700 SPS and I sent it in for her and they replaced the trigger. Thus far it seems to be fine. She (thankfully) never had a problem with it - but then again she hasn't shot it much since I bought her a 25-06 about 5 years back which she uses as her hunting rifle. Since it cost nothing to have it fixed - it made sense to have it done and not have the worry.so did you ever send your gun back and if so how was the replacement trigger?
I remember when our swat snipers had to send their guns back a couple years ago... they came back with a better trigger than what they sent it back with and were impressed.
I could not find a date on that article. It was a nice write up, but it is only good for the rifles that were manufactured before 2006 (which all of mine are).Not all Remington 700 rifles have/had unsafe triggers....this link is a decent article on the Good, the Bad and the Ugly with the Remington 700...https://gunnewsdaily.com/remington-700-review/
from that article:
The rifles included in this recall would be any that were manufactured from May 1, 2006, to April 9, 2014.
However, Remington eventually did the most responsible thing they could do in this situation, they admitted they had found a common problem, and then issued the safety recall. If you happen to have a Model 700 made between those dates you can send your rifle into Remington and they will inspect it, clean it, test it, and return it to you for free.
