Rem 700 and 7 Recall X-Mark Pro Triggers

<span style="font-weight: bold">PRODUCT SAFETY WARNING AND RECALL NOTICE</span> ...&lt;LINK


PRODUCTS: Remington Arms Company, LLC (“Remington”) is voluntarily recalling Remington Model 700™ and Model Seven™ rifles with X-Mark Pro® (“XMP®”) triggers, manufactured from May 1, 2006 to April 9, 2014.

DESCRIPTION OF THE HAZARD: Remington has determined that some Model 700 and Model Seven rifles with XMP triggers could, under certain circumstances, unintentionally discharge. A Remington investigation has determined that some XMP triggers might have excess bonding agent used in the assembly process. While Remington has the utmost confidence in the design of the XMP trigger, it is undertaking this recall in the interest of consumer safety to remove any potential excess bonding agent applied in the assembly process.

HOW TO DETERMINE IF YOUR RIFLE IS SUBJECT TO THE RECALL: ....Basically, if your trigger has a SMOOTH trigger it is part of the recall. If the trigger is RIBBED, it is NOT. You can also enter your serial number in the website and check that way.

Thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately I have two 700s that are part of the recall.

I've got one but I had a trigger job done on it by a good gunsmith. I'm going to contact the smith and see what he says about repairing it. I know he wasn't at all impressed with the trigger as it came from the factory.

The sad part is this dates back to 2006. Where was there Quality control?

Re: Rem 700 and 7 Recall X-Mark Pro Triggers

I haven't had any trouble with my XMP triggers, so I had no reason to upgrade until now. I can't say I am wild about sending both of my 700s back through shipping. Maybe now would be the time to upgrade. Are other triggers such as Timmney drop in fit or is there modifications that would need to be made?

Re: Rem 700 and 7 Recall X-Mark Pro Triggers

Timneys are usually drop in. If anything, might need to take a small amount of stock material away. Never used another brand, but im sure most are drop in.

I called Remington because 2 of mine are on recall. Both have PacNor barrels. I asked if they would be looked at since they are not 100% factory. The Rep said its not a warranty issue, but safety recall. They look at 2 things, the serial number must be on the list, and the factory XMP trigger must be untouched. Figured id let y'all know in case someone has a semi custom and were not sure if they would qualify.

Re: Rem 700 and 7 Recall X-Mark Pro Triggers

I spoke to Remington today about the 700 vtr I bought last week. They stated that it will take approx two weeks to get the mail box to me then I will Ups it back to them and they could not give me a time frame for its return. I ask if it would be weeks or months and they stated they did not honestly know because of the amount they already had at the factory. I do not want a brand new rifle tied up for two months especially since I bought it for a hunt next month. I was told if I replaced the trigger with a aftermarket like Timney I would be better off. My problem is that everywhere I call is out of triggers for the 700s. Does anyone know where I can get a timney 510 so I don't have to send this rifle in? I have also been told that the recall is for over sealant used on the adjustment screws and can be fixed very easily without sending it in. Does anyone know how to check and fix this problem. Thanks
