Remington 700 - Dateline NBC episode

I know this has probably been beat to death on this forum...but, if you are a Remington 700 owner - I strongly suggest you watch this episode.

This is in regards to the falty trigger/safety (Walker) mechanism on those guns. There are a lot of deaths/injuries related to the gun firing when it shouldn't and you owe it to yourself to at least watch the episode. I know I've seen links to the show on here before - I finally watched it on TV the other night.

According to Remington - the defect in in 'approximately' 1% of the Remington 700s. That equates to tens of thousands of guns!

Have gun, will travel.

Not funny. Especially if you saw the episode.

I can tell you this...no child of mine will ever touch a Remington 700. And I don't want to be in a 'hunting party' with anyone carrying one either.

Re: Remington 700 - Dateline NBC episode

if you watched the episode then you need to go on remington tv website and watch remingtons rebuttal... look at both sides of the story, and like above poster said, you can always contact me to dispose of "dangerous" 700's

Re: Remington 700 - Dateline NBC episode

Beside all of the faulty 700's, be carefull of the;
HOT filling in McDonalds apple pies
Firestone tires
Tylanol asprin
Toyota gas pedals
and a million other products that a lawyer might be able to make a $$$ on.

As said before. KEEP THE MUZZLE POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION!!!

Good luck, Tony

Re: Remington 700 - Dateline NBC episode

if NBC Dateline reported it, it must be 100% accurate...

most, if not all media outlets are anti gun..
think about it.
