It was on 60 minutes tonight about a 15 year old that killed his brother when the gun went off without pulling the trigger., in the model 700... I have one in 6MM, going to test fire it this week to see if mine has that issue...

The 60 minutes show last night presented some new cases of the "defective" trigger firing when safety is taken off. Nothing new; this allegation has been around for years. I have several old 700's with Mike Walker triggers, and no problems. But, there could be problems with some. Remington has numerous lawsuits on their hands with same alleged problem. I dunno what to think about the veracity of those allegations. What I do know is that Remington quality has been going downhill for about 10 years.
