Remington Arms announces voluntary recall of two rifles

(WKTV) - According to the Business Wire, Remington Arms has announced a voluntary recall of Model 700 and Model Seven rifles manufactured from May 1, 2006 to April 9, 2014, Saturday.
Senior Engineers at Remington determined that some of the rifles with X-Mark Pro (XMP) triggers could, under certain circumstances, unintentionally discharge due to the presence of excess bonding agent used in the assembly process.

Remington has since advised customers to immediately cease use of recalled rifles and return them to Remington free of charge.

The rifles will be inspected, specialty cleaned, tested, and returned as soon as possible.

They are also advising that no owners attempt to diagnose or repair recalled rifles.

Just FYI.

The 700 is a renowned long range rifle capable of accurate 600 yd shots…maybe more.

I’m glad to hear that remmington is being proactive in this; safety should always come first when it comes to weapons.
