If you own a 700 (or 7) you should know about . . .
Mine is affected, too. Wonder if there is a local armoror that can do the repairs...

I pulled my XMark trigger out not long after getting my new 700 about 3 years ago as I could not get it to adjust at all, it now wears a timney trigger that is very user friendly.... So, I would think this should fix the issue from what I read?
When asked what state I live in I say "The State of Confusion", better known as IL....
Wild West I believe is a Remington warrantee center. I wonít fool with adjusting/altering Remington triggers, I replace them with a well designed trigger like Timney.
Another thing I recommend is getting a safety that is on the bolt itself.
The trigger block safety on a bolt action is not a very great idea in my book, it relies on the fitment of too many parts to be a very positive safety system. Midway has the Winchester type 3 position bolt shrouds for Rem 700 on sale right now for $109. Put both a Timney trigger and a bolt mounted safety on a 700 and you have about as good a push feed bolt action rifle as money can buy.
Thanks alot AD! Mine is good!
If we all agreed....this would be no fun
Mine is "affected". The funny thing is my buddy bought his Rem 700 tactical only a few weeks ago and it is infected as well.
Well in reality not funny at all. Can places like Sportsman's still legally sell these with the active recall going on?
The recall only came out a week ago on April 9 2014 so looks like your buddy got in just under the wire.
Folks- please take this seriously. I had Andy change the trigger on a rifle for me last year because it would fire as the bolt was closing. It would not do this when the trigger was set on the heaviest setting but otherwise would and I noticed it before ever loading it (thank goodness). When I read about other rifles discharging for no apparent reason- I didn't give much credence until it happened to me. Better safe than sorry!
Same in Fairbanks, Sportsman's only had the 770 and other Remingtons not a 700 in sight.

I will have him check his receipt for a date. Thanks for the info.
Smokey and AD, rather than be without my rifle for the summer, I think your solution is the best. Can't go wrong with a Timney trigger!
If I ever decide to use my LTR for something besides bench work then it will have to have something different for a trigger. Mine is way to light to be comfortable with as a hunting rifle.
Thanks for the heads up. I wanted to change the trigger on my 5-R any ways.
Sigh. Mine is sick.
I'll be sending it back as I will never use Wild West.
Too many bad experiences there.
