We borrowed a friends Remington 700 for last weeks sheep hunt and we had problem with the bolt always wanting to open. I knew about this before hand but didn't think it would be an issue but it eventually got to a point where the wife had to carry it inside her back pack. We really liked this rifle and she shot it well so we had been considering buying one for her but with this issue with the bolt we may have to look at something different. Personally I own several Winchesters and love them but wanted something different for her. I do know all about the 2 position safety and thats why the bolt opens but is there any way to fix this problem through a gunsmith or is it just a quirk with Remingtons?
