A buddy of mine just purchased a Rem M700, stainless, in 270WSM. After a range trip resulting in 4-5 inch groups at 100 yards, with commercial Fed 150gr Nosler partitions as ammo, it was obvious it needed some love in the trigger assembly. Knowing Rem will not warranty its triggers if messed with, i informed my buddy of this and he and I felt compelled to adjust the trigger. I have adjusted two Rem triggers, one on my Model Seven and one on my M700, boy do they shoot good with 3 lb pull each. Nice. so, we begin to loosen the three srews of adjustments as per snipercountry.com instructions, as I had used before. Once all three screws were backed out... a small bar of metal fell out of the bottom of the trigger, along with a little spring!! So....now he can not have his Rem M700 fixed under warranty, right?! So he is considering ordering a Timney trigger to insert.
ANY thoughts? Anyone else have this type of trigger issue?
According to the REm website his rifle was likely made in 2005. Its the only year the 270WSM was made for Rem M700 evidently. So, maybe it sat on the shelf and folks dry fired it for four years trying to decide whether to buy it or not? Or maybe it came broke from the factory?
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
