No I did not keep my defective Remingtons just so I could "prove" anything later, but I assure you this is no internet rumor it happened to me, and two of them were Remington 700s if I were talking about cheap @$$ 770s I got what I paid for but for a SPS and a CDL I paid for a better produce then that. The CDL would not chamber a round, simply would not push it in, tried several types of ammo, Remington claimed they fixed it and still had the same problem. The SPS was rusting the week I took it out the plastic, despite my regular cleanings/oiling like I give all my other guns (I know how to care for a rifle I have done this before) Well long story short within just a few months is was borderline unusable, rust was so deep I was not comfortable shooting 7mm Rem mag through it. You could chalk all of these up to really bad luck, but I will swear it on a polygraph it is all true. My brothers high dollar R1 was simply garbage, shot a $299 el-chepo 1911 that I consider a vastly superior weapon at leased it cycled. The Remington just would not feed the next round, not with any gr load, 1911s are reliable by their nature I don't know how Remington managed to screw that one up. How bad was it, it never made it through a 7rd mag without jamming at leased twice even after the factory rebuild. I will see if he still has his receipt from when he sent it back to them and where he sold it a few weeks later if that will help you. As I said too many gun makers who still make good firearms to waste another cent on a Remington because if nothing else I am having the world's worst luck with them.
