Thank’s for the heads up
I love my Remington VTR and will get another 700 in the near future!
I purchased the 700 VTR 223 in 2009, fired about 400 rounds (rough figure). I am going to the range in tomorrow (weather permitting, i.e. if thunderstorms, outdoor range is closed).
Remington 700 VTR has the REmington X-Mark Pro trigger, from the CNBC report is the new trigger assembly. http://www.snipercentral.com/vtr.htm
I think everyone is going to look at this situation. CNBC report is very scary!
The three most common scenarios for the fire control to malfunction are:
- When the user moves the safety switch from the "safe" mode to the "fire" mode
- When the user loads a new round into the breech (Fire closing the bolt)
- When the user cycles the bolt to eject a spent casing (Fire opening the bolt)
