I have a few affected. There are quite a few rifles affected and I'm concerned about the repair time frame.

I have 700 VTR .223, I have fired over a 1000+ rounds, only issue is more feeding required. Being a bolt action rifle, only time a round is load in the chamber is getting ready to fire and muzzle is down range.

I do not keep a round chamber on my bolt action rifles.

This model has magazine well; but, no magazines are made for this rifle.

Although the description of the reason for recall is that "some XMP triggers might have excess bonding agent used in the assembly process" it isn't really clear how to identify this problem ourselves.

It seems that there should be some info for those that need to get the problem fixed.

But it looks like they specifically day we shouldn't.

well i got three of them that came up! none of which have ever malfunctioned in the least. two of the them have a couple thousand rounds through them and have never exhibited any problems and even have had the triggers adjusted. hmmmmmm........... a person would think if there was a problem witt them, that it would have showed up by now.

one of them is a bare M700 action for a build that is going to get an aftermarket trigger anyways.

This recall is basically straight across the board. They're seeing what is happening to the GM situation with ignition switch failure and not taking any changes.

Look at Toyota and Volkswagen as well, different problem; but, something has them spooked.

Ruger has recall as well:
http://www.ruger.com/micros/recall/index.html

My 700 VTR .223 has 1000+ rounds and took the rifle to the range today, fired only 32 rounds - winds were starting to crank up.

The issue is this rifle has a fancy for HSM .223 55 grain ammo. I shoot other ammo; but, HSM has become the choice round.

Well,this sucks. Just got a 700 SPS Tactical 223 5 days before the recall,mine is on the list based on serial number. I just paper punch 1 round at a time so I intend to use/try it. An aftermarket trigger was in the thought process when I got it,so that'll probably happen.

I would send the gun in for refitting anyway. Ruger admits to problems with the trigger assembly but they do not say what all is replaced once they get the gun.
