I have read the problem is that the rifles are not drop safe. Could be other problems also.

Just spoke to the Remington rep mins ago. Asked if i could just send back the trigger by itself as i had installed aftermarket parts like stock, trigger, scope and etc.
He said they need the whole rifle as in original form back. I'm not going to take it apart and put them all back with the original parts. Too lazy for that.
At the end of conversation the rep asked for my full name and add.
Told him "no thx, i don't feel like giving it to you".

i always do a drop test as part of the safety check after adjusting the trigger. (all my M700's have the triggers adjusted lower)

i seriously doubt Ruger is going to replace the trigger assembly on his Remington rifle.

I looked at the recall info even though I replaced the trigger with a Timney a couple weeks ago, Seems the triggers with a ribbed shoe are not affected, only the smooth ones. I don't know why Remington can't get past their trigger problems, even with the "New and Improved" X Mark Pro. The Timney is sweet, I got the one with left hand safety included. Goes down to 1.5 lbs. but I set it at 2 lbs. for now. My stock Remington trigger is now a paperweight on the desk.

My 700 VTR .223 has been knocked over and dropped a few times on the butt stock. I do not keep a round chamber of any of the bolt actions, unless getting ready to shoot down range or hunting.

My 700 is on the recall list based on serial number.

I too have read the recall notification, nothing about replacement

Immediately cease use of recalled rifles and return them to Remington free of charge. Rifles will be inspected, specialty cleaned, tested, and returned as soon as possible, at no cost to you. DO NOT attempt to diagnose or repair recalled rifles.

Can Remington legally catalog serial numbers to owners to be used as future registration? I wouldnt be surprised if the feds raided Remington in two years to get this information. After all, these rifles are the base for the military "sniper" rifle, and I quote president Obama "military grade weapons don't belong on our streets".

Default Remington 700

My son's Remington 700 in .308 is affected by this recall, but it states further that it is only for United States consumers.

Should I remove the scope when I send it in?
