ok once again.
the msnbc story is pure utter bullsht. there is nothing mechanically wrong with the remington 700. it is a story designed by msnbc who are anti-gun bigots to descredit americas largest and most successful rifle maker.
the only way that behavior can occur is by misadjusting the trigger system. if you turn the trigger adjustment screw beyound its lowest safe setting it will go off just as seen on that stupid show. set it back and it will function flawlessly.
i can duplicate that behaviour on my 700xcr by maladjusting the trigger. all it takes is a small screw driver and you dont even have to take the rifle stock off. thos rifles were rigged to do that on pupose by anti-gun bigots.
i highly recomend an xcr. the trigger is amazing. mine is a compact tactical with 40-x trigger aluminum bedded action free float barrel. i can get sub .5 moa when i really try at 100yds. it beats the crap out of brwning.
