I don't completely blame the rifle(s) for doing it. But I have seen and been behind one that went off "by it's self."
I'm not to sure if any of of have seen the video or not, but there's one where someone in uniform (cop) pulls the trigger, has nothing happen and then he just barely touches the bolt causing the gun to discharge. I've had the same thin happen to me once, so has the owner I the rifle.
I also blame this on the fact the rifle is older then the gun registry was/is and that this same guy doesn't take the greatest care of his rifles. By at the same time, he said he's cleaned it and raised the trigger weight. I fired it twice after he claim to of done this and the trigger was a good bit heavier. About a week or so after firing it I got a message from him saying "the 7 is doing it again."
Like I said, it could be the age, but I know Remington did replace triggers in some of their 700s at one point.
