Remington Model 700 and Model 7 Recall
On April 11, 2014, Remington Arms Company announced a voluntary recall of their popular Model 700 and Model Seven rifles with X-Mark Pro (“XMP”) triggers. The rifles affected by this recall were manufactured from May 1, 2006 to April 9, 2014. This series of firearm has been manufactured by Remington since 1962. It is available in many different calibers from .17 Remington all the way up to .458 Winchester Magnum. This rifle remains in service internationally with NATO forces and Law Enforcement. The Whiskey Delta Gulf is sharing this recall notice in the interest of safety.
From the Remington Website:
"Remington’s investigation determined that some XMP triggers might have excess bonding agent used in the assembly process, which could cause an unintentional discharge. Therefore, Remington is recalling ALL affected products to fully inspect and clean the XMP triggers with a specialized process. Remington has advised customers to immediately cease use of recalled rifles and return them to Remington free of charge. The rifles will be inspected, specialty cleaned, tested, and returned as soon as possible. Do not attempt to diagnose or repair recalled rifles. Remington established a dedicated website and toll-free hotline to help consumers determine whether their Model 700 or Model Seven rifle(s) are subject to recall.
The website and hotline provide guidance on returning recalled rifles free of charge."
