Remington has announced a voluntary safety recall of Model 700 and Model Seven rifles with X-Mark Pro, or XMP triggers manufactured between May 1, 2006 and April 9, 2014.
Any rifles made after April 9, 2014 are not subject to recall.
Remington discovered that rifles equipped with the XMP trigger can fire unintentionally. This is very dangerous and potentially fatal if not addressed. This problem is specific to the XMP trigger only. All other Model 700 and Model Seven rifles are unaffected by this recall.
The cause of the problem is “excess bonding agent being applied in the assembly process,” not the trigger itself.
“While Remington has the utmost confidence in the design of the XMP trigger, it is undertaking this recall in the interest of consumer safety to remove any potential excess bonding agent applied in the assembly process,” states the recall notice.
The XMP triggers can be identified by their smooth faces. Rifles with serrated trigger faces are not affected.
