Remington 700 and Model Seven Rifles May Pose a Risk of Unintentional Firing Due to Trigger Problems.SEE IF YOU QUALIFY FOR COMPENSATION
MANUFACTURER: Remington Arms Company
OVERVIEW: On April 11, 2014, Remington announced a recall that impacts certain Model 700 and Model Seven Remington rifles with the X-Mark Pro (XMP) triggers. At that time, the gun maker acknowledged that the triggers on the blot-action rifles may have been assembled with too much bonding agent, which could cause the rifles to unintentionally discharge.
While the recall affects only Remington Rifles with XMP triggers, which were manufactured from May 1, 2006 through April 9, 2014, reports have suggested that older rifles may also experience unintentional firings, including rifles with the Walker Fire Control system, which has been used in more than five million rifles since 1948.
The Remington recall directs consumers to return the rifles to the manufacturer for cleaning and inspection. However, a number of individual injury and class action lawsuits over Remington Rifle unintentional firings have been brought in courts throughout the U.S.
Critics say that Remington has known since at least 1979, with about one percent of all Model 700 rifles prone to fire unexpectedly without the trigger being pulled. The company recalled the Model 600 series in 1978 for similar problems, saying that it had a 55.9% failure rate.
FIND OUT IF YOU QUALIFY FOR A REMINGTON MODEL 700 LAWSUIT: As a result of the manufacturer’s failure to warn gun owners of the dangerous condition of these rifles, financial compensation may be available to those who were injured due to Remington Model 700 accidental discharges.

There were three people beside the person holding the gun standing a few feet from the where the bullet hit. It damaged my garage. We also have footage of the group as they walked into the garage and as they walked out of the garage holding their ears as they walked out of the garage a few minutes later. We only learned about the lawsuits this weekend as we looked up the gun. We are stunned that no one was injured or killed. We have a picture of the damage in my garage.
