Sadly, Rem turned out guns with a problem, and turned out millions of them. In this day and age any gunmaker doesn't have to make a big mistake, since the antis will pursue even the smallest problem to the max.
If you recall, the antis sued and destroyed almost all the small, struggling handgun makers, right out of business.
Sure, some of those guns were junk, but there happened to be some that were good guns also, but the antis didn't care, they just wanted to destroy.
My LGS owner says if Rem were require to rework or replace every bolt action in their 700 series, it could destroy Remington financially, because of the numbers out there in circulation.
I hope this is not a "heads up" of more problems down the road.
