I have had enough of the faulty Remingtons apart to know that someone with tinkeritis had messed with them causing the problem. They all come from the factory with a small dab of varnish type stuff in the three adjustment holes. If that stuff ain't there then someone screwed with them. All of the problematic ones that came into Keith's Gun shop had the sealant missing and usually had more visible Bubba marks present as well.

The recalls resulting from the class action suit was nothing more than damage control to put an end to the media frenzy that started out on the www. Nobody will ever make me believe it was anything more than that!

It meant for you and Lloyd to stop arguing over the validity of the issue.

I gave the real history of the trigger issue from a person who has been using them since the mid 60s and I've owned well over 100 of them, exact number long since lost to my memory. I've known folks who just had to tinker with screws they didn't understand on that trigger and made a mess of their guns.

Adjusting trigger pull weight is all that was ever needed on any of mine and when done I sealed it back just as the factory had. The sear engagement adjustment screw was perhaps a mistake on Remington's part. If it's there some idiots are gonna play with it. Too many folks fancy themselves a gunsmith. My cousin is a prime example. I hate to even be on a range with him. he thinks he's a trigger smith no matter what the gun he is gonna fiddle with it until it is unsafe to use. It's folks like him who cost Remington so much money on this trigger issue.

Comments from folks knowledgeable of the truth of the issue are welcome. Speculation based on hearsay is of little value.

Further discussion is pointless, please advise LLoyd of it.

mike$ - I'm sure Lloyd is aware of it. GB is just telling you in a nice way, to stop with the personal insults.

"You are entitled to your own opinions, but you are not entitled to your own facts." - Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan

When you allow a lie to go unchallenged, it becomes the truth.

A statement of fact: H&R Huntsman & Sidekick blued barrels are made of 4140 steel.

The fact that the author of that link was smoking crack or paid by gun producers to push there products. the FACT that rem 700s are one of the best rifles ever made! The fact that it is the best selling bolt action sporting rifle ever produced. The fact that it is the bolt action rifle that saved more American lives since ww2 then all the others combined. In fact the rifle that has won more competitive shooting sports then all other bolt guns combined. FACTS that anyone who really knows guns knows
