Remington Recalls Some Model 700 and Model Seven Rifles Over Trigger Issue That Could Cause Unintentional Firing

Apr 15, 2014

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. Rifles equipped with these triggers can fire unintentionally.

Remington discovered that rifles equipped with the XMP trigger could fire unintentionally, which is a dangerous situation and could be fatal. This problem is specific to the XMP trigger only. Other Model 700 and Model Seven rifles are unaffected by this recall, reports. The company said rifles made after April 9, 2014 are not subject to recall.

According to the recall notice, the cause of the problem is “excess bonding agent being applied in the assembly process,” not the trigger itself. The purpose of the recall, the notice says, is “to remove any potential excess bonding agent.”

The XMP triggers can be identified by their smooth faces. Rifles with serrated trigger faces are not affected. Any rifle owner who thinks their rifle may be affected by this recall, should call Remington at 1.800. 243.9700 with the gun’s serial number, which is marked on the barrel at the receiver. Owners can also check the serial number at the recall web site: The company advises all owners to visit the web site and confirm whether their serial number is on the list of affected rifles.

If a rifle falls under the recall, the owner should not use or fire it, and Remington advises that these guns should not even be loaded. The company warns owners not to attempt to diagnose or repair the rifle on their own.
