Remington Issues Recalls on 2 Rifles

by Steve Galea | June 4, 2014

Remington has voluntarily recalled Model 700 rifles and Model Seven rifles manufactured between May 1, 2006 and April 9, 2014.

A potential assembly issue with the X-Mark Pro trigger mechanisms in some Model Sevens and 700s produced during this period could result in unintentional discharge. Remington is advising owners to immediately stop using affected rifles until they have confirmed the safety issue has been resolved.

If you own one of these rifles, go to the Remington website and enter the serial number to determine if your firearm is subject to the recall. The website is: http://xmprecall.remington.com/. Owners can also call the toll free number at 1-800-243-9700 (prompt 3 then prompt 1)

How to Find the Serial Number
The rifle’s serial number is located where the barrel meets the receiver (for a right handed rifle, the serial number is located on a user’s left, and for a left handed rifle, the serial number is located on a user’s right).

Remington says it has changed and improved the assembly process for the X-Mark Pro trigger since discovering the assembly problem. Firearms produced after April 9, 2014 are not subject to the recall.
