Q. Is my firearm unsafe? Do I need to stop using my firearm?

Model 700 and Model Seven rifles with X-Mark Pro triggers manufactured from May 1, 2006, to April 9, 2014, could, under certain circumstances, unintentionally discharge. A Remington investigation has determined that some X-Mark Pro triggers might have excess bonding agent used in the assembly process. While Remington has the utmost confidence in the design of the X-Mark Pro trigger, it has undertaken a Product Safety Recall in the interest of consumer safety to replace these triggers with new X-Mark Pro triggers.
