    I purchased a Remington model 721 and the trigger was stuck would fire when needed, so I sold it to a gun store due to we used for hunting and it would freeze and we did not know when it would fire’

  2. heather grantt says:

    Had to get rid of mine.

  3. Tabatha Livingston says:

    I got a Remington but it was bought for my Dad in 1986…These are not the ones I hope.

    • KURT BARHYDT says:

      better call remington and give them your serial # if you still own gun. my model 700 was manuf in 1962 and has the old walker stye trigger assembly in it. so any rifle manufactured before april 2015 has the bad triggers in them. walker triggers are in rifles manuf before april 2006. better wait till court awards settlement, then remington has to fix for free.

  4. Matthew Colabella says:

    i’ve owned a remington 700 and it had accidentally went off before. reason i got rid of it.

  5. Daniel Mcgraw says:

    I got rid of mine after all of the news reports came out. I had a 700… It was a damn good gun but I started to fear taking it in to the woods after so many reports came out. But the one that made me trade it in was watching it on the SPEC. OPS training video.

    • KURT BARHYDT says:

      should have kept it and let remington replace it for free. i’m keeping mine but not using it till they replace the old walker trigger for free.

  6. Raymond Chappell says:

    I own a model 700. Replaced the trigger with a Timney Trigger after several miss firings. I saved the old trigger and the cost of the new trigger. Can I be reimbursed for my cost?

    ADMIN – Hi Raymond,

    From what I see model 700 is included in the settlement and you can get a refund for a trigger replacement if you replaced the trigger with an X-Mark Pro trigger mechanism.

    • KURT BARHYDT says:

      i don’t believe you had to replace the old walker or old x mark pro trigger with the new x mark pro one. any cost incured from any type trigger replacement is covered. check with remington to be sure.

  7. Ryan Hulett says:

    I own a 700 and replaced the trigger with an X-Mark. It was very finicky when it would fire, so I did my research on cause and replaced the trigger assembly. It is my favorite long gun but damn scary when I first got it!

    ADMIN – Hi Ryan,

    Submit your claim for your refund on trigger replacement.

  8. patrick flanigan says:

    ADMIN – Hi Patrick,

    • KURT BARHYDT says:

      ADMIN – Hi Kurt,

      Thanks for supporting fellow gun owners. Your comments have proven to be super useful.

  9. Derek Eftink says:

    My Remington SPS Tactical first fired on its own when going from Saftey to Fire without any trigger manipulation. I was dry firing on the floor and had a big WTF moment like did that really just happen? I did replicate it about 2-3 more times while dry firing in the living room. Many months past and thousands of rounds and never an issue, until I stepped out into the cold for a hunt. I switched from saftey to fire and BAM the gun went off as it lay across my lap. I threw that peice of shit down and should have never picked it back up.

  10. Rob says:

    I have three Remington Model 700 rifles I bought new from a Remington Factory Rep about 1974-75. I understand there are at least two (and perhaps three) versions of triggers that were installed by Remington..the Walker Trigger and its replacement the X-Mark Pro. Everything I find on this subject refers to subject units manufactured between 2006 and 2014.

    Question: Was there a subject trigger in Remington Model 700 rifles PRIOR to the Walker Trigger and X-Mark Pro designs that is Not Involved in subject issues-suits?

    ADMIN – Hi Rob,
    I am not a weaponry expert but based on the way the settlement describes the rifles involved I have the feeling there might have been some 700 rifles not involved in the settlement. I encourage you to visit forums related to arms to find out what other users are saying. In the interim I will contact the admin with your question to see if we can get additional direction.

  11. KURT BARHYDT says:

    i have a model 700 manufactured in 1962. it has the old walker trigger in it. not using it until remington is court ordered to recall and fix for free with newest version x mark pro trigger. the new pro trigger was installed in guns after april 2014. not sure how far back remington rifles go when they started using the walker trigger. to my knowledge its rifles with the old walker or the xmark pro fom april 2006 till april 2014.

  12. KURT BARHYDT says:

    if your guns are manufactured in 74-75 they have the walker style trigger and should be replaced under the recall with the new x mark pro.

  13. dan martin says:

    model 700 with that should have been replaced under recall
