Remington Rifles are recalling two different rifles for potential trigger issues and unintentional discharge.
The rifles include the Remington Model 700 and the Remington Model Seven rifles with X-Mark Pro triggers, manufactured from May 1, 2006 to April 9, 2014.
The company says that their investigation determined that some of the triggers might have excess bonding agent used in the assembly process, which could cause the unintentional discharge.
Customers are urged to stop using the rifles and return them to Remington free of charge. The rifles will then be inspected, specialty cleaned, tested and returned as soon as possible.
There are two ways to determine if your rifle is one of the recalled rifles. The first is to find the rifles serial number, which is located on the left side for right-handed rifles and on the right for left-handed rifles. Then, go to xmprecall.remington.com or call 1-800-243-9700 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and give them the serial number.
You can also check your trigger. If the trigger is smooth, then it is the XMP trigger and is being recalled. If the trigger is ribbed, it is not the XMP trigger and is not subject to recall.
