Only a thief could get my Remingtons from me. Dollar for dollar only the Winchester model 70 of yesteryear could rival the 700. My 700 mountain rifle in 270 win is a dream combo. I've never had any issues with Remington products. The model 760 I have in 30-06 is a deer getting machine and after destroying the stock I put 7600 stocks on it and like it better now. Pretty much a Ford, Chevy, Dodge issue to me.

And therein lies the flaw in your entire argument. It's not a known defect, or the recall wouldn't be voluntary. It's a suspected flaw that may (or, therefore rationally, may not) affect many of the rifles made during this time period of the voluntary recall.

And besides a totally flawed argument, if the rifle is never loaded, with a finger on the trigger, and pointed where it shouldn't be pointed, then no harm can come to any of my sons, daughters, friends, relatives, associates, or anyone standing close by. You are simply letting emotion influence your argument because your logic isn't supportive by the facts of the recall, or of firearms safety.

Default I will say the obvious- WE ARE ALL FRIENDS HERE...

It is fine to disagree with the need to return a weapon back to the Manufacturer. I have seen other forums where the Members don't respect each other, that is NOT a problem in this forum. I would be honored to share a hunting trip with any Member of this group. Cheer up, the weather is finally breaking and we can get some range time in.

Karl, I was thinking the same thing. The weather break has me thinking about several guns that need sighted in. I also need to see how all the bones have healed???

Please make sure to check with your Doc on how much shooting you should be doing, some bones can take longer to heal,
I'm afraid to think about the hurt a continued recoil could cause.

I don't think we reached any point of disrespect, just disagreement in what the actual recall entailed.

I wish! Black bear has been calling my name but I've got almost two weeks on the arctic North Slope of Alaska for inspections in the oil fields looking at me starting tomorrow. At least I should be able to eye-ball some caribou and muskox. No hunting allowed, however ....

Default 700 recall

I bought a new Remi 700 in march of 2014. It's not a volintary recall. I went on line to check out the serial #. Mines on the list, They said, Do not shoot it. Remi sent me a box to send it back in, paid shipping, free repair. They are in a law suite. At least they are making good on a great rifle. Time wait for return is any were from 3-6 weeks. From what Remi said , they think problem has to do with epoxy build up on a trigger componant. When it gets cold out, it contracts and causes the rifle to go off when you flip the saftey off to shoot. I still like Remi's.

I still like Remmie's too, and it's still a voluntary recall. I checked my trigger and see no signs of any epoxy anywhere. Common safe gun handling habits will do for me.

Talking Recall

I know ,but if you go to the site and your serial # shows up. They will tell you to send it in and stop shooting it. I never shot mine, but if there checking them and fixing them for nothing, I'm in. I like better safe than sorry, when it comes to weapon's. I'll get a new boyd's stock for it while they have it. Never liked the plastic one. Good luck.

Yea, thought about that except for the hassle of dismounting the scope and then re-sighting it in upon return. Especially if there's truly no issue, as I found on mine. They just gave a date-range of serial #'s that could be affected, it doesn't mean that every rifle is affected. That's why it was a voluntary recall and not a mandatory safety recall.
