Law Shield would like to alert our members that Remington Arms Company, LLC is voluntarily recalling Remington Model 700 and Model Seven rifles with X-Mark Pro (“XMP”) triggers, manufactured from May 1, 2006 to April 9, 2014.
If you own these Remington models, stop using your rifle until you’ve determined if it’s in the recall. Rifles will be inspected, specialty cleaned, tested, and returned as soon as possible, at no cost to you. The company asks that shooters do not attempt to diagnose or repair recalled rifles.
Remington has determined that some Model 700 and Model Seven rifles with XMP triggers could, under certain circumstances, unintentionally discharge. A Remington investigation has determined that some XMP triggers might have excess bonding agent used in the assembly process. While Remington has the utmost confidence in the design of the XMP trigger, it is undertaking this recall in the interest of consumer safety to remove any potential excess bonding agent applied in the assembly process.
Only Model 700 and Model Seven rifles with XMP triggers are being recalled. To determine if your rifle is subject to this recall:
Find the rifle’s serial number where the barrel meets the receiver, either on the left or right side of the receiver.
Identify the serial number and provide it to Remington’s recall support team, either by entering it at xmprecall.remington.com or call 1-800-243-9700 (Prompt #3 then Prompt #1) Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT. You will be informed if your rifle is affected by this recall and supported with free resources to return the rifle for inspection and specialized cleaning.
You may also determine if your rifle is subject to the recall by a visual inspection. If the face of the trigger is ribbed, your rifle does not have an XMP trigger and is NOT subject to this recall.
If the face of the trigger is smooth, your rifle has an XMP trigger and IS subject to this recall.
