Remington Arms Company, LLC (“Remington”) is voluntarily recalling Remington Model 700™ and Model Seven™ rifles which were manufactured from May 1, 2006 through April 9, 2014 and which have an X-Mark Pro® (“XMP®”) trigger. All product manufactured after April 9, 2014 is not subject to recall.

Yup, ALL Remington Model 700 and Model Seven rifles with X-Mark Pro® triggers, manufactured between May 1, 2006 and April 9, 2014 are being recalled. Why? Because according to Remington, some of these rifles may have had excessive amounts of bonding agent applied to their trigger assemblies.
While Remington stands by the XMP trigger design, they say they are acting out of an abundance of caution and recalling all such rifles. You’ll want to look at the actual recall notice itself for details. but, they have created a dedicated website and hotline for the recall.

- Hotline: 1.800.243.9700 (Option 3, then 1) M-F, 9am-5pm Eastern
Remington is providing free return and service of the rifles. Details are provided via the website and help desk. Per Remington’s statement, do not attempt to fix or diagnose the rifle yourself. Owners are asked to stop using their rifles immediately and contract Remington to arrange return and service. Again, this is FREE. My own Remington 700 SPS Varminter is under recall and will be headed back to Remington soon.
