Default Remington 700

There is a special being aired tonight (Oct. 20) on Dish TV (CNBC), channel 208 at 9 p.m. ET. concerning safety problems.

I know, the deer are not safe around my Remington 700. Shoots clover leaf holes at 100 yards.

Coolest part is it does it without even being around the gun. Just gets bored and fires off a round.

What ever happened to not leaving a gun loaded?

Adjusting the trigger wrong, will do that.

YOu know, I watched this special. I have no idea why CNBC would try to dig up very old news like this and destroy remington.

I have modified several triggers so far on the 700. Yes, you can make that sear engagement very light and I can make it go off by hitting it with a rubber mallet. You can also not clean the trigger over years of use and over oiling with gunk and make the trigger unsafe. I believe this.

The only gripe I have is remington charged money to retrofit the triggers several years ago.

when I adjust a trigger, I littlerly beat the living daylights out of it with a rubber mallet.
