The thread "I just fucking shot myself" led me to search the internet for some information I had previously seen on telly as an hourlong documentary. This news item is just over a year old but still valid. If any ARRSEr owns - or knows anyone who owns - a Remington 700, kindly pass this along to them and possibly save a limb or a life. Press Release - Remington 700 Rifles Pose Dangerous Risk to Consumers A Remington engineer sussed out the problem decades ago and notified management, but they refused to take proper action. It was estimated that at the time the "fix" would have cost less then $1 per rifle. ------------------- As an interesting aside to one of the court cases, a Remington factory engineer was in the witness box and handed the exhibit (rifle). In an effort to impress the jury as to the safety of the weapon, he worked the bolt and it dry fired. He certainly did impress the jury with that display.
