Default Remington 700

Have y'all ever seen the investigative report on the defected safety on the early Model 700?

A buddy of mines wife had a 700 that did that. Shot at a deer, racked another round in and it discharged without her finger on the trigger. I've heard of it happening to others, but I've also heard Remington continues to claim user error. I'm pretty sure there was a Youtube video floating around at some point where a guys factory unmodified 700 was firing randomly when he would close the bolt

Nope, read my original post Grasshopper. I knew about the problems, just never saw the investigative report.

Last link doesn't work...

The 700 has been under fire for the better part of 25 years.

Have several Remington shotguns but I don't think I own one of their rifles. If I do, it would be a 22.
