Remember that Remington trigger recall?

I got an e-mail exactly 2 months after requesting the return label and box. E-mail has attachment for return label.

"The box to return your firearm should be arriving in approximately 5 to 7 business days."

It will have taken 9 weeks for paper work and box. How long for actual physical inspection and return?

I won't be shipping it back, think it will keep the rifle into the fall hunts. Will replace the trigger myself.

Re: Remember that Remington trigger recall?

Yeah, I've pretty much convinced myself that I can throw the trigger in the miscellaneous metal recycling container. I've already replaced it with a Timney and I figure it's more trouble than it's worth to ship stuff back to Remington.
But I'm certainly gonna trash it so it's not in circulation (e.g selling it to someone else) where it could cause an accident.

I tried to explain to everybody why it was stupid to send it back... It will be better in the long run just to spend the $220 on a Jewell.

Just got my box yesterday, even though I'd replaced the X-Pro with a Timney long ago.
Will probably disable/trash the old one as the poster above did.

Re: Remember that Remington trigger recall?

Just 1 more of the many reasons I don't buy Remington rifles. .

When I discovered what a piece of junk the X Mark Pos was I replaced mine with a Shilen. So tho the rifle still didn't shoot very good and it still jammed 1 out of 4 times at least turning the shot loose was enjoyable.

On the flip side I liked both the stainless synthetic 7 RM and 338 RUM that I had. Both model 700 s. Tho the triggers weren't real light, around 3.5 lbs they were very reliable and safe.

Re: Remember that Remington trigger recall?

Recalls cost time and money and are sometimes not worth the trouble if it is not to major.

In have been lucky, I have never had a problem with factory triggers except there inability to
be adjusted (To a safe weight)in some cases and there quality of operation.

I'm not just talking about Remington's ether. Some factory triggers have been terrible and some have been very good and have never been replaced.

With the bad ones it is simple, I just replace them with ether a good factory trigger or a good aftermarket trigger.

Just like a lemon car, it will not get better after a trip to the dealership so it is replaced as soon
as I can.

Just like Mudrunner said "Replace It"

Just my opinion
