don't bet the farm on that statement! If you do your gonna loose it. I have a 700 that's fired when the saftey is let off several times (on it's third trigger now, and so far this one hasn't in about 200 rounds). There's also about a dozen people that could testify to this as well if we could bring them back from the grave. I think the problem is not just the trigger alone, but a combination of the saftey design and the trigger group itself. Mike Walker discovered this problem many many years ago and suggested a redesign at Remington, and they never followed thru (Mr. Walker designed the 722, 40x, 700, and maybe the 600 series).
yes there is a problem

no, i am not involved with any sporting goods manufacturer other than i buy and use their products.
Mike Walker found the problem at the factory, and if anybody knows the design he does as it was his design
