Remington has a new trigger for 2006

The February 2006 Predator Xtreme magazine (just got it yesterday) has an article on Remington's new trigger for the Model 700/7 for 2006. Pretty interesting. They say it is "an entirely new fire control system"....

Re: Remington has a new trigger for 2006

What are the details? How does the new trigger differ from the old?

Yeah! The "bean counters" came up with a way to save 15 cents per copy and now they're marketing to those that won't know the difference between good or bad!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Maybe the "Bean counters" listened to all the experts on this forum, and changed the triggers (that all the experts on this forum) have been bithching about. They changed the evil J-lock didn't they? Give "Big Green" a chance.

The Bean Counters don't build the triggers, the Lawyers do. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Remington has a new trigger for 2006

First from reading the article it sounds like it was the lawyers who inspired the new trigger. Remington is calling it the "SPL for "Safety Pivoted Link" the new trigger unit looks remarkably similar to the original, but differs in one major element: the safety blocks movement of both the trigger and sear."

Seems there is an issue with the existing Reminton triggers in that if the safety is on and you pull the trigger, the trigger has to fully return to position or the gun will fire when the safety is released. The trigger may potentially hang/bind on the inside of the stock or something and not fully return to position leaving you in danger when you release the safety.

"Remington makes several claims for the new trigger, among them:

1) improved out-of-the-box feel,
2) better corrosion resistance,
3) more highly-polished parts to provide a crisper pull, and
4) lower pull settings from the factory.

Though trigger tampering still voids the warranty, the trigger pull can be adjusted down to 2 lbs. if done by an authorized Remington Repair Center."
