Re: Brand New Remington X Mark Pro Trigger Malfunction
Lots of Remington 700s do this to some extent. If you take your other rifle and push forward on the bolt, as you try to reset the firing pin, I bet you will find the same thing.
The bolt needs to move slightly to the rear to allow the cocking piece to to catch on the sear. I don't see it as being much of a problem as the bolt has to be pulled back to chamber a round anyway. But if you feel that the tolerances have stacked up and things truly aren't right, call Remington or take it to a gunsmith.
