Guess you were not quite as lucky, sorry to hear that. If that is a new rifle I would have Rem. make it good if it was me. Good luck, let us know what you come up with.

That is great and I'm happy for you.

On a side note: Remington should take care of everything, including freight both ways if, after their inspection, it truelly was a problem before they shipped it out, JMO. Customer service in the world seems to be getting worse, not better.

I can see where you're coming from in that it is only going to cost a minor amount to get the problem resolved but quite frankly - Remington's poor manufacturing/assembly/inspection caused the problem so they should stand the burden of all costs.

Overall I hope everything turns out well and all the frustration subsides.

Re: help, bolt not wanting to come out

Can I ask what type of Remington 700 and caliber???

I have a great friend with the exact issue... his is a 7mm Rem... SPS. Wondering if by chance it would be the same for him or a "run" in Remy's production that maybe just passed the QC folks.

Thanks for the info.
