Re: How to adjust the new Remington 700 X-Mark Pro trigger
I know this is an old thread but I wanted to post my recent experience with this trigger. I recently purchased a Remington 5 R 300 win mag and was very disapointed in the trigger. My trigger was factory set at about 6 pounds. I attempted to adjust it down and it would only go down to just under 5 pounds. I have a good friend who also purchased an identical rife and his was factory set at 3 pounds. This tells me that its a hit or miss with this trigger. I believe that between law suits and the company that own Remington and other firearms and related product wanting to make as much as they can have not done a good job in producing quality guns. The last Remington I purchased prior to this gun was a Remington BDL in 338 mag and it came with a real POS stock, the injected molded hollow one. I tried to do something with it, filling it with foam etc but gave up and purchased an HR precision stock for it and now its a good gun. The financial group that owns Remington also owns Marlin, and my good friend had one, in 45-70. He has read that there was some problems with them and upon inspection found that the reciever under the front hand guard was missing a piece of metal, there was burrs and machinery marks on interior parts and was off when attempting to sight the gun in. I will give Remington credit, they did replace the rifle, but how did this gun leave the factory like this? Iam afraid that the bottom line is driving Remington more then producing a quality product.
