    My name is Laura and I do digital work for Remington. If you're looking for a credible source, check out Remington's response to the CNBC program: Remington

    I also saw it. Wow!!!!!! They had some very credible retired employees talking about it. I sure hope the issue is resolved! Most of my rifles are custom Rem 700's, some with custom triggers. It would be just horrible if they're covering up the trigger issue just to save a few dollars!!!!!!

    Don't be to worried. Go to the link for Remington and watch the videos on the right side of the page. Remington doesn't have a problem but CNBC has a big credibility problem.
