A few years back, myself and two other hunters in our group used Rem 700's, all of which were purchased within a couple years of each other. Two in our group had slam fires. We contacted a two different gunsmith's and were to immediately bring them in. We did, all three of us had the triggers replaced and haven't had a problem since. If you are going to use your rifle, I certainly hope you hunting solo or shooting with no one else around.
