Remington has announced a voluntary safety recall of Model 700 and Model Seven rifles with X-Mark Pro, or XMP triggers manufactured between May 1, 2006 and April 9, 2014.

Any rifles made after April 9, 2014 are not subject to recall.

Remington discovered that rifles equipped with the XMP trigger can fire unintentionally. This is very dangerous and potentially fatal if not addressed. This problem is specific to the XMP trigger only. All other Model 700 and Model Seven rifles are unaffected by this recall.

The cause of the problem is “excess bonding agent being applied in the assembly process,” not the trigger itself.

“While Remington has the utmost confidence in the design of the XMP trigger, it is undertaking this recall in the interest of consumer safety to remove any potential excess bonding agent applied in the assembly process,” states the recall notice.

The XMP triggers can be identified by their smooth faces. Rifles with serrated trigger faces are not affected.


For a right-handed rifle, the serial number is located on a user’s left. For a left-handed rifle, the serial number is located on a user’s right.

If you think your rifle may be affected by this recall, call Remington at 1 (800) 243-9700 with your gun’s serial number. The serial number is marked on the barrel at the receiver.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

Thanks for the info. I won't send them my rifle back. I would hate for the UPS guy to bring firearms into NY. I'll just drop in a Timney

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

Yup mine had a Timney in it less than 24 hours after it came home. If you haven't already made your purchase, consider one of the new Timney Calvin Elite triggers. I replaced my 512 with one last month and it is amazing.
The law? The law is a human institution...
