I love the looks of those fancy wood stocks and shiny deep blue jobs but stainless and synthetic makes a lot more sense in the real world.

Oh. Sorry. Embarassed

I've been a little touchy lately. Please forgive.

Then bring out your own thread . somewhere else instead of the same BS as on the other Gun Forums .
You seem to be just stuck on your own agenda .
Try reading the last few comments on this thread .

I have had so much Missouri gumbo on my pretty little Browning Citori during spring snow goose hunts that it was hardly recognizable. Same for my dad's old Browning Sweet Sixteen during turkey season. HOWEVER, I take REALLY good care of them at the end of the day. Very Happy

Bought another 700 just the other day. It has a very light trigger but functions perfectly. I love them.

I modified my 1997 Remington 700 bolt to accept the older bolt locking safety with a Dremel tool and a cut-off wheel. It turned out great, tried to post a picture here but could not. Here is a link to a thread with a picture:

Well those of you sitting in your chair and saying there is not a problem with any of the rifles have their heads in the sand . It's called denial !! Mad
You just follow the safe rules of any gun , but take it from some one who had an unaltered cleaned regularly Reminton rifle,while loading a bind Mag with bullets .( No drop out Mag)
I closed the bolt and the gun went off . Well I thought it might have been the gloves I wore ( Hitting the trigger ) , but when this happened another year , and knew it was a bit more to this than "Human Error" It was sent to Remington , who repaired it with out a word, and to no expense to me .
Well I always practice safe muzzle control , but things do happen , and you can never call back a bullet as it is leaving the barrel .
And you know something , I used this gun at the range too firing maybe 200 rounds during the off season between the hunts . And never was there any issues with the rifle . So it was just going to happen when it finally did .
Yes Remington knew about the issue and never questioned a rifle brought in to them for repair , so there is probably yet a few model 700 as well as 600 and 660 rifles out there that could discharge .
All I ask anyone is have that remington checked out by a good smith or change it out for one of the newer units and just be done with it .
For those who insist there rifles never had a problem , well maybe they were corrected , but suppose maybe some day some one in your family takes a hit . then will you do something about your older Remington ??



Sad to say even though I am a proud owner of 4 Remingtons, I have had the same problem with my rifle accidently discharging. One of Remington's technicians who is also a peace officer did the repair on my malfunctioning 700 at no charge. As much as I'd love to say that this model is without flaw ...they are.

SLIM....GELAN...Maqwa needs a hand. I'll grab some "medicinal" beers if you guys can help him back up onto his stump.

You will find threads like this have a tendency to resurface every now and again mate...nothing wrong with that...its how info and knowledge gets circulated.

Cheers, Vince
