Dear DU supporter:
Remington Arms Company, LLC ("Remington") today announced a voluntary recall of Model 700™ and Model Seven™ rifles with X-Mark Pro® ("XMP®") triggers, manufactured from May 1, 2006 to April 9, 2014. Some of these rifles may have been acquired by DU members during the past several years, and we are informing you of this Remington recall notice in the interest of public safety.
Remington has determined that some Model 700 and Model Seven rifles with XMP triggers could, under certain circumstances, unintentionally discharge. IN THE INTEREST OF SAFETY, THESE PRODUCTS ARE BEING RECALLED BY REMINGTON (THE MANUFACTURER).
Some XMP triggers might have excess bonding agent used in the assembly process, which could cause an unintentional discharge. Therefore, Remington is recalling ALL affected products to fully inspect and clean the XMP triggers with a specialized process. Remington has advised customers to immediately cease use of recalled rifles and return them to Remington, free of charge. The rifles will be inspected, cleaned, tested, and returned as soon as possible.
Do not attempt to diagnose or repair recalled rifles. Remington has established a dedicated website and toll-free hotline to help consumers determine whether their Model 700 or Model Seven rifle(s) are subject to recall:
• Website: http://xmprecall.remington.com
• Toll-Free Hotline: 1-800-243-9700 (Prompt #3 then Prompt #1) Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT.
As always, we value your support of Ducks Unlimited, as well as your safety. Thank you for your attention to this Remington Arms Company, LLC recall notification.
