Is the Rem 700 really safe?

Postby chief joe » Thu Oct 21, 2010 1:19 am

[size=150][color=darkred]The manufacturer of the world's most popular hunting rifle has been wrestling for decades with a critical safety issue, and at least twice considered a nationwide recall of the gun, according to corporate insiders and internal documents revealed in a ten-month CNBC investigation.
But the Remington Arms Company has never alerted the public to the internal concerns, and insists the gun is free of defects, despite thousands of customer complaints.

The controversy over the 700 is explored in a CNBC Original documentary, "Remington Under Fire: A CNBC Investigation," premiering Wednesday, Oct. 20 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Nothing wrong with the rem 700.. The problem is people mess with the triggers and that is what causes the problems.. They try and set them too light..
