The settlement involves a class action suit brought in 2013 by Ian Pollard of Concordia, Missouri, who claimed his Remington 700 rifle fired on multiple occasions without the trigger being pulled.

Multiple times? I don't think Ian has a whole lot going on between the ears.

I have one Rem 700 action and bolt, wearing a Timney.

Don't think I qualify.

Down to 2 Remmy 700s, probably soon be down to 1 and it ain't going anywhere anytime soon. But will say my favorite Remmy Bolt action rifles are 788s.

I have a 700 CDL and it is the best rifle I have ever had.

I've got 3 700's all with their original triggers. I've never had a problem with one but I've been wanting to change them over to timneys anyways. I'll just tell the chief financial officer it makes them safer for the grandsons.

I've got a feeling that I'd better get them ordered because Timney is gonna get busy!

Not a rifle. I have my great grandfather's model 11 shotgun I hunted with as a teenager until it would go full auto. Later I took it to a gunsmith and had him fix the auto problem, blue and put a new butt stock on. He said at some point the sear lever broke and it was replaced with about a sixteen penny nail which finally gave out. I will not blame Remington for that.

I have a old model 66 which has never given me a problem.

An old Remington 552 Speedmaster. I bought a 597 when they first came out, and it was a jamomatic. Sold it at a yardsale. Bought my dad a 700, and the bolt knob broke off. Will never buy another Remington rifle. I have two Remington Shotguns, a mid 90s 870 Express and a 2002 11/87 Premier light contour. They are both outstanding firearms.

5R .308 with a jewell. Extremely accurate and no problems.

Decent guns with great aftermarket support, but I'm not a fan of the cast bolt handles. I do a lot of tactical bolt knobs on 700's and in about 80% of them, turning the bolt knob down will result in hitting a void in the casting. In most cases it will never cause a problem, but I'd hate to think of really needing a quick followup shot and having my bolt knob break off in my hand.
Also, and this was a looong time ago (1975'ish), I was a wide-eyed 10 year-old going on a hunt put on by a group of guys that took kids hunting for the first time. Any kid that didn't have a hunting rifle could pick one out of the ones available from the sponsors. I picked out a nice Remington 700 in .243 because it was gorgeous and it made me feel like a big game hunting fool. We all had to sight in our guns and after I fired one round on the range, the bolt handle broke loose from the body, so I couldn't eject the fired case. There was already more kids than there was guns. so I ended up missing my first deer hunt due to a POS Remington. I know it was a fluke, and I've worked on and shot hundreds of Remingtons since then, but it left a bad taste in my mouth for years and years. I still don't own one and never have.

Nope. I'm a savage guy. Always have been. Got a 99 that in 60+ years has never let me, my dad, or my great grandfather down. And I've got a 111 that I expect to do the same.

OwnED several. Some shot sweet and some not so much. Never was a fan if any of their triggers. Only bolt action center fire rifles I own now are Tikkas.

I've owned a lot of 700s and have only had a single malfunction. It was on a predator hunt and the rifle discharged when I pushed the safety forward. was a trigger that I had paid a gunsmith to "rework" so I can't blame Remington for the missed song dog.
