There are currently 3 class action suits against Remington for this issue and this one has been settled now but the details have not been released.
It seems at the very least there will be a recall.
I bet the dinks at GM hope the news cycle picks this up and runs with it for a while.
The Remington Arms Co. has reached a nationwide settlement of claims that most of its Model 700 bolt-action hunting rifles have a defective trigger mechanism — a settlement likely to include the recall of millions of the popular firearm.
Attorneys for Remington and the plaintiffs in the class-action lawsuit against the company did not respond Monday to requests for comment on a “notice of settlement” filed last week in federal court in Missouri.
Yet Richard Barber, a Montana man who’s been saying for a dozen years that many of the Model 700 are defective and should be recalled, indicated Monday that a recall is part of the settlement.
“It does accomplish what I want to accomplish,” he told the Lee Newspapers State Bureau. “I guess it’s safe to say, it’s better late than never. …
“As a whole, (the settlement) represents the best interests of the public. It will save lives, it will save limbs.”
The lawsuit says more than 5 million Model 700 bolt-action rifles have been sold since 1962.
