Remington Firearms announced on their website that certain firearms are being voluntarily recalled. According to the website Remington engineers determined that some Model 700 and Model Seven rifles with XMP triggers could, under certain circumstances, unintentionally discharge.

Rifles being recalled were produced between May 1, 2006 through April 9, 2014 and have an X-Mark Pro® (“XMP®”) trigger. Rifles manufactured after April 9, 2014 are not subject to recall.
The XMP triggers in the Remington Model Seven might have excess bonding agents used in the assembly process which can cause the weapon to suddenly discharge.

Remington encourages consumers not to diagnose or repair the rifles. If you own a recalled Remington Model Seven you are encouraged to call Remington’s recall hotline at 1-800-243-9700 or visit their recall website.

This morning Teresa Tverdy, Twin Falls 4-H Program Specialist at the University of Idaho Extension Office, informed Magic Valley 4-H families about the recall. Tverdy also encouraged families to share the recall information with community members.
