I remember the recall on Remington 700s

a while back because of defective triggers. They were referred to but the media as being ‘dangerous triggers’ because if the rifle was bumped it could go off.

The way I look at it, the triggers were defective. They were not by and in themselves dangerous because a rifleman knows enough to keep the muzzle of a rifle pointed in a safe direction at all times.

That being said, in the hands of untrained people even the best rifle isn’t safe. In the hands of a careless idiot any rifle is just an accident looking for a place to happen.

Incidentally I built a Model 700 a while back and the first thing to go was the trigger. I replaced it with a Timney.
