Yes Squire Doctor,
Right you are. The 600 & 660 along with the Mohawk 600 after a certain year were called back by remington to remove the bolt lock that lock the bolt when the safety was on.
Amen!Many have went off without having the trigger pulled, but only after some nitwit with a bent screwdriver and a broken claw hammer adjusted screws he should have never touched.
... How ever , there were AT THE VERY LEAST a few cases ...
Speaking of trigger failures, I once had the secondary sear on a Ruger Mini-14 fail, converting the rifle to full auto. I had a fair bit of fun with it, but finally got it repaired when I realized that the Mounties would not be amused if they caught me blazing away with it.
Just a heads up, Timney no longer makes the Calvin Elite hunting trigger, only the target version with adjustable shoe. The replacement is the Elite Hunter Remington 700.
ChrisI recall a recall in Australia maybe 2010 onwards, I don’t know the detail except I believe it was triggers. That could end badly if they were discharging by themselves.
Hogpatrol7.5 million 700 rifles, there's bound to be a few dogs. Unfortunately for Remington, you only read about those. This thread could morph in to autos, trucks and motorcycles and follow the same path. IMHO, if one wants perfection, a factory built rifle isn't going to fill the bill.
When are you going to convert it to 35 Whelen.
SkinnersbladeTo be honest I dont see the need after buying my .375h&h I just plan to load that up or down for whatever the job calls for. I'm currently working on a deer load with the Barnes original flat nose 255 grain and 50.5 grains of h4895 giving in the neighbourhood or 2150fps.
