DESCRIPTION OF THE HAZARD: Remington has determined that some Model 700 and Model Seven rifles with XMP triggers could, under certain circumstances, unintentionally discharge.
A Remington investigation has determined that some XMP triggers might have excess bonding agent used in the assembly process.
