    I chose to replace mine. The old ones are sitting in a drawer in a workbench.

    I have heard nightmare stores about sending your rifle in and waiting months to get it back and then it still have a Remington Trigger. None of my Remingtons have a Remington Trigger in them. If you want a Non-Recall, new Remington Trigger, I can send you one for $25.00 but I would highly recommend that you just put a good trigger in the rifle. My preference in order of cost is:
    Timney Regular 510 - Great for hunting and general purpose
    Timney - Calvin Elite 520CE - Perfect for Tactical and General Targer
    Jewel - Great for Bench Rest, but keep it clean.
    Big-N-Andy if money is no object.

    If your budget allows it, get the Timney CE (Calvin Elite) and you will not be sorry and you will have a wider range of adjustment.

    My original trigger broke where the allen screw goes through the shoe. Called Rem, told them it broke, they wanted me to send the rifle in to get a new trigger, told them no way. They ended up sending my the trigger, never installed it, installing a Timney, which was then replaced with a Huber.

    Hi. My 700 was not subject to the recall but the newer Remington triggers appear to be designed by lawyers. It was adjustable only if you removed goo and of course that would absolve Remington of liability. I took it out and put in a Jewell BR Trigger. I looked at Timney and some others and chose the Jewell. It was easy to install and I'm quite happy with it.

    I like Jewel triggers and have a number of them in my Bench Rest Rifles. Capable of 1.5 ounce trigger weight. Just keep them clean.
