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.

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 went with the 501t since money was a object at the time and just do target shooting. I would like to try another brand but can't imagine something lighter than 4oz. I was also in favor of the flat bar since my target positions have them and all the adjustment range it has. Being able to move the trigger forward or back and side to side make a precision rig all the better.

I just had this gun passed down to me last night from my uncle. He told me that he would only pass it down to me if I get the trigger replaced. He said that he was just holding it one day and it went off.

Is replacing the trigger a pretty easy and simple process that I can do myself over sending it to a gunsmith?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You might want to look at the link below for some background on the trigger.


There are a lot of videos on trigger replacement on the 700. if I remember correctly Brownells had one that I used when replacing mine.
