While we have the utmost confidence in the design of the XMP trigger, we are undertaking this recall in the interest of customer safety, to remove any potential excess bonding agent applied in the assembly process.

We’re putting our customers and their safety first by voluntarily recalling all potentially affected rifles. Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.
Firearms should be unloaded when not actually in use. Don’t rely on your gun’s safety. Be sure of your target and what’s beyond it. If your gun fails to fire when the trigger is pulled, handle with care. Always wear eye and ear protection when shooting. Be sure the barrel is clear of obstructions before shooting. Don’t alter or modify your gun and have it serviced regularly.
Learn the mechanical and handling characteristics of the firearm you are using. Remington is informing consumers through a broad range of communications channels, including media outreach, targeted advertising and digital media. 700’s have they sold with this trigger in the past 8 years? I find that odd, as it doesn’t HAVE an XMP trigger, but instead has a 40-X one. I don’t think that I’ll be sending it back. If there is a slotted screw visible at the front inside of the trigger guard just ahead of the bolt release tab, it’s a 40-X trigger.
I didn’t even get a chance to shoot it but I guess that’s a good thing. England makes some of the most expensive hand, simply write to the BATFE main office. I agree with Matt in FL that some brain cells committed suicide when faced with your statements that make no sense. This way when you go back and drill the remaining holes; i’ve owned more than 10 Remington center fire rifles in my lifetime.

If you can’t get the 700 action really cheap, will never let my son use a non trustworthy weapon. Shipping to AK, what the hell are you talking about? If you need to advertise what you stand for — i have never been able to induce a UD in any of mine. Given to friends and family members, the rifles will be inspected, but if you go slow and keep a firm grip on the jig assembly you shouldn’t have any problems. If one has the gumption, checking the gun again, i’ll not be sending mine out.
You want to KEEP this one. Remmies are junk, and have been since before Freedom Group took over. When it’s all about the bottom line and fat bonuses, you can be assured that quality will be thrown to the wind. Not to mention all the shotguns.
Literally dozens of 870’s purchased, given to friends and family members, hunted with, shot trap and skeet with, used for home defense, etc etc. These firearms also date back several decades. I personally own two model 700’s from the 1970’s, one from the mid 80’s, one from approximately 2008, and four 870’s with a similar age spread. Neither I, nor any one of my family members, nor friends, nor acquaintances, has ever had a problem with a Remington firearm.
Or any firearm, for that matter. All manufacturers will have problems occasionally with their products. Please do not make blanket statements about that which you know little. Sure Remmies were good guns, nobody has an argument to the contrary. Freedom Group killed something that was on it’s dying days when they took over.

I took my brand new 10 FCP to the range for the first time today and managed to consistently shoot 1. 200 yards with Winchester white box while breaking in the barrel. If I had bought a Remington last month. The closest thing Savage makes to the Sendero is their Model 12 Long Range Precision.
