Hey all--my friend and I both purchased Remington 700 SPS rifles in the last week, mine in .308. his in .223. I guess the SPS is their tactical whizbang version of the regular 700, so we jumped on the price, which was a good deal all around. To get to the point, I received my .308 and didnt notice any problems, but my friends .223 arrived and after about 15 minutes of inspection and trying to run some dummy rounds through the mag, the mag spring BROKE. It broke right at the base where it attaches to the floorplate. My question is will Remington replace this? Im hoping their warrantee for the rifle holds true. Has anyone else had any problems regarding the mag springs in the new SPS rifles?

Remington should replace the spring without too much trouble, but you may have to ship it to them, making it not worthwhile. I would give them a call and see if they will ship you the part as installation is simple if you have basic hand tools and are half-way handy. Forgot...welcome to THR! :)
