X-Mark Pro Recall

JUst saw this on Remingtons Facebook page, looks like they are recalling all the xmark pro triggers in the 700 and 7 rifles, due to the possibility of excess "bonding agent" that could cause an unintentional discharge.

Does anybody know where this "excess bonding agent" is supposed to be in the trigger?

Bonding agent in triggers is used to secure set-screws for the sear engagement, overtravel. The excess is probably interfering with reset or sear engagement.

Mine too, M1key. I'm thinking about just buying a Timney and not worrying with the hassle of sending it back. Especially since I have a modified bolt handle and different stock.

Then this will be easy to find and remedy I'm guessing.

Is the Ruger GSR considered an m77? If I remember correctly, they are very very similar. I'd rather be safe than sorry.

Your Ruger is a Ruger. It is Remington's being recalled. The Ruger trigger is polar opposite of a Remington trigger.

I just checked mine and it IS subject to recall. Remington sent me a confirmation email and will send me shipping instructions, box and I assume prepaid labels.

I've stickied this one for a while so hopefully more folks will see it, and edited the title for clarity. Here's the link directly to Remington: http://xmprecall.remington.com/

One of mine is and one isn't. The one that is had a Timney installed last year. The one that isn't soon will have anyway.

Well, I threw mine away 3 years ago. It was a crisp trigger but there was so much epoxy on it that I didn't think anything could be done with it. When I couldn't adjust it under 5 lb I replaced it with a Timney.

I was emailed a UPS shipping label and instructions today. Now, waiting on the box for shipping. They said, 2-3 week turn around.

Mine is subject to the recall as well. However, I have been contemplating an upgrade to a Timney, for a long long time. If you were in the same boat would you even bother with the recall and all that hassle or just expedite the upgrade? On the one hand I guess you'd be able to keep the factory trigger rather than toss it as potentially dangerous. I wish I could just send in the trigger and not the whole rifle.

Not all are being recalled. They have a seaech feature set up to identify the ones they want to work on. I checked two of the four I bought during that time. One was GTG and the other was a recall. I will probably put a few of the old style triggers on them and call it good.

There is a Remington service center about an hour from where I live. Since I know they do Remington warranty work, I gave them a call this morning to ask if they could perform this recall work and they said yes. So, later in the day I drove over there and was then informed that no, they couldn't do the work. All guns have to be shipped back to Remington. They weren't real happy about that themselves as they had about 40 rifles that they were removing from the racks to send back.

But the drive wasn't a total waste as I scored some powder and ran into a couple of old friends and shot the breeze with them for a while.

But, I doubt I'm going to send anything back to Remington for repair at this point. I had one XMP trigger fail in the past out of warranty and I replaced that with a Timney, so I'll do that on the other and be done with it.

Glad I installed a Timney in my 700 SPS Varmint a few years back. I tried to have a gunsmith tune up the X-Mark, and he said it was the worst trigger he had ever tried to tune. Said the only way to a decent pull out of it was to replace it. Never regretted it.

I don't think the gravity of the situation has sat in quite yet for everyone...those dates they list span 8 years it's a chit-storm of epic proportions - I just checked my serials, and I have 3 rifles affected out of the 4 I own. Ohhhh, to be Timney right now...

Well my 700 lv sf is on the recall list I may wait awhile before I send it in. It rarely gets shot and its more of a paper puncher anyways. Not like it gets carried in the field. Figure if I wait to send it in, say six to nine months, hopefully it won't be a long wait to get it back.
