Same here... I could not begin to count the # of 700's friends and I have had over the decades & have never had this problem. It is the first I ever heard of it. Not saying it didn't or does not happen, However?Also, if I remember right, the actions/firing pin etc would come from the factor with too much grease on them, and thus would not hit the primer hard enough in cold or freezing weather to set the round off. I have to wonder if that couldn't have been at least part of the problem? I occasionaly had some of my 700 actions cleaned by a gunsmith when I use to deer hunt in extreme cold weather, & why it makes me wonder about this?
Never had any issues my 700 ever. I love it and would gladly buy many many more. If I had the money.

As much as I love my Howa's the Remington 700 never had a miss firing problem. The owner of that gun F'ed with the trigger and wan't a qualified gunsmith. That gun was also rusted and not properly maintained. When the case went to court, no one could reproduce the problem either. I feel for the surviving family members but if you don't know what you are doing, DON'T F@#$ WITH THE BANG SWITCH. and for cry'n out loud, don't point the damn thing at anyone and these things won't happen no matter the condition of the rifle.
Did any of you see that documentary on the Rem 700 and its misfiring problem?

THANK YOU... And is the REAL reason for this horrific accident. I always love it when someone trys to BLAME something, anything other than their own negligence.
don't point the damn thing at anyone and these things won't happen no matter the condition of the rifle.
