The Remington Model 700 and a dozen other Remington rifles can fire
– and maim and kill people –
when no one pulls the trigger.
- These rifles have killed or injured hundreds of people without any trigger pull.
- Remington knew its trigger was defective for decades, but kept the documents proving that sealed.
- Public Justice helped get the documents unsealed and is making them public here.
- In a national class action settlement, Remington has now agreed to replace the triggers for free in these rifles – Remington Model 700, Seven, Sportsman 78, 673, 710, 715, and 770 – for any gun owner who files a claim.
- All owners of these rifles should stop using them and file a claim to protect themselves, their family, friends and loved ones.
- All owners of three other Remington rifles with these triggers – Models 600, 660, and XP-100 – should stop using them, get them repaired for free through Remington’s 1979 recalls of Models 600 and 660 and Model XP-100 rifles, and consider filing a claim for the compensation the settlement provides.
All owners of three other Remington rifles with these triggers – Models 721, 722, and 725 – should stop using them, unless you get the defective trigger fixed, and consider filing a claim for the compensation the settlement provides.

NOTE: Public Justice created this web site to provide public access to the Remington trigger defect documents and prevent as many deaths and injuries from these rifles as possible. This web site does not provide legal advice or create an attorney-client relationship between anyone and Public Justice.
Public Justice was not involved in negotiating the settlement in Pollard v. Remington Arms. We believe strongly, however, that, to the extent that the settlement leads to the replacement of the defective triggers in these rifles – or even stops these rifles from being used – it will have performed an important public service.
