I see no logic in this. Hide a known problem from the public just to keep them from going belly-up? Most folks that have 700's, that have been "tricked" into firing, had no knowledge of any of the allegations against Remington until after they had it happen to them. As gun buyers, we aren't machinists nor are most experts on gun maintenance and repair. We expect to buy a reasonably safe product for use and expect that the manufacturer has our safety as it's #1 concern. We also expect the product instructions to be accurate. It seems all Remington needed to do was include a warning that the gun may be "tricked" into firing when disengaging the safety to open the bolt. I'm no fan on MSNBC or the anti-gun folks but they didn't have to do a whole lot of leg work to get ratings. Remington has been a sitting duck over this trigger assembly issue since they introduced this model. I'll also say that the unfortunate incident that was in their special was in-part, operator error. She stated that she did not point the gun anywhere but the ground when she went to disengage the safety. Then she stated it fired on it's own and struck her child. Somewhere in between being pointed at the ground and disengaging the safety, the barrel had a bead on her son. That flew right past watchers of the show. A trick of hand by MSNBC. Remington determined only 1% of the 2 million sold had issues so no recall was made, instead a firearm safety campaign. That left about 20,000 (1%) defective rifles in the publics hands. 20,000! Remington should have stepped up long ago to protect it's customers.
