On April 11, 2014, Remington Arms Company announced a voluntary recall of Model 700 and Model Seven rifles with X-Mark Pro (XMP) triggers, manufactured from May 1, 2006, to April 9, 2014.

Engineers with Remington determined that some of these rifles, with the XMP triggers, could unintentionally discharge. Remington’s investigation determined that some XMP triggers might have excess bonding agent used in the assembly process, which could cause this unintentional discharge. Therefore, the company is recalling all affected products to fully inspect and clean the XMP triggers with a specialized process.

Remington has advised all customers to immediately cease use of the recalled firearms and return them to Remington free of charge. The rifles will be inspected, cleaned, tested and returned as soon as possible.

*****

Thompson/Center Arms is recalling all Icon, Venture and Dimension rifles manufactured before June 13, 2013.

Thompson/Center Arms has identified a condition where the safety lever in certain rifles may bind, preventing the safety from being fully engaged. In this situation, closing the bolt may move the safety into the fire position. The rifle will not fire unless the trigger is pulled. However, Thompson/Center Arms is recalling all affected rifles for inspection and, if necessary, repair. All shipping and repair costs will be covered by the company.

If you have any questions, call 1-877-318-0644 and visit the Thompson/Center Arms website for more information.
