I remember the first time I shot it like it was yesterday.At the time, the stamped metal folding stocking without a recoil pad and long length of pull seemed cool.My buddy and I enjoyed bruised shoulders and cheeks.We looked forward to saving up enough money to buy a case of cheap bird shot and heading out to the sand pit to shoot 250-rounds at a time.The XMP triggers can be identified by their smooth faces.Rifles with serrated trigger faces are not affected.
Any rifles made after April 9, 2014 are not subject to recall.
The cause of the problem is “excess bonding agent being applied in the assembly process,” not the trigger itself.
“While Remington has the utmost confidence in the design of the XMP trigger, it is undertaking this recall in the interest of consumer safety to remove any potential excess bonding agent applied in the assembly process,” states the recall notice.
If you think your rifle may be affected by this recall, call Remington at 1 (800) 243-9700 with your gun’s serial number.
The serial number is marked on the barrel at the receiver.
