Remington 700: The Defect
The Remington Model 700 bolt-action rifle has a defective trigger that can cause the gun to fire without the trigger being pulled. This defect is shared by related firearms, including the Model 770, Model 710, Model 600, Model 660, Model 721 and Model 722.
Due to the trigger defect, the Remington 700 is among the most dangerous guns in use today. Learn more about the Remington 700 trigger defect.
Class Actions And Individual Lawsuits
A number of class-action lawsuits have been filed in various states against Remington. Monsees & Mayer is among several national law firms who have participated in these efforts. Typically, these class actions involve a retrofit to fix the defective trigger connector. However, if you have been injured or a family member has died because of a defective trigger connector in a Remington bolt-action rifle, you have the right to file an individual lawsuit against the manufacturer.
Our lawyers represent injured hunters and their family members throughout the United States in personal injury and wrongful death claims against the manufacturer.
