Have a chance at one but reading about some issues.  Blow back and it being a 700 I am of course concerned about their trigger does anybody have a history with these.  If so what was your experience ?

Get ahold of derfhunter over on MM if you get it and get his 209 conversion kit, no blowback and you can shoot BH209 if you wish. I believe the trigger problem was on a very limited number of guns not sure ,but I've owned 3 of them with zero issues.

I have an old Remington 700 with a replace Timney trigger (have a two stage trigger) which is nice whether you use that feature or not.  I never had a problem but changed for the two stage advantage.

Here's the link on Remington's recall.

the trigger has a history of numerous law suits, the gun is a good gun. just never ever point the muzzle at any one. has killed many a persons.

Seven deaths is not "many" per the official report, most deaths were found to be caused by careless handling.

I hear you, shit happens. That's why there are warnings. 

I see more damn fools at the range learning on the muzzles of firearms, it's a wonder there aren't more deaths.

i own numerous Remington model 700, 721 and 722 rifles with that trigger.  None have ever gone off unless the trigger is pulled.   The vast majority of Remington rifles that go bang do so because incompetents attempt to adjust the triggers.   If adjustment is accomplished correctly there is no problem.  

Yep, i spent a career in the US Army and worked for many years as a firing range advisor to other countries.   Military  folks  sometimes get eat up with the dumb ass too.
