Remington has agreed to fix or replace the trigger in almost all of their bolt action rifles.
(I like my 700, 7, and XP-100 triggers just fine the way they are.)  Shooter

I always was told it was due to folks adjusting their triggers way to much?

I've only owned one Rem 700, and when I first got it I gave it to my gunsmith to go through the trigger. He specialized in Rem 700's, and knew them well. I asked him to set the trigger at 2lbs, and he wouldn't do it. He told me he never sets the triggers lighter than 3lbs, and anything lighter wasn't safe. I shot the gun a lot, and hunted it a few times. It always worked perfect.

It's easy to adjust the poundage on a 700's trigger if you know what you're doing. I don't.

My gunsmith (now dead) would set mine at a shade over 2 lbs. but most commercial guys won't, due to the possibility of a lawsuit.

Their sniper rifles could be ordered with a 2 ounce trigger. I don't know if that's still possible.

I purchased a new 700/7MM with the X-Mark Pro trigger. I also bought the 700 in the 30-06 cal. I received the recall  a week after I bought them. I sent them to Remington and waited 5 weeks. I called them and they said they had 7 million rifles to work on. They told me they were going to remove the additive then they said it was more cost effective to just replace the trigger with a new one. When I got my guns back I replaced them with the TIMNEY trigger, just to be safe. I still have confidence in the rifle.
