Reminder to Remington rifle owners of class action suit

By court order, Remington Arms issued a reminder this week to owners of certain types of Remington rifles of the benefits they can receive as a result of a settlement agreement.

According to the announcement, the settlement allows owners of Remington models 700, Seven, and related models to have their trigger replaced free of charge, among other benefits.

The agreement covers two classes: owners of rifles that use a trigger connector, and owners of firearms that use the X-Mark Pro trigger mechanism.

The subject of the case was a defect in the trigger designs that allowed the firearm to discharge a round without the pull of a trigger. Although Remington is adhering to the court orders by recalling the products, the company continues to deny the allegation.

According to the settlement website, if owners do nothing they will be bound by the Court’s decisions. The deadline to object to the settlement or opt out and reserve the right to sue the gun maker was Nov. 18, 2016.
