I bought a Model 700 back in the early 70's and just a couple of years ago I gave it to my nephew (I've no children). Heard of trigger problems about 2 years ago and we did some research to make sure that rifle didn't have any issues. Thankfully, the one I bought was not one that had trigger issues. During the time I had it, it didn't have any issues. It was a fine .30-06 deer rifle.
Saw a piece just a few weeks ago on "60 Minutes" about Remington triggers. It has been known for a few years now. However, it is not something to be taken lightly. If you have a suspect rifle, get it corrected as soon as possible.
