This was a long time coming. The Remington model 700 accidental discharge problem has been widely known for years. There was even a TV expose on it -- see Remington Under Fire: A CNBC Investigation.
At long last Remington has admitted the problem is a specific trigger mechanism -- X-Mark Pro® (“XMP®”) triggers, manufactured from May 1, 2006 to April 9, 2014, and they've offered to fix it for free. The recall notice can be found here: Safety Warning And Recall Notice.
Better late than never.
