We’ve reported in the past on the claims made by various parties that Remington 700 rifles that use the Walker fire control system have been known to fire without so much as a finger on the trigger. Well, one of the allegedly injured parties, Joel Lovell, hired the Houston class action factory otherwise known as the Lanier Law Firm. And the distinguished barristers issued a press release via PR Newswire and marketwatch.com peacocking the fact that they’ve managed to extract an undisclosed financial settlement from the Freedom Group company. The question is, will this be an isolated drip or the beginning of a deluge. Press release after the jump . . .

HOUSTON, June 14, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — A Texas man who suffered significant injuries in 2009 after being shot in the foot when his rifle unexpectedly fired has reached a financial settlement with Madison, N.C.-based gun manufacturer Remington Arms Company LLC.

Erath County resident Joel Lovell was represented by noted Houston attorneys Mark Lanier and Patrick O’Hara from The Lanier Law Firm in his claims that his Remington Model 700 rifle fired without the trigger being pulled. The lawsuit, Joel Lovell v. Remington Arms Company LLC et al., was filed late last year in Madison County district court.

The lawsuit asserted that Remington Model 700 rifles include a dangerous and defective Walker Fire Control System that can cause the weapons to fire without a trigger pull. According to the claims, the Model 700 can fire upon release of the safety, when the main bolt is moved, or when the gun is jarred or bumped.

In the legal filing, Mr. Lovell noted that although Remington Arms uses a safer alternate trigger mechanism in some of its rifles, the company continues to include the Walker Fire Control design in many of its products.

It is estimated that more than 5 million U.S. residents own Remington Model 700 rifles with the defective Walker Fire Control System. Multiple deaths and hundreds of serious injuries have been linked to the dangerous weapons.

“This company apparently has decided to play Russian roulette with its customers by doing nothing and hoping that more misfires won’t happen,” says Mr. Lanier. “Despite thousands of consumer complaints, numerous lawsuits, and national media attention on the defective design, Remington refuses to replace the defective system in many of its guns.”

With offices in Houston, Los Angeles, New York, and Palo Alto, The Lanier Law Firm is committed to addressing client concerns with effective and innovative solutions in courtrooms across the country. The firm is composed of outstanding trial attorneys with decades of experience handling cases involving pharmaceutical liability, asbestos exposure, intellectual property, business litigation, product liability, maritime law, bad faith insurance claims, and sports and entertainment law.

  1. The stupid thing is, Remington could have given the guy cab fare, and the statement would not be factually untrue.

  2. This isn’t the first suit Remmy has settled, and it won’t be the last. Remmy also got clocked for $10 million in a case it couldn’t settle.

    The fire control system at issue is also used in the 870. Remmy has changed the fire control system and offered owners the opportunity to have their lockbolt mechanisms fixed — and get a check from Remington for $20 just for getting the gun fixed.

    Reminton considered recalling all rifles and shotguns with the Walker system as early as the 1970s, but decided against it. There’s a mountain of evidence out there that the fire control system is, in fact, defective. Of course, not every 870 or 700 is going to discharge accidentally, but some of them will, and there are enough wounded and dead people out there to give Remmy a headache for many years to come.

  3. I keep my 700 in good repair and inspect the mechanism once a year. I don’t see a problem with the action or it’s design. I’m either lucky or responsible, take your pick.

    The injured and dead would be just fine today if the 4 rules were followed, and in each case a round was left in the chamber, the barrel was pointed in an unsafe direction, and someone handled the gun.

    • Yup. I’m with you on that.

      My 700 has never had a problem and it’s the right manufacture to be one of those “magic” weapons that fires itself.

      It’s amazing how safe on can be with just the safety between your can ears work, even if mechanical safeties fail or the weapon in question has none.

      • I never, ever, even use safeties… the mere presence and name of, “safety” implies that the device does the job for you…

        But, as an engineer who can’t get some of my friends to wear their seatbelts… some logic simply defies data.

    • The Rem700 trigger (aka “Walker Fire Control Group”) has had known problems at light (< 3 lbs) weights for years.

      If someone wants to run a light trigger weight in a Rem700 or similar rifle, they're best served by getting a trigger designed for the light weights, not backing out the trigger weight screw on a Rem700 trigger group to the point where the connector can float off the trigger.

  4. I don’t believe the 870 and the 700 share the same trigger group!!!
    The 700 Trigger is user adjustable and that is where the problem lies. People tinker with them and then loan sale or trade the gun to an unsuspecting sole and then that person has a mishap and blames it on the gun. Stupid is as Stupid does.
    I can take every 700 made and make it fire when you flip the safety and it would take a little more work but, I can say the same about the 870 also.
    Please give me a break !!!! Some people don’t even need a cap Pistol !!!!!

    • Remmy has paid out at least $20 million in injury and death claims because of the Walker system. That’s not chump change or nuisance settlements. They have a problem with the guns and they’ve known it for over thirty years.

    • @Hog The adjustable one Remmy supplies now is the X-Mark Pro trigger, designed as a safer, user-adjustable alternative to the Walker trigger

    • I believe Ralph meant the 770 (old 710) which still uses this trigger.
      He also stated that you can have the older model fixed by remington and they will send you a $20 check. It’s the other way around, you have to send them a $20 check.

      • I am ex-military, and have seen the problem first hand. I find what Rem. is doing very disturbing. When the story first broke I email them, and there talking head email me back with there position, which I found to be dishonest. I emailed them again and politely told them they were scum, and that would not be using any of there products to include ammo. I got another email back from them which surprised me, it was apologetic, but once I make up my mine about someones integrity I am done. NO GUNS, NO AMMO REMMY

    • I have never modified, changed, or “tinkered” with anything on my 700 series and was a victim of the defective mechanism. I was lucky I had the gun pointed in a safe direction as I always do, but nonetheless…a gun firing 6 inches from your face when nothing touches the trigger is a pretty traumatic experience.

  5. “Multiple deaths and hundreds of serious injuries have been linked to the dangerous weapons.” Now THAT is a true statement. Just ask any number of jihadists or hijackers.

  6. From what I understand the problem happens when a non-qualified person attempts to alter the trigger system.

    • Wrong..happened to me and nobody..qualified or unqualified has modified anything on my firearm. Very disturbing to know Remington’s position on the issue. I will be contacting attorneys and will be taking legal action..More lives will be lost because Remington will not be accountable and responsible. Recall these damn things before more blood is shed.

  7. I own a 1970’s model 700 30-06, This gun requires me to take safety off in order to release bolt to empty the gun. Two years ago I took gun off safe to shoot at a deer and the gun went bang when I released safety with no finger near trigger. I took my gun to gander mountain as they are an authorized Remington gun smith. They told me they put in a new assembly and I would not have this issue again. Tonight I was hunting with my 16 year old nephew and he was going to unload the gun. I reminded him to keep gun pointed in a safe direction. He took off safety in order to get last shell out of gun and once again gun went bang. I have been a remington owner for 25 years with numerous shotguns and Rifles. Remington was my favorite gun maker. keyword WAS. I am one very ticked off long time remington loyalist.

  8. The best way to solve the Remy 700 trigger problem is to buy a Savage. 🙂

    But seriously, unload the damn guns after use and don’t point at things you don’t intend to destroy!!! Don’t leave a round in the chamber and then pack the rifle up, pointing it at your damn kid! Family Range day isn’t child’s play and must be treated that way. In all honesty, Remington shouldn’t be blamed, dumb people who handle guns should!

  9. A gun shouldnt fire unless the trigger is pulled. Yes people should keep in pointed in a safe direction but that does not relieve Remington of this problem of theirs, which is not limited to those who modded their triggers. People on this forum are basically making the same argument that the ground beef industry made when it was learned that their product had toxic strains of e-coli. They said that it is ok to eat poop as long as you cook it well enough to kill the e-coli. Obviously there still should be rule about food safety just because high temps kill pathogens just like guns should not go bang unless you pull the trigger even though nobody gets hurt if it is pointed at the ground. You defenders of the 700 are about as dumb as a bag of dicks. just because your rifle is ok doesnt mean the company clearly put profits over the safety of its customers.

You defenders of the 700 are about as dumb as a box of rocks. Just because your rifle is ok doesnt mean the company did not put profits over the safety of its customers.

    • So, this dumb box of rocks engineer would like to remind you that the Remington 700 series rifle is the single-most utilized plaftorm for building up precision match, target, and sniper rifles. Even the custom manufactured actions, bolts and triggers are predominately improved, more precise/expensive/lightened/aesthetic copies of the originals.

      The US military has used this design since the Viet Nam war as their precision platform… and, therefore must have sufficient experience and faith in the platform to believe that when the outcome of a battle may depend on the surgical excisement of high-value targets, the rifle will work as expected. Snipers spend many hours on shooting ranges sharpening their skills as they work their way through thousands of rounds of ammunition using rifles that are as old as their operators.

      The Remington 700, in most versions, either has a magazine dump door on the bottom, or a removable magazine. The most popular version which does not, is the ADL. The action is quiet enough that one or two rounds can be loaded into the magazine, and the bolt actuated to put one into battery in most hunting scenarios.

      The accidental discharge of a firearm into an unintended target is just the inexcuseable action of a careless and unredeemable idiot. And your defense of unredeemable idiots is a reflection more on you, than of the boxes of rocks…

      • I don’t think you understand the flaw. Some models you cannot operate the bolt unless the saftey is off. So you load the gun, cycle the bolt, ready to fire, put the saftey on. Now you hunt for 4 hours and are done with the day, or you line up on a deer. You get ready, to either unload to put away, or unload on the deer. Finger not on the trigger, move the saftey (which is require as you can’t move the bolt if you wanted to with the saftey on) and BOOM! Gun goes off. How is this anything but a design flaw on a completely factory, cared for gun? I figured it might just be operator error as well but today I handled a Remington I could get to fire in that scenario 1 out of 5 times. The safety at some point ends up holding the hammer back, not the trigger, the saftey becomes the trigger, it’s a flaw.

  11. I have had a Remington 700 for several years and loved it. Last week I went to the range and it went off two times without pulling the trigger. After testing it at home I found it would go off when the safety was off ever time I closed the bolt. It will also go off if the bolt is closed and you move safety to fire position. And before any one ask, no I have not fooled with the trigger.

      • I just bought a 770 30-06. First shot was fine. Next shot wouldnt fire started moving wiggling safety and gun went off. Dont likd this at all. Someone said switch bullets from remington to hornady dont think that would help at all. So is there a different safety system put in

        • If it’s a brand new gun, I’d take it back. If it was a private sale, I’d take it to a gunsmith.

  12. I wonder if the problem is across the board with both steel and stainless models.
    I guess it should be as the bolt and trigger are the same. I have a 700 stainless and have had no issues with it. Bought it in 1986.
    No where on the Remington website is there any mention of a rework or recall or serial number range.
    After reading all the threads on forums and other sites so many people cant be doing it wrong.

  13. I own two Remington model 700 rifles. A1983 700BDL/.270 Winchester cal. blue steel and a 2006 700LSS .270WSM cal. I have killed several deer with each using Remington , Winchester , Hornady, Federal ammunition . I only clean my rifle after checking the scopes before deer season and then after deer season. Kill no more than 3 to 6 deer per season. I have never had a problem with either rifle . The BDL has to be off safe to bolt. The LSS will bolt on safe. Several of my club members also own 700’s. No issues what so ever. I do not doubt anyone has had problems with uncontrolled firings. Anything man made and mechanical can and will malfunction. The “new” Remington trigger is being recalled by the way.

  14. I have always been a Remington fan. Love the 700 action. I own several. But I have seen a misfire happen TWICE in my life time. Both times (thankfully) the gun was pointing in a safe direction. Once when the bolt was being closed chambering the first round, and once when the safety was being engaged to “fire” mode. Neither time was there a finger near the trigger. If Remington even suspects there is an issue they should bite the bullet and perform a full recall of any gun in question, regardless of how long ago it was manufactured. Yes, gun safety is key to preventing an accident in a controlled situation. But…accidents do happen. Case in point, I was on a hunting trip last fall in the high country of Wyoming. There was about a foot of snow on the ground. I was heading down a steep slope with my 700 on my shoulder, when I unknowingly stepped on a slippery log under the snow. I ended up landing hard on my back in the blink of an eye. Luckily no misfire, but it could have been bad for the guy behind me if it had.

  15. I was just reading about deaths from accidental discharge (remington 700) and had the same experience with m new Sako model 85. I own three of them, all purchased new and one would discharge when closing the bolt or moving the safety. As a firearms safety instructor I immediately contacted Sako Beretta USA and sent it to their CA authorized service center. I fully expected to see a recall. Their center repaired it saying it was a loose screw. In my opinion when a loose screw does this it’s a defect and should be fixed, I have not used any of the three rifles since.

  16. I unfortunately had a misfire occur back in 2010. I own a model 770 300 Winchester mag rifle with the walker trigger in it. I own SEVERAL pistols and rifles and have never experienced ANY misfires. So needless to say it was not mishandling the gun. I simply turned the safety off with my right thumb and BOOM! Eight stitches in my forehead and nose. Fingers were behind the trigger on the stock. No where close to trigger. So for those who say it can’t happen, all I can say is don’t point that rifle in any direction you wouldn’t fire a round in.

  17. Too funny. Or sad actually.

    Now that the big green has come clean it is is interesting to read about all the apologists who thought remmy could walk on water.

    It is quite clear that the trigger group is faulty and not only was known to be bad, but continued to be bad for years.

    Remmy was trying to cover up possibly the world’s largest gun defect, while hiding behind muzzle safety rules, and those who would still defend remington if it was sold china.

    Everyone reading this knows someone who has had an unintentional discharge from a faulty rem 700. Everyone! That’s a significant portion of the gun community. We are so much better than this. Remington must pay for their transgressions.

  18. Over the last 50 years of shooting I have had 3 rifles shoot unintentionally. Because I was trained not to allow a rifle to point at anyone no one was hurt. There were hurt feelings some property damage No lost limbs or fatalities. One of the issues was with a Ruger. There was enough play between the top of the bolt and the action that the bolt raised up off of the trigger assy. The fix was to sleave the rear of the bolt. The other two were Remington 700s made decades before the Rifles in the Recall. One was snow and ice had frozen the trigger to the rear position when I had tried to fire with the safety on. Later back at camp when I went to unload the rifle it fired when I turned off the safety lever. The other was also a Remington 700 that fired as I closed the bolt. That rifle was made in 1963 The accidental shot happened in 1989 The rifle was clean and had no grease or rust in the trigger group. I was unable to duplicate the failure. I changed to a bench rest trigger without the “safety lever” and due to the use of safety procedures have never had a issue with this as a target rifle. I would install a firing pin safety on it if I was a hunting rifle. However One should note that releasing the lever could still fire the rifle if the trigger is not under the sear. I would suggest simple solution of making the trigger lever with more clearance one the sides to prevent a bond between the lever and the sideplate of the assy. A redesign of trigger group should include a trigger spring like the one used on the AR rifles Eliminating the weight adjustment screw feature altogether.

  19. I have only seen an M-700 trigger fail once in many, many years. It happened to a guy I knew who had ”adjusted” the trigger on his Rem. M-700. He was NOT a QUALIFIED GUNSMITH!! He had set the trigger so light that the rifle would discharge when he closed the bolt with a live round in the chamber.

    I completely, repeat, completely, agree with what Tucson_Jim wrote on 04.05.2014. I can’t add anything else to what he wrote. Proper gun handling saves lives, and I don’t give a DAMN what firearm a person is using. I almost added ”Period!” but that’s kinda been overdone of late.

  20. It has barely been a year since my Remington 700 had its mishap. (The Remington 700 in question is the VTR .308. I had owned the gun for a year or two prior without any problems. I have always been very meticulous in cleaning my firearms and ALWAYS treat them with the proper respect. I never once touched the adjustment of the trigger either.) Unknowingly I made the mistake that hunting season of letting my wife use the gun. This was her first hunting season, and I wanted her to use a gun that I completely trusted, while I resorted to using my 12 gauge. She had practiced with it and I made sure learned all the proper handling procedures. It was around noon when we met up by the four-wheeler to head back to the house for a quick meal, intending to head back out. I had arrived approximately 15 minutes before her so I had the luxury and pride of seeing her emerge from the woods and saunter up to me with a smile, her gun remained pointed at the ground as she used a two handed carry. As she came up the atv she made one last longing look at the woods, undoubtedly hoping she would see her first deer she would be able to take a shot at. I observed as she removed the bottom plate of the magazine and emptied the shells inside. She had a round in the chamber as well, and as many of you readers who own this gun already know, you are unable to slide the bolt back without taking off the guns “safety”. With her fingers carefully away from the trigger assembly she eased off the safety and to my horror the gun fired. Fortunately the bullet went safely into dirt of the field, yet the gun left a nasty bruise on her arm where the butt was resting at the time from the recoil. She has not wanted anything to do with this gun since. After we had gotten home I cleaned the gun and checked for any sign of malfunction. I found none, so it has sat in my gun cabinet since until I got the chance to look into it further.

  21. In May of this year I heard the first about this XMP trigger recall and thought again to the incident the last hunting season. It was so long ago but the details were still fresh in my mind. I did not hesitate with following the instructions of the letter. The letter was listed as a voluntary safety recall for the XMP trigger, I knew without even having to double check at this point that the recall pertained to my gun. I followed the directions and I received a prepaid postage box for my gun (for which I was grateful). Then I packaged the gun as if it were a child being sent outside to play in the middle of winter, taking care to cover every inch so it wouldn’t be jostled during postage. I sent the gun to Remington with high hopes at the end of May, my dealings with them up to this point had been ideal. That was the last moment I had any respect or faith in Remington Arms…
    It took Remington until the middle of June, approximately three weeks after the package was postmarked, to receive an email that my gun had been received in New York, where it was to be repaired. I live in Wisconsin about an hour drive from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Yet it took my package three weeks to be received by Remington! This was my first sign of Remington’s incompetence, though I was unaware of it at the time. I still trusted the workmanship of the firearms they produced, ignorant of the truth.
    It was the beginning of September that I got impatient for my rifle. It has been growing colder in Wisconsin and I have already witnessed a few geese that have started the migration south for the upcoming winter. My mind has been turning to the preparation for the fall gun hunting season. So I gave Remington customer service to check on its status, as I had heard nothing about it since it had been received 12 weeks ago, which was the indicated minimum expected waiting period. It was a female who answered and though I cannot for the life of me remember her name, I remember the conversation as an unpleasant one (I was put on hold for customer service for about an hour at the very beginning).
    It started good enough; I asked if I could be informed on how long my gun would take to complete the process. She found my information soon enough, but I was informed that the gun had still not advanced past the stage of being logged in as received. Baffled I asked her what was taking so long and got the expected reply that there were a large amount of guns being affected by the recall. I persisted to ask when I should expect my gun to be processed and the new trigger installed, which I thought would be the case. She told me the same as the first letter I had received, that the process takes a minimum of 12 weeks, which I had informed her I had already waited. I asked if I could do anything to speed up the process, but was told that there was nothing they could do, unless I wanted the firearm returned unprocessed. To have this happen I would have had to sign a waiver relieving Remington from any malfunction of the firearm in the future. I was appalled and told her about the incident I had already had with the firearm, which had resulted in the bruising and emotional scarring it had parted upon my wife. How could a company such as Remington, that was a “top dog” in the world of gun and ammunition manufacturing, not care about its consumers? Who purchases products and stocks from them? This IS a serious safety issue that I did not feel I could not sleep knowing was left unresolved. When I asked if I could get my rifle sent back with a new trigger, to have a trusted licensed gunsmith do the repair work, as it would be faster than waiting the 12 weeks I already had, I was told NO!
    At that point the emotion got the better of my judgment and I relayed some of these feeling to the customer service representative. She expressed her resolve for my situation, but it felt like she was repeating a recording, as she probably tried her best to comfort so many others going through the same ordeal as myself. I also inquired about the exact process that my firearm would undergo so that I had an idea of what was taking so long. She informed me that instead of replacing the defective trigger, they were simply cleaning up the excessive bonding agent, testing them, and then sending them back. I was dumbfounded, and knowing that I was going to get no other information from the lady, I asked if I could speak to her superior, to which she also denied me the right. Before I said anything else I might regret, I hung up on her.
    I could see in my head the image of my gun among so many others with the same problem, accidents waiting to happen. What’s worse, they were most likely being stored in a humid warehouse collecting dust as they wait to be “fixed”. I HAVE HAD ENOUGH! I could not stand the not knowing, so I utilized my resources to do some digging on Remington, and what I have found I could not believe, had it not happened to myself.
    It has been two weeks since I made the phone call and still have received no further contact from Remington, the company I was previously a supporter of. In those two weeks I did some extensive research on the subject, and have found forums, news articles, and court lawsuits I was unaware of in the past. The majority of the injuries and fatalities described seemed to be under the same circumstances as what happened to me. It sickened me as I realized just how lucky we were to get away with bruises with what took others lives. Proper gun handling had saved us for sure, of that I had no doubt, but for me to be just hearing about it made me nauseous. It makes my stomach turn just writing this now.
    When I had brought the Remington 700 I had no idea of these safety risks that were present. I looked up the gun and did the standard research on safety, reliability, and accuracy, but I had never stumbled upon these articles in the past. To find out that Remington was aware of the issue for years was a real blow. If you read into this they left out a vital safety piece that the creator of the XMP triggers (aka the Walker trigger) had designed to act as a safeguard against his innovative connecting device between the trigger and the sear. It makes the trigger pull smoother for a value of an aftermarket adjustable trigger. But if they had included the safeguard to connect the device to the trigger to prevent this, it would have cost pennies more to manufacture each gun, and Remington apparently had greed and profits cloud their common sense.
    If they had come out at the beginning and added this piece and increased the price of each rifle by even twenty dollars, it would have been more honest than what has turned into a travesty. Yet they stand wringing blood from their hands, trying to cover-up a lie with another. Now, I am not a gunsmith or “expert” by any means, but I have a fair amount of mechanical aptitude (to be modest). I am quite certain that simply removing “excessive bonding agents” will not fix this issue.
    To know that many people know about this already is shocking, but perhaps others do not and will take this for what it is; a wakeup call! How many lies and cover-ups will we stand from these tyrants? Call it improper gun handling or what you will; I call it murder. So many people have bought and used these guns; even the military has used them, men and women fighting and dying for our country (I pray these guns have not caused any unnecessary casualties). I love my country and cannot fathom such losses that a company profited on by leaving out one vital piece
    I have made a vow to myself to never buy a Remington product again in the future. I might try to sell the two Remington guns I currently own, but am unsure if I could, not knowing what shoddy craftsmanship remains unseen. Sure my Remington 700 is going to come back “fixed and tested”. Yet these rifles were tested before with no problems, how long before it happens again and I’m not so lucky? As soon as I receive my rifle back I plan to take it to a local gunsmith who I TRUST and have the gun PROFESSIONALLY examined. Then I am going to have a non Remington trigger, one that I can RELY on, installed correctly.
    I have told this story to my family and friends, or anyone who cares to hear the TRUTH. Everyone has their own opinion on the subject, and mine may be one-sided as Remington has again not contacted me, but I sincerely hope if anyone is going to buy one of these guns that they read my account. For the sake of them and their loved ones, or even bystanders caught in the crossfire… It is hard to ignore so many accounts and I hope that maybe, just maybe, the executives at Remington Arms might read this and get their acts together, but it is too late for this me to change my mind unless overwhelming evidence magically turns up in their favor. I highly doubt that will happen though….

  22. I am sorry for the “essay”, I just thought it might make the weight on my chest in the matter relieved if only someone might read my story (or ramblings) and find some truth in it. I am sick of the lies.

  23. It seems that Remington did start to add an epoxy to these connectors to attach to trigger, but I still am not pleased. Apparently grinding off a portion MIGHT fix this issue, but if not done well enough it can make the matter worse. If these triggers left the factory unsafe before who is to say they will do proper work now? I am going to contact Remington early next week and end this once and for all. I have wasted over 3 months without my rifle, and I either need my rifle back immediately so I can have a safer trigger installed by November, or the money that I paid for the gun so that I can purchase a new gun. P.S. It will not be a 700

  24. I just about broke my shoulder yesterday during my kids first target practice when my Remington 700 30-06 went off when I released the safety! No finger on trigger at all as soon as I clicked the safety and trying to teach my kids about safety BANG it went off! Good thing I was in shoot position but it was not in pocket and slammed into my shoulder bone. Hurts like hell!!!!! And scared the hell out of my kids!!!!! GREAT WAY TO TEACH KIDS ABOUT WEAPON SAFETY’S!!!!
