A reminder to all Remington rifle owners: The federal class-action lawsuit concerning Remington’s rifle triggers has been settled, and the settlement involves two classes. You may be eligible to have your firearm retrofitted or receive other benefits. But a significant deadline is approaching on Nov. 18, 2016.
The first class includes owners of firearms that utilize a trigger connector. The second class includes owners of firearms that utilize the X-Mark Pro trigger mechanism that is the subject of Remington’s voluntary safety recall. The settlement allows owners of Remington models 700, Seven, and related models to have their trigger replaced free of charge, among other benefits.
The allegations are that Remington firearms can fire without a trigger pull. Remington denies those allegations with respect to the trigger connector but is offering trigger replacements for its valued customers. With respect to X-Mark Pro trigger mechanisms, Remington has implemented a voluntary safety recall.
Even if you do nothing you will be bound by the Court's decisions. If you want to keep your right to sue the Defendants yourself, you must exclude yourself from the Settlement Class by November 18, 2016. If you stay in the Settlement Class, you may object to the Settlement by November 18, 2016.
