Remington, Model 700 .243 Caliber Rifle, Walker Trigger under fire

Posted on Nov 09, 2015

Product liability lawsuit seeks damages for "Walker Trigger" causing unintended discharge on Model 700 .243 caliber bolt-action rifle manufactured by Remington. Lawsuit claims Remington knew as early as 1970 that the “Walker trigger can cause the rifles to fire a round when the safety lever is released to the fire position, without the trigger being pulled, because of the manner in which components of the trigger mechanism interact. Remington estimated that at least 20,000 rifles would inadvertently fire merely by releasing the safety, but decided against a recall.”
