As a public service, SAGA would like to bring the following recall to your attention:


Remington Arms Company, LLC (“Remington”) is voluntarily recalling Remington Model 700™ and Model Seven™ rifles which were manufactured from May 1, 2006 to April 9, 2014 and which have an X-Mark Pro® (“XMP®”) trigger. Rifles manufactured after April 9, 2014 are not part of the recall.


To check if your rifle is part of the recall use the link below where there is an option to enter your rifle’s serial number. There is also more information on the recall. Remington have warned that if you have one of these rifles that you should stop using it.




SAGA has spoken to Formalito who are the South African agent for Remington. Formalito confirm that they have received the new triggers and are making arrangements with gunsmiths around the country to do the work. They hope to be ready to begin the trigger replacements by mid-August. The replacement of the trigger will be free of charge and the “old” trigger must be handed in. As soon as more details are available, Formalito will let us know and we will send them out.
