ponch, question about the remington 700

watched a program on cnbc last night about a problem with the trigger in the remington 700 rifles
specifically regarding the trigger spacer and unintended discharge resulting from a problem with it, initiated simply by turning the safety off

thoughts... just looking for more background cause the program caught my interest

Start studying these pictures to familiarize yourself with some of the parts I will be talking about. These are photos I took about 6 years ago when I 1st began dealing with this "issue" and looking for my own answers. As you can see even I have known about this for years as it realy hasnt been a secret and anyone dealing with 700's to a great extent has dealt with this question. Again, these are old pics and I am looking to update then for the write up I will do here. CLSB gets the exclusive, I wont be posting this write up anywhere else.
