Remington will replace triggers on some rifles

ST. LOUIS -- The gun manufacturer Remington Arms Co. will replace trigger mechanisms on Model 700 bolt-action hunting rifles, or provide some compensation to buyers, as part of a settlement of class-action lawsuits, the company said Thursday.

Suits filed in Missouri and Washington state claimed the rifle has a defective trigger mechanism that can cause injury or death. They claimed Model 700 rifles sometimes fire unexpectedly, without a trigger pull. The settlements announced Thursday still must be finalized in court.
