There was also an article on Fox news yesterday about it. Recall on about 7-1/2 million rifles.

From what I read, not all older rifles/models will accept the replacement trigger. In that case, you get a $10 or $15 voucher. I guess if you've had a rifle that long and it hasn't been discharging unintentionally then it's no big deal.

I bought a 700 police about 6 months ago. it doesn't have the xmark pro trigger in it. It has a serrated trigger face. I think its the 40x but I really dont know.  Its a good trigger,  and i have it set to about 3.5 pounds.  Im wondering if I should just leave it as is or replace it with a Timney 517.

The ribbed trigger in Model 700s is typically the XMark, forerunner of the XMarkPro, which is the one that has issues. Clueless as to the police version 700.

Ernie,
I've never heard anything but praise for Jewell triggers, but can't say the same for another rpl brand mentioned in this thread. As far as keeping solvents off trigger mechanisms, there is so much talk about how to treat triggers, including leaving them bone dry, that i'm really unsure these days of best practices.

For anyone else reading this, cause I know most of the guys here are aware of what I'm going to say is, that you should never use carburetor cleaner as a substitute as I've seen this in text on various forums throughout as some people either say this because it's cheaper and the auto parts guys tell them it's the same thing or perhaps folks just hear bad info from time to time. Carb cleaner while similar, has a corrosive residue left behind after it evaporates and brake cleaner does not or at least the CRC Brak-Kleen brand doesn't anyway.

Good point, Roy. 

Also, since I mentioned AR cleaning, if using brake cleaner for getting the grime off your AR bolt carrier group, make sure you remove the extractor assembly before you apply the brake cleaner. I'm not sure how "friendly" the chemicals in the cleaner are with the rubber O ring and spring. (Mainly the O ring.) 
Once the extractor is removed, brake cleaner makes a terrific for AR's BCG and chamber.

Yeah, that's a good point. Maybe it states on the can of Brak-Kleen if it is harmful to rubber O-rings. I use it on my bolt action rifles to clean the bolt assembly and the trigger assembly and because it is an aerosol, the power helps blow out any of the oil and or dirt/dust from the trigger assembly which you won't get by using Zippo by just pouring it down into the trigger assembly.

Just went to CRC's website and found this info regarding rubber seals. In short, they say it is safe for use on rubber seals, however on the basic specs info, it does say that it is not safe for plastic. If it were me, regarding what cheaptrick stated on use for cleaning AR's, I would just simply follow-up using any type of high grade oil, such as CLP, EEzox, Rem-Oil etc.

CRC Brak-Kleen

After working on automobiles professionally for too many years Brakeklean better be ok to use on rubber. Too many rubber seals in brake calipers and wheel cylinders for it not to be. Yes carb cleaner is different.

I see nothing wrong with tuning a Remington trigger. It is easy and the results may surprise the nay sayers.

If folks would bring their 700 triggers to someone who actually know WTF they were doing, there wouldn't be as big of an aftermarket for replacement triggers. Not for hunting rifles anyway.

Welcome to Optics Talk.

I just duly advised folks not to unnecessarily expose the rubber O ring and the spring to cleaners of most any sort.  
As part of my cleaning regiment, I always take the O ring out and lay it to the side as I clean the rest of the parts, at times with brake cleaner, but not always. The O ring and spring generally get a little bit of CLP of some sort, or just wiped off with a trusty toothbrush.    

Again, it's just me and the way I do stuff.

Are you talking about over all gun cleaning, or triggers, or what? This thread sort of looped around the axle a bit from it's original post. 

For the record, I only use brake cleaner on my AR. Zippo lighter fluid for my triggers on my bolt rifles.
