A final settlement has been approved in a class action lawsuit against Remington that alleges trigger defects in as many as 7.5 million Remington guns. The landmark settlement allows owners of these popular Remington firearms to have the triggers replaced free of charge, reducing the threat of accidental discharges.
The class action lawsuit alleges that the triggers in these guns are defective and can cause the guns to fire without someone pulling the trigger. Despite thousands of documents that show Remington knew about the defect and covered it up for decades, Remington denies any wrongdoing in the case.
