Wondering about what to do now.

What is there to wonder about?
I have a Remington 700 SPS that was put away after purchasing it in 2008.
I did not become aware of the recall on the XMP trigger until recently (only because of Youtube). The recall web site seems to think that my serial number is subject to the recall.

I am not entirely happy with the idea of sending the gun out into the void, possibly to never return. The beer pandemic had bad enough effect for disrupting things.

I am inclined to keep the gun in my hands and spend a couple of hundred $$$ to replace the trigger assembly with a third party unit. I have had two gun shops reassure me that sending it to the factory is still a good idea.

I have submitted the service ticket, and I am waiting for the shipping container to arrive.
But I still wonder, as I wander.

The Remington Authorized Service Center (LGS) in the Tulsa metro, while owed ~$52,000 in back warranty work receivables, has been assured future warranty work will be promptly reimbursed although Remington had a reputation for floating the money for 6-8 months.

Remington has a lot more going on than worrying about 12 year old triggers. People are losing their livelihoods. What is wrong with your trigger, anything?

Why bother? https://riflebasix.com/product/remingto ... igger-l-1/ . . . $114 gets you a Rifle Basix and you're done. If you don't care to send off your rifle, you certainly don't have to. Your choice.

“The bankruptcy impacts all of our employees at all of our sites: Ilion, Huntsville, Alabama, Madison, North Carolina, Lonoke, Arkansas — every single employee,” Hogue said.

“We have no idea what the outcome will be. It’s up for auction and the courts will determine how it’s to be sold — whether all in one piece or separately. We have no idea.”

It will be interesting to see who, if anyone even bids on ‘all or part’ of Remington.

Marlin “went“ when they became involved with Remington.

So much for Remington’s lifetime warranty.

You may well be correct, but let’s see what happens next month.

They "went"? The Kenna family sold out for the money, just that simple.

The Remington Arms Co. appears on the verge of being sold off in pieces following its second Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing in just over two years.

The federal judge overseeing the bankruptcy case, Clifton R. Jessup in Decatur, Alabama, has scheduled a hearing for Tuesday on whether to approve the process, which would see Remington’s various businesses — which operate under the umbrella Remington Outdoor Co. — auctioned off as soon as Sept. 8.

So, probably firearms and ammunition divisions will be auctioned separately. It will be interesting to see if the Remington name will be retained for either or both. Thanks for the update Randy.

There isn't any reason to speculate: tomorrow's hearing may well determine the trajectory forward.

Yep. Here`s hoping the results of the hearing tomorrow will be made public.

Despite the bankruptcy case being filed only last month, Remington – the nation’s oldest gun maker, based in Madison, North Carolina – already is planning to sell off its holdings in a Sept. 17 auction.

Jessup on Tuesday approved a schedule for the Sept. 17 auction that allows the Sandy Hook families and others to object to the sale by Sept. 1. He dismissed the families’ objection to the schedule.

So, it’s over for Remington?

It’s not over until the lawyers get their money! Then, it’s over.
