So can anyone actually specifically identify the component of the trigger system that needs checking?

All the American forums are awash with people buying Timneys when it's nothing more than the possibility of some excess thread locker.

That serial number checker is full of shite.

I just checked two factory 700P's with the remington factory LE adjustable trigger (with the ribbed shoe) and they came up as being affected by the recall.

So, on another note - who to send to in New Zealand?

I have three, none brought at the same shop or in the same part of New Zealand for that matter.  What a pain in the arse if they have to go back to the point of sale!

What happens for second-owner firearms?

Or - is this going to be a typical NZ distributor cover-up - Oh, no problem with the ones shipped to NZ; we've checked!

Someone has said elsewhere that on completing the forms Remington will send you post paid packaging to ship them to the repairer they have selected.

Do we have the repairer yet?  If in NZ, not so much hassle - perfect timing for the roar however isn't it?

Got some more info from the NZ distributor....

Don't panic. Its an American cover their ass press release. Basically all they know is that its likely to be excess loctite which would cause the trigger to not function. So if your rifle shoots ok, its going to be ok. However, they have asked Remington for more info and will put out a notice in all hunting press once they know more.

whua whua whuaaaa...

too bad aye, too much loctite aye.
put my number in...
YOU RIFLE IS EFFECTED BY THE RECALL.

So I sent them an email explaining my particular situation.

ya see, all that extra glue everyone else got, well mine got none!
my trigger mech fell apart! Thankfully good ole scott trail managed to fix it all up for me.
That was about 3 years ago. Its one ragged hole...
its not leaving my sight!
oh yeah that and wouldnt be covered as it has now been modified.
