Was there any truth to the recent claims of these rifles firing when the bolt was cycled or the safety switched?

Hasn't happened to me. In fact I think my trigger is a bit heavy.

There were a bunch of lawsuits but I believe, someone yea or nay me here, that Remington fought every one and won every one. It was profiled on I think CNBC as a hit piece but Remington came out smelling like a rose.

I have never had my Remington 700 discharge accidentally.

Here are some videos that expose the CNBC folks as complete hack jobs. It's worth a look.
Remington has not fought every lawsuit in court. Some have been settled.

Only when modified by "gunsmiths" to unsafe levels or fire controls that were found to be EXTREMELY dirty.

DING, DING, DING!

Saw a 700ML do it once at a range. I asked the guy to let me break it down and when I removed the trigger pins I had to pry the trigger out. It was caked with so much Pyrodex residue mixed with oil that the sear couldn't reset properly. He refused to even take it home, I bought it for $50 and let the trigger soak in Hoppes' for a few hours, cleaned it up and it was perfect.

Similar experience here with my late 80s .270 ADL. It is still shooting lights out and it was also purchased from K-Mart. My late grandfather bought it for me when I was 13 or so and it has been a GREAT rifle by all means.
