Remington Model 700 Muzzleloaders are not included in the safety modification program. These rifles have been manufactured since 1982 and do not have a bolt-lock mechanism. As a result the bolt may be opened on these rifles and the "cap" or "primer" may be removed with the safety in the “S” or “On Safe” position.
Nevertheless, as with any firearm, special care must be taken during the loading and unloading process, and particular care must be taken when loading or unloading a muzzleloader. Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. Always unload your rifle when not actually in use. Keep the safety in the “S” or “On Safe “ position at all times until you are ready to shoot.
Every firearm should be unloaded as soon as you are finished shooting - before taking it into your car, camp or house.
