Remington Sportsman 78, Model Seven and 710 bolt-action rifles 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 these rifles may be loaded or unloaded 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. 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. Remington wants you to enjoy the shooting sports - safely!
