Remington asks judge to dismiss lawsuit over rifle
First Published Aug 06 2013 01:36 pm • Last Updated Aug 06 2013 01:36 pm

HELENA, Mont. • Gun manufacturer Remington has asked a judge to dismiss a proposed class-action lawsuit by Montanans who bought a type of rifle that can reportedly misfire without the trigger being pulled.

Allen Bowker and Eric Huleatt filed their lawsuit in June on behalf of thousands of Montana residents who purchased a Remington Model 700.

They allege the manufacturer’s parent companies knew the rifle’s trigger assembly was defective and did nothing to warn customers or fix the problem.

They are seeking a judge’s ruling that Remington owes them for their economic loss for overpaying for the defective rifles.

Attorneys for the manufacturer said Monday time has run out on the warranties for the two named plaintiffs who filed the complaint.

They say only one of the plaintiffs claims his gun actually misfired.
