  1. I appreciate the recall of this rifle, but wonder about how many weeks Remington will have it! Deer gun opens here Nov 8th, so this is not good news. SO, I hope you will expedite service….I’ve owned Remington since 1960! Other guns as well, but learned to wing shoot w/ the 870 pump…which I still own…..Dave Miller
