Remington never "fixed" the issue until a couple years ago with their new trigger. Changing the safety to allow the bolt to work with safety on did not fix the problem. It simply made it possible to unload the rifle with the safety on. On the documentary, they show police 700 sniper rifles built in the 90's going off when the safety is released. One rifle does it repeatedly. The engineer that designed the 700 finally broke his silence and detailed the problem and Remingtons refusal to fix the problem. The designer showed copies of his memos he wrote documenting the problem.
Having said that, none of my 700's have ever had an a.d. Two of my 77's have done it multiple times.
