I had one, I found the add in the back of a magazine saying that there was a class action law suit, I filed the paper work and later received about $40. Can anyone tell me more about that deal? Have anyone elses barrela blown up or what?
$40 bucks for a few fingers, sounded like a good deal at the time.

You only got $40 bucks because the lawyers had to take their hard earned piece of the pie

Perhaps you should have turned in your gun for repair instead of hurting the gun manufacturer and weaking the gun industry and gun owners.

WTF? Remington produced some barrels with problems. Remington agreed to those who purchased the weapons basically a refund or post-purchase price reduction. Had the weapons been returned it would have cost Remington more in materials & labor and that would have caused what you described! A replacement barrel is a lot more than $40.00 even back then.

IIRC... the problem involved very few weapons or was barrel finish related (I can't recall, but at the time I was responsible for weapons maintenance and I was not concerned about allowing an unsafe weapon on the street because of the recall/class action suit) and had it to do with safety they would not let you keep a barrel that would blow up and give you $40.00 to do so!
