ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI- There's a settlement in a lawsuit that claimed a popular hunting rifle has a defective trigger mechanism that can cause injury or death.

Remington Arms Co. was sued over its Model 700 bolt-action hunting rifle.

The nationwide class-action suit was settled last week and a federal judge gave the sides until October to reach a formal agreement.

The lawsuit claimed the rifle can fire without pulling the trigger and sought a court-order for a recall.

It also called for Remington to cover the losses of gun owners who say the faulty trigger mechanism makes their rifles useless.

The settlement does not say if the company agreed to a recall or if it will reimburse the rifle owners.
