It does sound like a raw deal for owners.
It really makes me wonder how the heck a RIFLE company can design and sell a rifle without a problem like this showing up in pre-market testing. I mean, this must be a basically uncorrectable problem, or they would have done a repair/rebuild recall. For it to be incompatible or unsafe with the only ammo it is chambered for; well, that's an error of almost unimaginable proportions.
Anyone who has a new-in-box one will probably be able to sell it as a "discontinued Remington" collectible, but used ones won't be worth much.
