    Similar design to the Remington 700 that's been called into question?

    Close but ...

    Remington has problems too but the two weapons are nothing alike
    here is the bolt-face for the 700... notice the lugs and extractor pin???


    Now here is the Ventures Bolt-face... three lugs almost the same you find on a Mauser style with the plunger type extractor...


    From what I've read so far the problem may lay in the set screw that's used to adjust trigger pull/weight...
