Thanks. For anyone else who may be interested I included the broad strokes from the recall notice here. Basically if your rifle was manufactured between Jul-Oct last year the safety may fail. There is a function at http://www.remington.com that allows you to enter the serial number from your rifle to see if it is affected by the recall. Remington will pay all associated shipping and repair costs if necessary.
One of the most important pieces of equipment that you will take hunting is a good quality pair of optics and they take some care to give you the performance that you want. So here are a few tips.
Use some alcohol and cheese cloth to clean the lenses. I will usually pick up an extra cleaning kit from my optician when I have my eyes examined.
Don't touch the lens with your fingers. If there is a stick or a bug on them blow it off.
Use the lens covers. They are there...
