"Gunfight: Remington Under Fire"

CNBC continues its investigation into allegations of a deadly defect and corporate cover-up by an iconic American company. In 2010, CNBC presented an original report that examined accusations that the world's most popular hunting rifle is susceptible to firing without pulling the trigger, and that its manufacturer, Remington Arms, has been aware of the problem for decades. Now, in a newly updated documentary, CNBC reveals unsealed company documents, once secret, that shed light on how Remington handled the alleged defect – one that's been linked in court battles to dozens of deaths and scores of injuries. The story, told through corporate insiders and a father searching for answers about the death of his son, also explores how information about potentially defective and dangerous products sometimes remains hidden in confidential legal settlements.
