Date Code on this Remington Woodsmaster 742’s barrel is P V, manufactured in June of 1979, the next to last year of production before the 7400 came online in 1981. It comes to us from the estate of its original local West Tennessee owner. The 742 is the most popular semi-auto center fire ever built, and rightly so. These rifles are attractive, durable, and accurate. Manufacturer, of course, is Remington Arms of Ilion, New York. Type is gas operated semi automatic high powered rifle. Construction is steel barrel, steel receiver and internal parts, and semi gloss anodized alloy trigger group housing with push button safety that favors right handed shooters. Trigger is original .250 smooth faced steel, that pulls at 3 3/4 pounds with less than 1/4 inch of travel. Barrel is 22 inch, 1:10 rifling. Sights are screw on serrated base front, with dovetailed blade; and BDL type windage and elevation adjustable rear. Scope is an original period correct, Korea made Bushnell 3x9x32 Sportview, mounted with Kwik-Site alloy wide see-through rings. Trigger is Buttstock and Forend are original press checkered, DuPont RKW finish. Buttstock length of pull is a short but original 13 1/4 inches from the trigger face to the end of the original alloy buttplate. Buttstock cants about 3/4 inch to the right at the butt, so this rifle will not be comfortable for a southpaw without a stock man working it. Swivel studs are correct Uncle Mike’s sling mounts. Sling is genuine leather padded, with engraved deer scene. Sling is not brand marked. Magazine is internal box style 4 shot steel factory, capacity 4 + 1 rounds of .30-06 Springfield caliber ammunition. Weight empty is just over 7 pounds. Surface detractions on this 742 are moderate, principally muzzle whitening and edge wear from case contact, and moderate amounts of weathering and scouring to the walnut. Blue finish shows occasional freckling and toning. We rate this 742 as Very Good, 75 percent vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright and clean with no internal detractions. Bolt rails inside the receiver are full and smooth, with none of the warning sign chew marks a person often sees on 742s. We estimate it has been fired fewer than 200 rounds in the deer woods of the Forked Deer and Hatchie River Basins here in West Tennessee. We have test fired and cleaned this rifle. This is a very attractive, eminently serviceable specimen of Remington’s best loved Auto. Replacement price on this rifle’s descendants in our area is $800 apiece or more.
