I've owned a number of 740, 742, 7400 and even now own a 750. I agree with this (above) and if he wants to sell it for that price, I'd buy/get a box of factory rounds and shoot no less than 10-15 before saying "I'll take it!" The scope may be less than junk. Any idea of what it is? There are lots of deer riding in pick-up trucks that met the driver because of Remington semi-auto rifles, trust me on that one.The 742 has earned the nickname "jam-o-matic" in some circles. The ones that cycle reliably seem to keep doing so, the ones that dont cycle never will. Average buy if it cycles, $250 single shot paper weight if it doesnt.
