How do you load an unload a Remington Woodsmaster Model 740 30-06?
The Remington Model 740 is a magazine fed rifle. The magazine is removed by pushing on the small lever which is on the bottom of the magazine and pulling the magazine straight down. Four rounds of ammunition are loaded into the magazine and the magazine replaced in the rifle. Pull the forearm of the rifle back and push it forward to chamber a round.
Beware: The 30-06 round packs considerable punch when fired in such a light rifle. Recoil should be seriously considered.

What is the value of a Remington Woodsmaster Model 740 rifle with high-power scope and hard case all in very good condition?

My Remington 81 ser#162xx was manufactured 07/1941 There should be a two letter code on the barrel. you can cross reference the two letter code to a production date on Remingtons website.
Answer . \nRemoving the bolt handle is a bit involved. If you slide the ejection port dust cover back and forth slightly until the cut-out on the top of the dust cover is over the bolt handle top you will see the end of a pin. This pin holds the bolt handle in place in the bolt. Unless you have …the ability to completely take-down this rifle and then re-assemble it to working order, and have the tools to do so, it is NOT recommended you remove the bolt handle retaining pin.

Answer . To load onto a chairlift safely first you must have confidence. If you are nervous you are bound to do something stupid, usually by accident. If you are really unsure ask the lifty to either help you put down the bar, or slow down the chair. Usually if you let them know they will help out.… Stand towards the hill and twist around with your arm out to where the chair will come. When it comes hold onto the back with your arm and sit. The chair will sweep under you and away you go. If the lifty did not lower the bar for you, do so as soon as possible. . To get off, raise the bar no farther than 10 metres away from the end station. Lift the tips of your skis or snowboard and raise your poles if you have them. Wait until your feet are firmly on the snow and then stand up. Use your poles or push against the chair to get off. Try to go straight and keep your skis parallel. . This is exactly how you are supposed to do it but by far the best way is to go to the local ski school and get a lesson. They will be able to help you better than anyone else and they will usually keep you from getting nervous, therefore avoiding doing something stupid. They have taken an expensive and extremely professional course and then taken an exam and passed it and if they didn't they need to retake part of the course and re-do the exam until they pass. They are extremely good and professional and very much people persons. It is by far the best way to go. (MORE)
I just sold mine for $200.00. I took it to a gun shop and that's what they told me I should ask for it. By the way, it was in excellent condition. Also had a scope and carrying case. That set up should sell anytime for $400.
Answer . The 30-06 appears to have been one of the few calibers in this model that made it thru the complete life cycle of the 760 Gamemaster, which was fron 1952 to 1980.
You can call Remington at 1-800-243-9700 and go thru the menu selection. One of the menu options is to request information on your Remington based off the serial number. You read off your serial number and the guy looks up in the database the year the gun was made and what the original barrel was fo…r that gun (if gun had barrel options like shotguns do). (MORE)

Answer . 300 to 500 depending on condition and accessories. The rifle can be replaced for under $500
Remove the magazine and cycle the action. Put safety "on-safe". Drift out the two crosspins in the receiver. Move trigger group forward, down and out. This assembly can be cleaned as a group with aerosols such as Gun Scrubber. Remove the large bolt in the front of the forend, then the forend can …be slid forward and off. There is a large roll-pin which secures the action tube to the gas tube housing. USING A ROLL-PIN PUNCH, drift out the pin. Using a standard type punch will damage the pin. Bring the bolt to the rear and hold it there. Slide the bracket you just drifted the pin out of toward the rear and tip the action tube downward and then forward. DO NOT RELEASE THE BOLT or you will damage the gas tube. Slowly allow the bolt to move forward as you remove the action tube. You can now remove the recoil spring carefully (it is under tension). The barrel is held on by the large nut at the bottom front of the receiver. Be exceptionally careful to match the wrench to the nut (there are special tools available, and they should be used). The nut removes counter-clockwise as viewed from the front. Remove the forend stabilizer spring mounted behind the nut as well. Move the bolt halfway back to the rear again, then move the barrel forward out of the receiver. Move the bolt back forward, then turn the barrel 90 degrees and remove it from the action bars. The bolt handle is retained by a small cross pin. You will have to position the ejection port cover and bolt just so to see it. It is drifted downward for removal, then remove the bolt handle. This allows the bolt and action bar assembly to be removed through the front of the receiver. When cleaning, pay attention to the gas ports in the barrel (there is a special tool available). (MORE)
depending on condition of the wood and the finish on the steel, as well as the rifling in the barrel and the action of the bolt... your price could range between $250-$450
Priceless, I have killed over twenty deer with mine. It is one of the best shooting rifles I have found.
The value of this will depend on the market. You can take it in toyour local pawn store to find out the current value.
Your rifle was manufactured around 1974 or 1975. For a moreaccurate date look on the left side of the barrel for tw letters.The second one indicates the year, a y is for 1974 and a z is for1975.
Many of the rifles are valued in price close to $300 each. Theamount will vary depending upon the condition they are in.
Many Remington rifles manufactured prior to 1968 did not have serial numbers. You can find a date code on the left side of the barrel near the breech.. The Remington Society website http://www.remingtonsociety.com contains a page that contains a listing of the date codes and their corresponding mon…ths and years. (MORE)
Condition is EVERYTHING with 742's. Have you tried checking sites (like AR15.com, Gunbroker, or AuctionArms) to find one similar to yours?. Condition:.

No obvious dents, very little obvious wear, NO rust) / $440. 90% - (perfect working condition, no obvious loss of bluing, no rust, VERY minor handling dings in the stock) / $380. 80% - (some finish wear from normal use, but 100% functional (742's "weak point" is part in the gas system that's a PITA to clean, but it has to be done to keep them functioning reliably). Except for normal wear, the rifle should look like it was well kept and cleaned) / $330. 70% - (at least 90% of the bluing and anodizing left, light "character marks" on the metal and wood from normal handling. SAFE to shoot, and reliable) / $295. 60% - (obviously used, at least 80% finish left, a few "dropped rifle dents" are acceptable. But the rifle is safe and reliable) / $255 (MORE)

How do you get the bullets unloaded from an inherited Model 925 38 SW handgun that is loaded with bullets?
I think you have a Harrington and Richardson 925 in .38S&W. It is a top break revolver.. KEEP YOUR FINGERS AWAY FROM THE TRIGGER WHILE YOU DO THIS.. In a top break revolver, the frame is hinged at the bottom front of the cylinder. Releasing the lock, (should be at the top of the frame - might requ…ire some backward pulling to engage) and pushing the barrel down brings the cylinder up. This will exposes the rear of the cylinder. For most top break revolvers, the act of pivoting the barrel and cylinder operates an extractor that pushes the cartridges in the chambers back far enough that they will fall free, or can be removed . If you can't get it to work, leave it alone and find a qualified gun smith. (MORE)
You can't shoot reloads in the 742 or it will jam. My guess is they expand just enough to jam. When I first got mine 18 years ago I had the same problem. Since then I only shoot with new shells.
Can a magazine latch from a later model Remington rifle be substituted for the original from a Remington 740?
If you are referring to the magazine latch style from the Remington Model 7400, yes it can be used on the Remington Model 740, but you'll also need to use the spring that goes with the newer style. These latches (newer style) are available in varying heights numbering from 0 thru 5 so you'll need to… make sure the right height/size is chosen to get correct cartridge feed in your rifle. (MORE)
Underneath the action just ahead of the trigger guard is the loading gate. The shells are pushed into the tube until the tube is loaded. Once 2 (two) shells are in the tube, press the slide release located just ahead of the trigger guard and to the rear of the loading area rearward and rack the slid…e rearward. This action will load one (1) shell into the barrel, allowing room for a 3rd and final shell to be loaded into the tube. To unload the shotgun, press the slide release rearward once again, and repeatedly rack the slide to the rear, ejecting the shells. Do this until the gun is unloaded. (MORE)

The U.S. Model 1903 Springfield Rifle replaced the Krag-Jorgensenand was the primary U.S. battle rifle until 1936. They are worthanywhere from $100 for one in poor shape to $500 or more inexcellent shape depending on the year of the rifle.
I've seen them asking anywhere from $350-700 depending on condition, would say average price would be $450-550 for most guns...if you don't have the magazine. Subtract $40-60.
Contact Remington on their web site. Your question is impossible to answer without the caliber of the rifle
Most air compressors do not have a continuous load, as a result there is a need to control the amount of air entering the system. One way to allow for load swings is to let the air surge tank pressure float between two pressures. To do this you can either start and stop the compressor automatically… to stay with in the required pressure range. Say pressure Pmin and Pmax. During normal requirement(load) of air, compressor will work at below Pmax.But when the requirement(load) decreases, delivery pressure start to increase. And when pressure equalise to Pmax,compressor start to unload(means pressure of the compressor start to decrease). During unloading air inlet valve is closed and delivery pressure decreases till it become equal to Pmin. Working of compressor in this phase is known as unloading. As soon as pressure become equal to Pmin compressor start to load again till it reaches Pmax. working of compressor in this phase is known as loading. (MORE)
Starting in 1921 Remington date code stamped all it's firearms on the barrel. You can look up the details on location and the code table on the Remington Society of America on the Manufactured Date link.
742 dont bring much money and they have a bad rap . In cold weather if you dont let the bolt slam forward on cold mornings they will not fire . Gander moutian and Cabelas will not take them in trade as of now . If you can get more than $ 300.00 for it jump on it .
Check the date code stamp on barrel (see related link) by serial only a call to Remington can give you that answer.
Contact Remington and ask for a manual or find a gunsmith and ask for help
They only made ~250K of them from 1955-1959 obviously that's near the end by serial I can't tell you but the barrel with be marked with the date code for month and year. See related links for details.
There should be a little slide lever next to the clip on the bottom of the rifle. either push in or push forward and the clip will release.
This is the canned answer to the general question "how much is my gun worth". There is no way that this can be determined via a description of the firearm because condition of the item is critical to its value. In addition, whether the gun is considered to be modern or antique will significantly a…ffect not only its value but its saleability in some jurisdictions. The steps necessary to assess a firearm are to first Clearly identify the manufacturer and model of the firearm along with serial number and significant features. Many people choose to not report the full serial number but instead disguise the least significant digits i.e. 1234XX. Features such as finish, barrel length, custom engraving or carving, and stock material may be significant. It may be useful to consult some of the books on gun values such as "The Official Gun Digest Book if Guns & Prices", the "Official Price Guide to Antique and Modern Firearms", the "Standard Catalog of Firearms", or "Flayderman's Guide to Antique American Firearms". All of these resources can provide information for identifying the firearm. The grading systems used to assign values are usually similar between the books although there can be differences. Once the firearm has been identified and condition determined, the "fair market value" can be assessed by consulting the internet market. AuctionArms.com and GunTrader.com can both provide input as to a gun's present market value. If gun shops and/or gun shows are available in your area, taking your gun in for professional inspection can be informative. Look for businesses or individuals who specialize or deal in that type of gun (take a Luger to a Luger collector rather than a shotgun collector). Remember that these people are in the business and will be looking for a "good deal" if one presents itself. Guns, like everything else, usually aren't worth as much as we would like but they can have appreciable value. Good luck. Bock442 (MORE)

The first step is to figure out why it's not cycling correctly in the first place. It could be a number of reasons, and there's no way to tell you how to remedy the problem without first knowing the cause. I'd suggest you take it to a reliable gunsmith.
I have a Remington 244 Woodsmaster Model 740 cant find any shells for it . I asked some people and the said it is know a 6mm is that true?
Yes, I also have a Remington 244. I haven't it shot it in years but it used to work great with Winchester 6mm cartridges. Seemed to jam more with Remington for some odd reason.
The 740 is a slide action rifle, so I assume that you operate the action smartly to promote proper function. What is the nature of the jam? 1) Spent cartridge not removed from the chamber - extractor system failure 2) Spent cartridge not tossed out of the rifle - ejector failure 3) Cartridge w…on't feed into empty chamber - magazine alignment failure.I must add that the Remington model 740 is actually a semi-auto gas feed magazine rifle.I would seriously consider that the rifles gas system(piston,and gas tube could be built up with carbon!)This would require that the rifle be taken apart and the gas system be cleaned,so the rifle may function properly.

It's date code stamped. See related links for information on the Remington Society of America.
It is tapered. Diameter is different at different points. Usually this question arises when someone is shopping for a muzzle brake. Those made for the SKS and Mosin/Nagant have a straight sided barrel, and will not work on Remington.
