Remington 742 Value? What Condition? . Most modern guns are graded by percentage of original condition-. 100%= Bluing is intact and not mottled on both the barrel and receiver, wood of the stock and forend is not scratched or nicked and the finish is uniform and original. Other than factory test… firing, the gun was never fired. Generally, new in the box (NIB), if the weapon came in one.. 98%= Usually applies to double action revolvers where there is a slight but evident 'drag' line on the cylinder from the gun being dry fired (the hammer cocked, allowing the cylinder to be rotated repeatedly) even though it was never loaded and fired.. This can be transfered to auto loading rifles if the auto bolt slides show wear (easily tested with a q-tip: If you find a lot of black oil, the bolt has been exercised in excess)even if it was never fired.. 95%= The gun has been fired, but all the original bluing/ finish is intact, some 'greying' (where the bluing has experienced slight wear like at the barrel tip from being inserted or withdrawn from a zip up gun soft case) is acceptable. The stock and forend, other than a few minor scratches, as well as the finish on them are intact. The mechanisms (trigger, bolt, ect) are tight and true.. 90%= Bluing on the receiver shows minor wear, the stock forend shows some finish wear with some nicks/scratches. The mechanisms (trigger, bolt, ect) are tight and true.. 80%= Bluing on the underside of the receiver shows lots of wear, 60%, even though the barrel may grade at 95%; numerous nicks and scratches in both the receiver as well as stock/ forend are the indicators that show that this grade of gun has been used in the feild for a number of seasons.. I have a 742 (A) made between 1975 and 1978 that was upgraded at the factory to a BDL, minus cheek clearance so it's a bit of a one off. It is a 100% grade though, unfired, just like it came out of the box. Currently, it's estimated value is between $500 and $600. If you have a bicentennial model (1976) even fired, it's worth $1k + even if it's @ 95% grade. with boxes, documentation ect. . You should keep in mind that the 742 was superseded by the 7400 around 1980. . I keep mentioning paperwork and original containers. Without these, your unfired gun is reduced to the unfired value of $500-to $600. Provenance is valued.. Dealers are asking $500 for a used 742A in 95% grade, or condition. Doesn't mean that's what they're getting. Go to gunbroker.com and do a search- You'll find 742s in a price range from $100 (less than 80% grade) to $350 (95% condition with a cheap scope mounted).. Remember, once the guns's out of the factory and has been fired, the best condition it will ever see is 95%, unless it's older than 100 years old, then everything changes.. 742s are just getting old enough to be considered collectible.. Also keep in mind that if you have the original carton/ container the gun came with in good to excellent condition most collectors will pay a premium above and beyond the estimated value of the gun itself, since it is considered part of what makes the gun 'collectible' in the first place. This also applies to warranty cards, manuals ect.. Most 742 owners probably don't know that their guns were shipped by Remington in a shipping carton to their respective dealers, such as kmart, SS Kresges and other retailers. Most of these retailers upon receiving a shipment of 742s at the point of sale would discard the shipping carton, since they usually had a gun rack to hold the gun on display.. Finally, what model? Remington made a 742(A), 742ADL (fine checkering w/sling swivels)742BDL (deluxe), 742 carbine, 3 grades of peerless and premier ($1800+ value now) and even a Canadian centennial model (still $350 like the 742(A)).. Since the grand majority of 742s made were of the (A) variety, at 95% condition, without scope, $300; @ 90%, around $275.. Hope this answers your question.. -Ric (MORE)
Recently, in my area, where the seller is voluntarily selling and the buyer is voluntarily buying ... and etc. Rifles with long actions bring around $500 in excellent condition. Short actions bring slightly less (less popular). Carbines bring slightly more. Older rifles and carbines bring slightly m…ore. The only time we can arrive at a true value is when the buyer and the seller agree on a price! SO, if you are a seller, or want to be a buyer, send me a message, we might be able to determine a value. firstname.lastname@example.org Steve (MORE)
They are very rare. Yet, I have two, and others are willing to sell. Try www.gunbroker.com and www.gunsamerica.com. They always have several for sale.
Don't shoot "Accelerator" ammunition (saboted rounds) in it. The pressure curve is wrong and it breaks the extractor.
Check on ebay. You will find plenty of synthetic options and occasionly some wood sets. Most 7400 forearms and stocks will fit 742 models.
There is a small level protruding from the bottom at the side of the magazine. Push that level back (or forward, I forget which) and the magazine comes straght out the bottom.
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)

There are date codes stamped on the barrel. If you go to the Remington Society of America's page here it has a picture of where their location is and how to interpret the letters. http://remingtonsociety.com/rsa/questions/barrelcodes
How old is it? Barrel length? How much of the finish is present? What condition is the stock in? Broad range 200-400
Condition is EVERYTHING with 742's. Have you tried checking sites (like AR15.com, Gunbroker, or AuctionArms) to find one similar to yours?. Condition:. Today (5/09/2009) one in 100% condition (ie: unfired with NO dings, scratches, rust, or blemishes) should bring at least $820, but VERY few are 10…0%,.. even from the factory.. 99% - (like new, no noticeable wear; the original box helps) / $650. 98% - (essentially perfect condition. NO rust, dings, or dents in the wood) / $590. 97% - (fired less than a hundred rounds or so, but has been cleaned & kept in excellent condition; looks like new. No dents, rust, etc.) / $510. 95% - (Excellent 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)
what is the value of a good condition .243 reminton model 7400 with a VX 1 2.5 x 7 leopold scope.
the value is anywhere from $500 to $700. i own one and i wouldn't trade it for anything
That's probably a first year production 1960, buy you can verify that and get the month as well by looking at the date stamp the location of which and the codes can be found here: http://remingtonsociety.com/rsa/questions/barrelcodes
The lowest would be $399. but a gun in good shape with a decent scope could range upwards of $700.
Depends on condition that is key, from $200 to $800 NEW IN BOX w/ accessories.
Depends on the caliber its in, but anywhere from $150 to $300 depending on caliber and condition. (Chnchila)
Go to: http://www.remington.com/products/archived/centerfire/autoloading/model-742-woodsmaster.aspx look up the serial block number on the firearm compared to what the dates are on the link. Its not exact but it gives you a approximate time
If the owner's manula doesn't tell you, you should seek the services of a gun smith.
There is no model number 3006 or 243 in the Woodmaster line. Check Remington's webiste under the Sportsman's Library.
Depends on condition, condition, and condition... From $350 to $1,000 for like new in the box.
whe WesternField m782 is a scaled down version of the mossberg 800 thus making it werth less than its big brother. if your piece is excellent you couldent get hurt as long as you dont invest more than $225
You can request a owner's manual for fee at the Remington web site. A local gun smith could also help.
Loosen the forend screw and remove the forearm. Clean & lightly oil the operating slide, spring & gas piston. Push out the two trigger-guard pins and pull the trigger group out of the receiver. Clean & oil the trigger group & internal parts of the receiver. (DO NOT snap the hammer with the trigger… group out of the gun.) Further stripping (removing bolt, etc.) is not possible on this rifle without gunsmith tools & knowledge. (MORE)
no exaxct price that ive seen but after reading a forum on Auction Arms.com it would be put in the Super Rare category if that gives you an idea of its value
In Gun Trader 2009 edition, the value is upwards of 787.00 in great condition. The bicentennial is more expensive than the regular 742 series because only a certain number was made.
That really depends on the condition. Take it to a gunsmith or appraiser or go to auctionarms.com to get an idea of what they are selling for.
They are date code stamped on the barrel on left side in front of receiver. A barrel location diagram and the date code table (month/year) is available on the Remington Society of America.
The rate of twist for a Remington 788 in .243cal is 1 in 9 which is one complete turn of the bullet in nine inches
Depending on the condition (stock, metal, etc.) and the sights it has, anywhere from $250 to $600. Most average condition ones are in the $300-$400 range.
10, 108 of these rifles were made in 1976 only. Value if in "AS NEW" condition would be around $450.00. If you have the original box and papers included, you could realize another $100.00 from a Remington collector.
Check the date code stamped on barrel (added a related link to site w/ details)
This all comes down to one thing......condition how well was the gun maintained. does it all any scratches in the stock? is the blueing wearing on it? also wood stock or synthetic stock? I will say for an average model 7600 in with wooden stock and slide. just a bare gun your going to be looking at …right around 275-325. with some add ons the price will be right around 375 (MORE)
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 .
If the barrel is the factory piece and no repopped. The 244 had a 1 in 12 twist until 1962 when it became commercialized as the 6mm Rem. Cal with a 1-9 twist that stableized the round in the model 700. Therefore, your rifle is of '61 vintage or a bit earlier. The age is not much help in the value un…less basically NEW IN THE BOX... As you have NOT stated the NRA condition of this rifle, it could be roughly valued at 200-325.00 in good condition, MINT in the box, the 244 caliber in the Model 722 is bringing 600-1100. Hope this helps... Semper Fi. 8541 US Marine 6-er. (MORE)
Check the date code stamp on barrel (see related link) by serial only a call to Remington can give you that answer.
Depends on condition. You might want to head over to the http://thegreatmodel8.net/ there's a lot of information and a forum there for collectors.
In poor condition it is worth as little as $800, in fair condition $3,000, like new $8,000, brand new in box $12,000
what the market will bear. Older autoloader are hard to sell. fear of non working or jamming is an issue. If you can show the rifle functions well it would be worth 100 to 300 depending on condition. Not a real collectible.
The Remington Model 742 was made from 1960 until 1980, and it was replaced by the Model 7400 in 1981.
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.
The current value of a remington model 600 in .243 winchester caliber is between 160 dollars for a rifle with 60%of its original finish remaining up to 475 dollars for a rifle with 100% original finish remaining.
These remington rifles are selling for between 225-400 dollars depending on the amount of original finish remaining on the rifle.
Most remington model 742 woodmasters are selling in the gun shops for between 275-350 dollars.
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)
Your rifle which was made by Mossberg and is there model 800B will bring between 100-275 dollars,depending on overall condition and a good bore.
A 6mm Remington should be perfectly adequate for deer hunting out to 250-300 yards. The 243 Winchester is a renowned as a great medium game cartridge with a 100 gr bullet at 2950 fps. Compare that to the 100 gr projectile in the 6mm Rem traveling at 3100 fps.
The Remington model 740 was the first semi-auto rifle chambered in 30-06,and was made from 1955-1959.The Remington model 742 was the next design and made from 1960-1980.I believe that the difference might be the gas piston,and the way the bolt locked up in the chamber(more bolt lugs).
