According to "The Blue Book of Gun Values", 19th addition the Remington Woosmaster 742 was produced between 1960 and 1980. Calibers produced were 6mm Rem., .243 Rem., .280 Rem. (marked 7mm Express 1979-1980), .30-06, or .308 Win. cal., 22 in. barrel, open sights, 4 shot box magazine, gas operated, checkered pistol grip stock. Mfg. 1960-1980. Condition & value. 100% 98% 95% 90% 80% 70% 60% $325 $290 $275 $250 $235 $$210 $185 These prices are from the 2004 edition of "The Blue Book of Gun Values"
The year of manufacturer is a little tricky as Remington used code letters for the year and numbers for the month. Starting in 1921, M was used for the year. The letters O,Q & V were not used and ended with Z in 1931. In 1932 Remington started using the alphabet over again starting with the letter A. The letter I was ommited and L was the last letter used in 1942. IN 1943 mm was used and went thru 1953 with ZZ. OO, QQ VV were omitted. In 1954 A was the starting point for reuse of the alphabet and went thru Z in 1975. I, O, Q,& V were not used again. In 1976 I was used. In 1977 O was used. In 1978 Q was used. In 1979 V was used. In 1980 Remington started over with the alhabet. The month of manufacturer code coresponds to the numeral underneath the letters in Blackpowderx. B L A C K P O W D E R X 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
With the reuse of the alphabet it can be a little cofusing determining the year of manufacturer. I was unable to locate any information pertaining to sequential numbers after Remingtons use of their coding system as to haw may guns were made each year. I am still looking for this information.
