Easiest way to get a quick idea of how much your gun is worth is get on www.gunbroker.com, its like the eBay of guns. Then obviously put in the model of rifle and find out what they are going for. A rifle as you talk about would probably be worth 700-1000 dollars in my opinion depending on how the c…ondition and finish is. (MORE)
What is the value of a Remington Woodsmaster Model 740 rifle with high-power scope and hard case all in very good condition?
Answer . \nAll depends on what kind of scope. Weaver doesnt bring as much as Leupold, for example. So, based on what little information you've provided, anywhere from $225 to $500.\n. \nwww.countrygunsmith.net
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 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 f…orearm 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. (MORE)
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)
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)
Priceless, I have killed over twenty deer with mine. It is one of the best shooting rifles I have found.
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 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)
A chart/pdf of the 1903/1903a serial codes is post on the Remington Society of America. http://remingtonsociety.com/rsa/questions/barrelcodes
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.
Not sure a serial list exists for this model but you can tell the month/year from the stamping. Details here: http://remingtonsociety.com/rsa/questions/barrelcodes
I just bought one for 250 in 99% condition, no scrathes or worn blue in 30-06.
My serial list for the model 11 ends in 1944 and it's lower 700's. It was only made until 1947 so a guess would be 46/47 but it also should be marked on the barrel if it's original. http://remingtonsociety.com/rsa/questions/barrelcodes
The date (month/year) can be determined by the barrel codes which can be looked up on the Remington Society of America here: http://remingtonsociety.com/rsa/questions/barrelcodes
the 740 is a very old model, they sell for $250- $350 in this area
Model 1917? Are you reading a patent date or something? But for any model made after 1920 the month and year can be determined by the barrel code, all the details can be found on the Remington Society of America here: http://remingtonsociety.com/rsa/questions/barrelcodes
check the date code stamped on the barrel. Remington Society of America, Manufactured Date link has the details.
Just ahead of the receiver, on the left side, there will be a 2-letter assembly date code stamped on the barrel, just above the wood, that will indicate the month/year that the rifle was assembled. The 725s were made from 1958 thru 1961/62, not sure exactly what date the 700 superceeded the 725, but… the the code will be some combination of the following: Month: 01 - B 02 - L 03 - A 04 - C 05 - K 06 - P 07 - O 08 - W 09 - D 10 - E 11 - R 12 - X Year: 1958 - E 1958 - F 1960 - G 1961 - H 1962 - J (MORE)

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)

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.
1927, check the date code stamp on the barrel for month/year to be sure. Details on the Remington Society of America, see related links.
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.
