Why Remington Woodsmaster 30-06 jamming?
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.

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, c…heckered 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.

What is the value of a Remington Woodsmaster 308 semi-automatic serial 3xxxxx in excellent condition?
Anywere from 6 to 7 hundred dollars depending on who you talk to. Some of the early one have an issue with scope mounting people have had to shim up the rear of there scope to bring in there shot i know this from experence and having to have work done on mine so it wouldent look like a hack job. All… in all that is a very nice gun great for hunting lots of different species of game. (MORE)
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.
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)
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.
I own one in 30-06 and paid 400 for it in 90-95% condition. They made a BDL version with checkering that made it look a little better. I personally wouldn't go higher than 450 for it in 30-06. They made this rifle in 300 H&H as well, this one is a lot less common. So would be worth more of course. I… would go as high as 600 for one of those. (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)

Which rifle??? Which model, so, you left too many variables to answer directly, however if you allow me to get on my soap=box, I can are refer to a magazine for the notorious Remington 597 in .17 cal,,,,, the answer is "they are junk"!!! The components are cheap, crudely made, ineffective, poorly …engineered and otherwise "junk". They have been assembled by monkeys (they could not find a football). . Thank you, now that that is out of my system, most magazines function properly unless they are bent or damaged. Notice i said "most".. try another magazine or two to determine if it is the fault of the magazine or the rifle. . Try disassembling the magazine and polishing the edges of the parts so they slide better.... seems like you could spend a long time attempting a cure before you throw it away and simply buy another magazine.

anywhere from 200 to 400 dollars depending on the condition of the bore, action, and the blueing.

Answer . 300 to 500 depending on condition and accessories. The rifle can be replaced for under $500
While the 30-06 has a larger calibre projectile then the 7mm (.284 calibre) the 7mm has a bigger case capacity. They are both fine cartridges, being available in many and varied factory loads and a lot reloading data is out there for both of them. The only advantage is what ever the 30-06 will do th…e 7mm rem mag will do faster, flatter and hitting harder. Both will take most north American game. I think the 30-06 is better I have one of my own an I've shot with a 7mm Remington magnum the difference with a 30-06 is that it is used to kill pretty much any North American game an some of African large game a 7mm Remington Magnum can kill stuff in Africa but it cant take down a big old Cape Buffalo or a Crocodile because a 30-06 ranges its bullet grain to over 220 grain while the 7mm Remington Magnum can only go up to 200 so that gives the 30-06 20 grains more killing power than the 7mm Remington Magnum.

My 7400 runs like a champ as long as it is kept clean and fed good ammo. (as it always should be!) Use that chamber brush that comes with the rifle!
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
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.

Contact Remington on their web site. Your question is impossible to answer without the caliber of the rifle

Yes they did, i have one sporterised. It is marked M1917 Remington on the top of the reciever.
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 .
5c + 15= 30 - 15 -15 5c = 15 If your solving for just c..... 5c/5 = 30/5 c= 3 Hope this helps adding further your question is incomplete you must ask for thevalue of C, since its a arithmetic equation.
Check the date code stamp on barrel (see related link) by serial only a call to Remington can give you that answer.
I would have no trouble saying yes to this question! There are capable of hunting almost everything in the united states except the great bears.I believe that the model 740,742,7400 has sold more than 2 million guns in the US since its introduction.
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.
\n. No older than 1906, when the cartridge was created. Without MUCH more information, we cannot answer.
A new 700 ADL can typically be had for about $400. That's just for the rifle, not with a scope. That's also with a composite stock and a plastic trigger guard. If you have an older one that is in new condition with a nice wood stock and metal parts, you may be able to get $400 for it.
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 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.
