the 740 is a very old model, they sell for $250- $350 in this area
Impossible to answer without the sn or date codes.
Check the date code stamp on barrel (see related link) by serial only a call to Remington can give you that answer.
$300 without a scope in 95% condition!!
There have never been any recalls on the Remington Model 742 that I'm aware of. The Remington 742 is now an obsolete model and was replaced with the Remington Model 7400. The bolt received an upgraded design along with the magazine catch/release. At one time Remington was offering a Model 7400 as a replacement for the Model 742, if you sent them your Model 742 along with $350.00. Is there a problem with the 742 that you have?
Check barrel code on Remington Society of America: http://remingtonsociety.com/rsa/questions/barrelcodes
At store in Northwest Ct. I saw some ranging in price from $150-$250, depending on condition.
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.
Not marked, Model 9
If it's not marked it's a model 12 made in 1914.
The Model 81's are all date code stamped, go to the Remington Society of America there is a diagram (click it) and a table which explains the codes (month/year)
Only if it is marked ".223 Remington" on the barrel.
Woodmaster is the model. Grade are ADL, BDL.
Assuming it is the Model 81 Woodsmaster, excellent condition examples in .35 Rem are bringing more than $400. firstname.lastname@example.org
Early rolling blocks and the years of the model 12 "pump" were not marked, need a good description to identify.
Made 1931 - 1949 will be barrel code marked, see related links for information on the Remington Society of America.
Is the model # marked? is it an auto, pump, rolling block, ???
Depends on condition and what Model. AFAIK only the Model 740 was marked .244. Range 250-600.
It's a Model 12 made in the first days of 1915, they weren't marked then.
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.
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 months and years.
Is marked on side of action. If you do not see any action marks look at the barrel, it might be a 788.
It was made in 1918, so it won't be date code stamped and I also suspect not marked model 12 on the side.
