Default Woodsmaster 742

So I have a woodsmaster 742 that jams on the first shot, every single time. I've done all I can and she is just beyond my knowledge and skill level (at this point) to fix. Anyone know someone that fixes them or any kits, etc?

Call Remington and ask them.Mine went back on recall 10 years ago. They replaced it with a 7400.Time runs together may have been 15 years.

Thanks, I'll give that a try. I inherited the gun and always liked it growing up so it would be fun to have again.

Well, Remington just gave me a list of gunsmiths that could help. I might try calling again to see if a different person can give different results. Hate to pay hundreds for a rifle worth less than I'll be putting into it and the possibility of still not working properly.

I know people who still shoot their 742's and like, them but if they blow up in their face they have no recourse. I also no of some that have come undone . I only fire factory rounds in my 740.

(extractor hang up). Where as the bolt is riding to far back in recoil and ejection of the fired round and creating grooves in the housing from the locking lugs and to the point as to sticking in that spot.
