While you’ll have a few people who’ll sing the 742’s praises, I’m not one of them. I have owned and shot many, many rifles over many, many years and the worst one has been the Remington 742. The ones I’ve owned, or shot, were finicky about ammo, jam-o-matics, not accurate, the stock wasn’t wide enough for a paddle and they ain’t heavy enough for an anchor. Used for a tomato stake, maybe OK. Pure junk in my opinion.
