I to bought a used 742 woodsmaster in. 30-06 first thing I did was scrub the dog snot out of it and made sure the bore was mirror like before I quit. The gun shoots 1-1 1/2" groups at 100 yards. It might be a fluke gun also and im shooting hand loads but I know of two other woodsmasters that have taken deer via head shots out to 100 yards and under.
Buy'em for fun and love of guns not status symbols.
