I've had several over the years. My first one was given to me by my dad back in the early 1960's. I still have it. The 742 is based on the Model 11-48 28 gauge shotgun action. It's aluminum and is subject to wear quickly. These rifles are a known problem child with jams. My original at one time would shoot under an inch at 100 yds. But something changed and the same box of ammo will hardly get in a pie plate at 100 yds. I've changed mounts, scopes, even open sights and it's no better. I'll never unload the one I have but I'd avoid giving any money for one. There are a lot better firearms out there to spend yer hard earned bucks on.
