742 single shot

A few years ago I bought a Remington 742 through an ad, sight unseen, but for $100, I figured I'd take the chance. When I got it, there was evidence of hard use. When I took it to the range, I found that I had bought a single shot as the action would not function. I tried it several times but it still wouldn't cycle. If memory serves, I almost had to kick the action open to get the case out.
I've had the gun to two different gunsmiths and the only thing that changed was my thinner wallet.
Any ideas/fixes, or should I just use it as a parts gun (I have two other 742s that function very well)? The gun is sitting in my safe doing absolutely nothing and it galls me.
