The Standard Remington Model 742 in .30-06 (the model you asked about) is valued at;
Exc. Cond: $350.00 USD
V.G. Cond: $275.00 USD
Good Cond: $250.00 USD

* Add 10% for the 18" barrel in .30-06 caliber

The previous post kind of got you off topic.

Hope this helps you out,
kcbuck

Hello,
As usual I have to agree 100% with KCBuck. The prices & conditions he gave you are spot on. I have one of the ole' Remingtons. A 1961 in fact and since then it's only been fired 11 times. Even still there is a reason they have a nickname "The Jam Master", or they would have a much better resale. Can't go wrong when KC gives you the info! Great guy and smart one too!!

How do you know if it's the Canadian Gold or not? Which one is worth more?

Hi Tbuto - not sure you realized it when you posted, but this thread is over 4 years old with many responses over 2 years old.

In todays market a basic grade model 742, if in good to excellent condition is about $350-$450. If excellent plus to like new condition a bit more.

Even if only in fair condition, as long as there are no major metal or stock issues, value would still be north of around $250-$300.

Regards,

Rob

ardetroy75 - the very first thing I recommend to try and fix the jamming issue is to do a thorough cleaning, specially of the inside of the chamber. Some folks neglect their chambers and bores on these rifles and I have seen more than a few with rusted or putted chambers.

Also be sure to closely inspect both the extractor and ejector. And ensure the gun is lubed within specs (very lightly - with no oil in chamber) when you are done.

After a complete thorough cleaning try a different magazine. Conventional wisdom dictates that most semi auto firearms ailments can be cured either by a good cleaning or replacing the magazine.

742's are no more finicky than any other semi auto rifle I have ever owned. However I do not like that one can not clean the bore from the breach end without a flexible wire type cleaning rod. Your rifle bore can be cleaned from the muzzle. But if you do that I recommend using a bore (crown) guard or going VERY carefully.

Regards,

Rob

The 742 also doesn't seem to like newer hunting rounds if the cleaning and new mag doesn't fix the issue try soft tip ammo

Hello deerhunt78,

.243 Win chambered model 742's are not that common. However I do not know what, if any, premium there is for one. My best guess is about 10-20% over what I previously posted.

Regards,

Rob

On your 742 jamming it's most likely the chamber I just took one down to a master gunsmith he takes them apart cleans everything checks clogged or rusty ports. The main problem is the chamber takes barrel off the gun and polishes it up real smooth so shell slides out smooth. The jamming is caused by shells sticking in chamber. My gunsmith just charges 65 bucks. Don't go buy a new magazine don't think it's the issue.

Just got it back shoots like a charm. Put about 15 rounds through it no jams.
