Remington Model 742

I have the chance to buy a Remington model 742 Woodsmaster semi-auto from a co-worker. it is a 1969 and is in good condition. It also has a Weaver scope. I have bought a few guns from him in the past and we try to keep it fair. I don't want to rip him off and he wants me to have it rather than sell it to somebody he doesn't know.

My question is does anyone know anything about the value of this gun? We looked at an auction and figured $200.00 is a fair price for both of us.

Does that sound about right?

Thanks in advance.

That's a great price. $300-$350 is the going rate.

A fantastic price. I sold one 10 years ago w/o a scope for 400 or 450.

What caliber?

I was reading some reviews and a good many say they jam pretty easy. Have you had that experience?

Thanks for the feedback guys!

I cannot remember mine ever jamming. I cannot say one bad thing about the rifle.

Once the receiver rails get chewed up they start to jam. They chew through the rails after about 500 rounds.

Your talking about the same 742 many law enforcement agencies including the FBI used for years?

I am sure they got more than 500 rounds of them before the had issues.
