Did this video help you?

nodakmex: Wish I could say something nice about this vid. What a dipcrap

Scaaty Lobo: Sorry but this is too sad to watch,say ACTUALLY one more time and my head would explode = ACTUALLY./

KSI AAron IsYaBoi: I think the the model 742 and is a good deer rifle but, the disassembly of that gun is too much to keep up with.

T Ad: Those bullets are not called boat tails, they are spire points, or just full metal jacketed spire points. boat tail refers to the back end of the bullet.

swhite10539: Chris, I just got a Remi 742 and disassembled the entire gun including the bolt. It is tricky to watch out for the latch and that bolt latch spring plunger.  However, what spring is associated with the firing pin?  You made mention of it being inside the Breech Bolt but nothing came out?  I ask because when I was cleaning mine, there was a chunk of spring on the firing pin.  The firing pin seems to move freely back and forth.  Should the pin be under some tension when the bolt is disassembled.  The nearest I can figure out is that maybe this was the Firing Pin Retractor Spring according to schematics I have looked at.  Can you advise...otherwise you video got me thru the full disassembly with few issues.  Thanks!

Eric Pikey: Thanks for the great video.  I just used it to take my 742 apart.  It was very dirty inside.  Trouble is though, that plastic piece, believe it's called the ejector port cover wasn't there.  Is it possible some models don't have it?  Or more likely the previous owner didn't reassemble it properly?  Thanks!

joyteachem: What is with all they yak yak yak yak leading up to the POINT?    LOL  Drives me crazy how many folks do it! 

Robert Payne: Hey Chris I'm working on a model 742 30/06 for a friend it's very dirty and in need of some TLC your video is awesome, but I'm stuck at the main nut at the end of the bolt carrier, it's froze up pretty good I've been soaking it in penetrating oil hoping it would free up, do you have any other suggestions?

John Smith: Need to clean up that workspace, wtf.

Jeff Sullivan: Thanks, very helpful

ywjpheej01: What's the metal on the forearm base where the top screw go into call? I lost mine and want to get a replacement. Please let me know. Thank you

Billy Bob: I've got a 742 carbine in 30-06 made in 1980

Armedlegally: Hey Chris, Thanks for doing this video I've had my dads 30-06 740 for almost a year now finally torn it down and gave a it a good cleaning.  Thanks to your video I was able to get it all apart clean up and the action is so much more smooth now.  Thanks again for putting this video out there!

Mike S: Great Video, My father in-law just handed down this rifle to me. My first Rifle! I am looking forward to taking this rifle apart & giving it a good cleaning "with the help of your video of course" before I take it to the range.


charli0072003: Does it keeps zero when you removed the barrel?! Regards from Spain

Chris090883: No I haven't had to. The extractor was removed in this video when I took down the bolt

huntmasterism: Have you ever replaced the extractor in these rifles and if you have can you do a video on it.

Mark Haynes: I have owned and shot a 742 bdl since 1966. I have fired thousands of rounds of reloads, and hundreds of rounds of military surplus ammo. Some of the military ammo was pre-date stamp. I think that I had one box of round nose ammunition, which I never shot all of them. Spire points always worked well. I have fired it, when I was younger and dumber, until the barrel was hot enough to sear the skin off my finger tips. I screwed the chamber, but that was my bad!

Scott K: He Actually could have saved 10 minutes by not using the word :Actually" several times in each sentence.

groove508: Is there two springs under the bolt latch or one? In the schematic it shows two pins but only one spring. And what goes in first, the spring or the pin?
