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!
joyteachem: What is with all they yak yak yak yak leading up to the POINT? LOL
Drives me crazy how many folks do it!
Scaaty Lobo: Sorry but this is too sad to watch,say ACTUALLY one more time and my head
would explode = ACTUALLY./
Smithy Leatherman: Good video. Disassembling requires a lengthy video instruction. Thank
Yaboi2handz R33s3: 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
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
John Smith: Need to clean up that workspace, wtf.
nodakmex: Wish I could say something nice about this vid. What a dipcrap
Billy Bob: I've got a 742 carbine in 30-06 made in 1980
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
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
Jeff Sullivan: Thanks, very helpful
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
BenPage74: Thank You. This video helped me get my 742 apart for Cerakoting.
shredder183: good vid thanks
MrGSF77: Very informative. My dad gave me this rifle a few years before he died. I
can remember hunting with it around the mid to early seventies. Thanks.
charli0072003: Does it keeps zero when you removed the barrel?! Regards from Spain
shredder183: hey man no problem i understand how that is mabe i can get mine up mine is
the 7400 30-06 loveley gun man
Chris090883: @Jim Madison That rifle has been in my family for years. I love it. She
don't kick to much but has a lovely bark. I honestly think my Remington 770
in 308 kicks harder then my 742 in 30-06. I know the feeling about not
being able to shoot big bores. I went 6 month because of a car accident
without picking up anything larger then my AR. Once I was able to hold it
steady man that sound was lovely. When this weather warms up ill be doing a
few videos with the big bore stuff at the range
corey raschke: i have owned a Remington model 742 for the last thirty some years since
1975 infact in my life i have owned two, i have knowtist that the gun shows
less sign of breakage if you use smaller grain rounds, i use 150 grain
remington rounds and i have never once had the weapon break, and by simply
cleaning and well taking care of it it has never jammed on me as well, i
love this gun you should be proud to own one thanks for the video pale.
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?
Chris090883: No I haven't had to. The extractor was removed in this video when I took
down the bolt
Chris090883: No problem, glad I was able to help. I'm about the only one who has done a
full video like this where you can see what to do, and also give people a
tip or trick or two as well.
huntmasterism: Have you ever replaced the extractor in these rifles and if you have can
you do a video on it.
Chris090883: No problem man, glad I could help you out.
Chris090883: @snickers76a Most modern 30-06 ammunition like Winchester Ballistictip or
S&B ammunition is Boat Tails unless marked Soft Point. There is Match
ammunition and heavier grain that is only made for Single Shot or Bolt
Action. They are heavier and longer so it won't load into the 742. Most of
the ammunition I showed in the video was also 30 years old or so. But it
all depends on the grain bullets you use
snickers76a: Can you explain to me why you say that boat tail ammo is strictly single
shot bolt action. Not sayin you dont know what youre talking about cause I
learned everything I needed to stip and put mine back together but I have
used nothing but boat tails in mine. Thanks and great video by the way
m unterschutz: Just want to say thanks for the video. After having my 742 apart for a year
(for repairs), this really helped me put it together without fuss. Thanks!
Jim Madison: Great video man. I have had a 742 for about 7 years and never been able to
figure out how to strip it down. I was just cleaning my 872 wingmaster and
figured I would take a look on the 742 while on Remington’s. On thing as a
comment though. I do use boat tail rounds shooting paper with mine and have
never had an issue with them. For hunting I use soft tips but I am curious
about the silver tips. They sound like a sweet round. Sadly I can’t use my
742 hunting any more my shoulders are shot.
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!
Chris090883: I will be doing on of those videos within a month, just been really crazy
with work and now stuff with my car. It's just been one battle after
another. But I was planning on doing one within that time frame.
Scott K: He Actually could have saved 10 minutes by not using the word :Actually"
several times in each sentence.
shredder183: do you have any more u can put up of this gun a shooting vid would be nice
not make out there on this gun
Katancic M: what ammunition are you useing for 742? which manufacturer is the best for
use so the bullet is not stuck??
