Our Assessment: From “Remington’s Model 8 auto-loading rifle was becoming expensive to make, so in 1933 Remington’s new president Charles Krum decided they needed a new rifle. The result was the Model 740 which didn’t get released until 1955 because of problems, and apparently there were some they didn’t know they had. By 1958 Remington was working on fixing the various weaknesses. The Model 742 came out in 1960, improving the cartridge ejecting system, adding a latch to the bolt to prevent bolt rotation when unlocked, improving the accuracy by adding a double pitch screw to provide the proper fore-end clearance, and changing the magazine feed lips to improve cartridge feeding, among others. The 742 had two grades to start: “A” which had a plain uncheckered buttstock, and “ADL” which featured checkering, a grip cap and roll engraved game scenes on the receiver. Later, these two grades were combined into one basic grade, with the engraving deleted, and the “BDL” added which included a Monte Carlo buttstock and basket weave pressed checkering. This rifle is a Model 742ADL in .30-06 Springfield commemorating Remington’s 150th Anniversary. The rifle is in Fine condition, but obviously wasn’t stored properly and has slight water damage to the stock and metal. Still, this rifle, in its original factory box, should have interest to the Remington collectors out there, not to mention hunters who appreciate the .30-06.
