Default Remington 7400 30-06

I bought this semi-auto rifle as a poor man's M1 Garand. I also bought some 10 round mags, what you guys think

I have the carbine 7400 and a 742 rifle. The 7400 is an upgraded version, but still not a Garand. The triple k 10 rounders seem to work ok. The clear plastic eagle mags work well. I encourage folks to contact the manufacturer and request they produce them again. I would buy 10 or 20.

Back to the original question, the rifle will not stand up to a lot of shooting. They can be quite acceptable in accuracy. Mine will shoot 2 Moa or better

It does but only after many many rounds. The 7400 is a fine rifle and I bet you will be happy with it.

The early versions (740, 742) had problems with excessive wear in the receiver from high round count shooting. The 7400 is a much improved version without nearly the problems of the earlier ones. I would not hesitate shooting a few hundred rounds a year through my 7400. I would not be inclined to shoot a thousand rounds a year through it. Ammo is just too expensive and recoil is too high for that kind of shooting.

WTS, the 7400 is NOT a Garand. It is much more accurate than an off the rack Garand. You would need a very good Garand to shoot as accurately. My 7400 is a 2 minute rifle. I have not shot a Garand that is better than 4.

1) It's a bit cumbersome unless your truck's a Kenworth. And, 2) Depending where you're at, a 30-06 is a little over the top for SD

Took the REMINGTON 7400 shooting, couldn't get the factory mag or the 3 aftermarket 10 round mags to work, i had to load one round at a time to shoot it, didn't buy this semi-auto to shoot it having to feeding it 1 round at a time

Hmm. My 7400 carbine has been very reliable with the factory mags, Eagle 10 rounders and Triple K 10 rounders.
