My local gun shop has a few 742's in 30-06 and I thought I might need one. But after a little research online, it seems that these things had some serious accuracy and reliability issues. Crazy stuff like recievers wearing out and not holding zero. I don't want to buy a pos. I know this gun has been around a long time, and became more refined with the 7400. All the 742's he has are obviously used, but a couple are real nice and I thought I could get into a semi auto 30-06 for about a grand less than an M1. Just for casual shooting and the rare hog hunt, not combat or anything. Anybody got anything to contribute?
