I don't know of a 750 model. There is a Remington 740 Woodmaster deer rifle. Also a 742 model. Is the 750 a newer model?

Me either.. I have a 742 and to my knowledge, they changed that to the 7400 a few years back.

Bear would it by chance look like this? If so it is a model 740. They should run around $300 in good shape.

Naw, the 750 is a new model, same old thing, renamed and reworked to feed better. You really gotta wonder how long Remington will try to milk that dead horse.:bangin:

Yea mailman I know that rifle as a 742. I have two of them. Looks like Rem is circling their wagons and heading back toward the 742 series(I hope). Guys that didn't like to keep the 7400's clean gave them a bad rap. I thought the 740 was a pump?

740 was pump, 742 was auto. far as I know.

I dont like an auto-highpower rifle for way too many reasons to list.

I can't speak for all of them. The two I am most familiar with I have had since the early 70's and have both functioned flawlessely even with different sizes of homemade ammo. I do know os some that didn't like the real big ammo(around 180 or 200 gr) but I could never see a need for that kind of round in a deer rifle anyhow,

PV, you must be the luckiest guy with them I know of. I know of nine in my immediate family or really close friends, and only ONE of the things, works right! One wouldn't work, straight out of the box, brand new (three trips to the warranty place didn't get it working, either!!) One of my cousins had one in .308, it blew out the barrel under the rear sight, where it was D&Ted for the sight to screw into the barrel, and the others just wouldn't work right. Some took awhile to screw up, some didn't, some were cleaned appropriately, some weren't, but all of 'em were a headache, except Nephew #1's .270, it hasn't gagged yet. Maybe this year? Hey, I never said my family was smart!:D

Thats been my experience too Glenn

I was peeved to say the lest when I noticed that the scope base was loose due to the uncontrolllable shock from the auto-action. Bought a bolt rem700 the next week.

I'll have to admit that I know of one that didn't work. However it was doing good until the guy drove his truck over it. He brought it to me to replace the dust cover. Replaced it and it wouldn't function. Removed it and there was enough clearance for it to operate. He still uses it that way. Guess he was lucky too.

Yes, it is a new model called the 750 woodmaster. It has a redesigned gas system,bolt,stock and sling studs,plus a rubber non slip recoil pad. The msrp is 712.00 but I'm sure you could get for lesss. If anyone finds one forsale, I will go get it.

The long-running Model 7400 semi-auto is being replaced by the Woodsmaster 750. The 750 has improved ammo-feed reliability.
