This Remington 742 is in fair condition, with signs of wear on either side of the rifle. The gas operation of the Woodsmaster will help lower the felt recoil of .30-06. This rifle has made a name for itself for being a reliable standby for generations of hunters. This rifle has sling swivels making it easy to attach a sling and it is drilled and tapped to allow for a scope base. This rifle would be perfect for a reliable hunting rifle with less recoil of a traditional 30-06.
