This Remington 742 is in good to fair condition, with some surface rust on the either side of the rifle. The gas operation of the Woodsmaster will help lower the felt recoil of .30-06. This 742 has a Bushnell Sportview with low rings. The checkering gives the shooter a positive grip on the stock in good and poor weather conditions. Over all this rifle would make for a perfect deer gun being an accurate semi auto with plenty of power and not too much recoil.
