Yea they have the unfortunate nickname of "Jam Master". Funny I haven't heard the same thing about the Brownings.Doug Bowser said:I think the Remington Semi-auto rifles are throw away rifles. I have repaired several of the older models and I am not impressed with them. I prefer a Mauser style bolt action rifle with non-rotary extractor. Usually the extractor is the problem. A thin piece of sheet metal. If I could not sell it, I would not take one as a gift.
Another warning. I would not use bullets heavier than the 150 in a .30-06 Remington semi-auto rifle. It puts a strain on the bolt and extractor. I have seen 742 rifles that have had the bolt beaten to pieces by using heavier bullets.
