Anybody got a 742 Woodsmaster 30-06 with the 22" barrel stuck back somewhere? Just needing a barrel, figured someone has one laying around with a busted bolt.

I found a place a few years back that done them for the 742 , 7600 , ect . Can't remember where now . Seem like I remember the barrels be about $250. I get a chance I'll see if I can find them again. I was looking for a savage bolt action at the time

You got a deer rifle to trade for one. I have one I haven't shot in 15 years.

Not really.....the quality of the firearms slowly did them in. At least now folks won't be tempted to buy new junk.

If you find a barrel, be sure to check the headspace with your bolt. It may or may not be in spec.

I'd try to find a barrel and bolt combo from the same gun if possible.

That makes the search much more difficult though

no doubt he changes the barrel a gun smith needs to do it . id have him check the chamber to see if it pitted too .

Definitley check the chamber. I've worked on a pile of those things and I think maybe 2 didn't have rust in the chambers.
Fortunately I was able to polish out all but 1 and get them back in service. The 1 was so bad it was sold for parts.

Yea they are pretty hit or miss of finding a decent parts (gun). Like an idiot kid, I cut mine off to 16.5" years ago and now wish I hadn't of.

Gundoc, if the headspace is a bit too deep couldn't you face off the reciever side of the attaching lug? If it is too shallow, a finishing reamer would clean it up, yes/no??
