Ha! Looks like you and are both finding nice 742s to play with. I bought this one online about two weeks ago and installed an old Weaver K4 using Weaver rings I must have bought at a gun show 30 years ago. The rifle, manufactured in 1966, is in excellent condition. It too is a 30-06. These pics were taken by the seller and accurately depict the condition of the rifle. I don't know when I will find time to shoot it. My wife has a Remington 750 in 35 Whelen. It is a swell rifle.
Congrats on your new 742!!!!
