Bedrock, you just described my 740A, to a "T" - right down to the year model.Bedrock said:Swany: I am not sure if all 740A's are the same configuration as mine. Mine is a 30-30 made in 1967. It has a full length magazine, carbine-style front sight, oiled walnut stocks, a relatively slim forend with a forend cap, sling swivels, and a red recoil pad. The fit and finish are excellent. The walnut is not fancy, but is a good grade.
Was pulling the 22 I am going to swap it for from the safe, and in the process, moved the 35 Rem around. I guarantee that the 740 has a nicer set of wood on it than the 336! Really buying it for a cheap lever plinker and to play with cast bullets in it! Would love to cast and dump them out to 200 (+?) yards. I love the kentucky elevation process! Huge upside is that I can get factory ammo CHEAP, and get the brass, AND dump a deer or hog, etc, any day.Bedrock said:oscar: Nice find. All the ones I have been able to examine have been finished very nicely. There is nothing cheapened about them at all. A friend has one made in 1977, and it has the fanciest wood I have seen on any standard 336 or store brand. Enjoy yours in good health.
