Buck D. Law, SASS #62183

Are you superstitious?

Recommended Posts

I've always wanted a Remington 742 and today while browsing gunbroker, I found this gun. What do ya'll think? Is the fact that BDL is part of the model number a sign that Buck D. Law should buy it? :DRemington 742 BDL

 

Edit: Fixed the link :D

I am thinking your link is screwy. But you should definitely buy it. Soon it will become part of your soul and work only in your hands. Think Christine (the car)

My first deer rifle was a 742 30-06.I had to have it I was 13 and it stomped the H3ll out of me.Went to Co. saw my first buck shot the 5 shots at the deer killed it the first shot and keep pulling the trigger until it would not go bang any more.When I came back to Baytown ,My dad sold it. More shots less brains.They are nice guns.One of my sons has one.

If I were you yes I'd buy it without hesitation. But for me I'd pass. Couldn't explain it well enough to the misses on how BDL has anything to do with H.B. Now if the serial numbers had any that matched my birthday, fathers day, heck any numbers in it, well then I'd try my darndest to get her to buy my reasoning. Go for it.

742

 

I was born in July...the 7th month and I will be 42 in a few years.

 

Boy my wife better look out because that right there is good enough reasoning to me.

Uh O !!! I've been watching a couple of 742's there too!! Until I read some gun forum posts about all the problems the 742's had with jams! That's why Remington changed the design and acll them 7500's now! I am looking for a 30 cal long ramge Zombie rifle and can't afford the FALs or AR versions. May have to settle for a Bolt Action.

Hey now, I never even knew all these years that I had a Remington 700 Buck D Law left handed 30.06. I should bring it when next we meet for you to autograph for me!

Years ago, I went into a gunstore to buy a '94 Winchester. There, on the rack, was a '97 Shotgun with PC (as is Professor Cubby) inlaid in the stock. I bought it (of course) and have been using it regularly ever since.

 

It is a SIGN! Buy it Buck!

Coming from MINOCQUA, WI it has probably taken a lot of bucks. Speaking of bucks, what do you think you would dress out at?

Well, starting out at a bit over 200 and considering that the people who know me well say I'm full of.....well.....you know.....I'd say close to ten pounds. :D

I always wanted a 742 and I finally found one that was nice, and cheap enough ( $275). I was told not to shoot over 150 grain ammo in it as it would beat itself to pieces in a short time. That's for the 30-06 version, don't know about other calibers. Mine was made in 1962, same year I was born.

Don't forget the 7400.....they make it in a "Buck D Law" Model as well and they were SUPPOSED to have reworked the receiver to help the jamming issue. Mine never jammed but I keep it cleaned and took very good care of it so I don't know if that was the difference or not. Like RRR said though when you take it to the range don't expect those 1 MOA groups that you can get with a good bolt gun. You can get them pretty cheap too. Here's the first one I pulled up:
