Re: Remington Model 7400 trouble's
It is normal operation here to have to repair (detail clean, most times) several 742s or 7400s before deer season. I am sometimes amazed how long some of these guns will run until they get so fouled they fail to work properly. The 742s are in here more because the 7400 did away with a lot of the 742s failings. Be that as it may, most of these guns never get the cleaning attention they need because you have to take out the bbl to remove the bolt and give it a detail clean. I tell folks that unless you use it all the time during the year, a detail clean will only be needed about every 3 or 4 yrs. It's kinda like maintaining your car; it is normally considered bad form to wait till your car locks up before you change oil.....ha. (no offense intended). The gas system aint bad except when you take out the tube and recoil spring then have to put them back. For folks that have never done it, you can't imagine how many different directions that stinkin thing can swarm on you trying to put it back in place and install the tube at the same time.If anyone reading this has a sure fire simple method to do this operation, I sure would be oblidged to hear it.
PS: you also have to take the bbl and action arm to replace the dust cover.
