A lot of guys I know here in New Yorkistan have 760/7600 rifles and carbines. Most tend to steer clear of the Remington semi auto's for reliability issues. On my way to my dealers I kept going back and forth between the new 750 Woodsmaster Carbine in 308 Win. or 30-06 Spr. and the 7600 Carbine in 30-06 Spr. I just couldn't take a chance with another semi auto Remington rifle. The 742 I had was a single shot/manual cocking rifle at best, there was nothing semi auto about it lol. I gave it away. As much as I wanted a new 750 Woodsmaster carbine, my last 7600 Carbine was perfect, I should have never sold it. So getting another 7600 was a no brainer in my opinion.
