The Remington Model 742, also known as the Woodsmaster is a semi-automatic rifle that was produced by Remington Arms from 1960 until 1980. It uses a straight 4 round magazine, a 10-round magazine, and a rare 20 round magazine. Features include a side ejection port and a free-floating barrel. It uses the same action as the Remington 1100 series shotguns with both having the venerable 870 series as the parent gun. In 1981, the Model 742 was replaced by the Model 7400.
A 742 chambered in 30-06 was used by the sniper in the Action-Thriller Two-Minute Warning.
