What causes the action on a Remington 742 to jam?

It sounds like you have a Remington 742, commonly called the Remington JamOMatic. Part of the problem with the 742 is the receiver wears, which causes the action to jam up. And unfortunately, Remington realized the problem and offered a trade-in on a newer model, but that deal is long gone.

Why does my Remington 7400 keep jamming?

If it is factory loads that are the problem it could be that the gun needs a thorough cleaning after a complete tear down with emphasis on the locking area of the barrel and the internal area of the chamber. In fact, if I cleaned it and it still did it then I’d take it to a gunsmith and have him completely tear the gun down, clean and inspect it.

What to do if your Remington 750 jams?
