Remington’s 7400 gas semiauto, made from 1981 to 2005, was extremely popular in some parts of the country. Chambered in all the usual short and standard cartridges, plus .35 Whelan, it replaced the 742, which was sold from 1960 to 1980, and had replaced the 740 that had been around since 1952. The 7400 was replaced by the 750, which lasted until 2015. The line is dead now—its niche having been filled by the AR-style R10, which makes up for in reliability what it gives away to the older semiautos in looks. The consensus on the 7400 is that they can be finicky, and they have to be kept very clean, but the 7400 has shot a lot of deer over the years, including today’s rifle. Jake, the owner, gets bonus points for his excellent throwback choice of optic and low rings.
