Remington 760 .243 “semi Auto”

Post by Kikilee » Sat May 11, 2019 6:58 pm

I inherited a couple of my uncle guns and one of them has me perplexed.
It is marked on the receiver as a 760 Gamemaster but it’s a semi auto.
I can’t find anything online that references a 760 in a semi auto.
Everything I find says the 760 was only made in a pump action.
Any advise or info to help me figure this out would be greatly appreciated.Image

What a strange answer from Remington. There is zero way a 760 receiver can be used to build an auto-loading 742. Not enuff machining for that to be able to happen. What happened is the receiver was roll-marked incorrectly as a 760. I would have liked to seen the box saved for said rifle. That would have told the real story.
