No compass for me.

In fact, that was an argument against spending the money to do this by some people. Sure, it did the job but.. it's the basic, entry level, plain jane, no frills model.

My mom chuckled quietly at that statement, and said that pretty much summed up her father in one sentence. I knew at that point, I was getting this gun back to it's glory regardless of the cost!

Both my girls have fired this gun at the range. Although it hasn't happened hunting, this gun has been shot by 4 generations at the range. Not many can say that.

P.S. I've also got my great grandma's (yeah... I said grandma) break action 12 gauge she used to hunt pheasant with. I'll be throwing some coin at that gun sometime this year I hope.

Try Bobs guns shop in VA, bobsguns.com, he's supplied me with obsolete mags and firing pins in the past.

Can't help you with parts, but I agree that finding one for parts can be had relatively cheap.

Yeah... I spent way, way more getting the gun shooting and looking good than it's "worth". I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

I'm the 3rd generation to hunt with mine. Was my grandpas. I never met him, but I'll never forget the smiles and tears from grandma the day I asked her if I could use it to hunt when I turned 12. 30th consecutive deer opener for me with it this year.

Besides a tear down cleaning (that stopped just short of reblueing), I had the wood stripped and redone with dents/dings removed, new scope and clip, and added the sling mounts and sling.

Good luck on your quest. It's not the prettiest girl at the ball, but she turns a few heads.

It may be repairable. See link below for the Stock Doc. He's at the Bob & Rocco shows too if there is one coming up nearby. He does an incredible job.

Those old 740's can be bought for little money these days due to their jamming issues caused by inferior metals used in the actions. If you want to sink money into yours, you may as well just buy another and use it for parts. JMHO.
