If the rails inside the action are worn out, like some I've seen, hang it on the wall and buy you a new rifle.

Re: need some help

That's exactly what I'm talking about. Being a 742 Wood master tells me it's probably 30-40 years old and has been shot a lot. The only way to repair it, if the parts are still available, is to replace the receiver and bolt. For what that would cost, you could probably almost pay for a new rifle. Hang it over the fireplace and get you a new rifle. Sorry.
