    I have a Remington 742 woods master that has run out of steam does anyone know approximately how much it would cost to have it fixed.

    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.

    during hunting season I oiled and cleaned it every night and in the morning when I would pull the bolt back I would here this metal on metal screech and it started to jam.

    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.
