my dad is looking for a carbine semi auto 750 remington. i found a 742 looks to be in great condition, i know some have had issues with the 742 , i myself have owned a 7400 and 750 carbine both jammed . but i will say i never held a gun i liked more than those two and i have one thats never jammed even when i tried to jam it. never owned a 742 so i would like some input on them ? thanks

Look at where the bolt slides. If it looks kinda waivy, it's been very heavily used.

Just make sure it cycles BEFORE you buy it. Dont ask me how I know that.

I'll second that. Some 742 rifles are a little beat up. They wasn't built to be shot a whole lot. I've heard of guys that converted them to a straight slide bolt action and got more service out of beat up rifles.
