Remington 725

I have a M725 in 30.06 that I bought about 10 years ago. I have never fired it as it sits in a safe full time. I got it out Sunday for an oiling and discovered how touchy the trigger is. Slam the bolt and it is gone! I didn?t know there was a problem with triggers this far back. Should I have a gunsmith try and adjust it, or just replace it. Truthfully I don?t think I will ever use this rifle.

    I bought a Rem 725 last week. The gun is maybe 90-95%. The previous owner removed the paint from the hinged floor plate. Does anyone what would Rem would have used?

    Hi

    Hi All,
    Again i need some expert advice, I'm forced to liquidate some rifles that belonged to my dad, not enough room and insurance problems.I have last years blue book and the value of my rem. model 725 in .280is approx. $725. in the condition i dertime it to be in.I do not see many for sale, so i'm inclined to think that the rifle is not veryu common due to the low production numbers. If some one could give me a current blue bok value as in 90-95% condition i would really appreciate the info.
    Thanks very much

    How do you release the bolt on a Remington rifle, model 725?

    THEY most likely did not use paint if the floor plate is STEEL then it was BLUED and if Aluminum then it was Anodized

    It looks like alluminum. A magnet will not stick.

    The closest finish you can do 'at home' is one of the spray on bakeing laquers (brownells, dura-coat)
