It was made in the 02-03 time-frame. It was supposedly (according to Remington) the last Sendero SF 7mmSTW to ever leave the assembly line. They had already put a stop to production 2 weeks prior, but my former bossman knew someone up there, and told them how much it would mean to his "client" if they'd make one more. So they built 1 final rifle....And it appeared about 4 weeks later. Said the Remington guy told him they had to hand build it from scratch, but charged us standard price for it.
Don't know how true the story is, but it's easy to believe...b/c this thing came with the smoothest bolt, trigger, and shot 1-holers with factory ammo... I've never had a factory built gun (other than my AccuMark, which is a hand-built factory rifle) do that.
I don't know quite HOW true the story is, or how much was exaggerated by my bossman (I never known him to overexaggerate things), but that's what the word on the street was.
So, it's an 02-03 model....Don't know how much difference that makes.
Sorry for telling the whole story again....I just love how everything played out. It was like a miracle to me. I had wanted one just like it that we had in the store that had been sitting around for quite a while, but someone had bought it just before I had the money saved up... So Jay thought it would be a nice thing to do to order one for me. Which I thought was mighty nice of him. He always did treat me like I was one of his own kids...I'd still be workin for him 10 years now, if his business hadn't been bought out by a rich *******.
