Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner

Bros......

I just found a 7mm sendero that has been rechambered into a STW. Do you think this is as good as a standard sender STW? Worth jumping on?? Or keep looking for a sendero STW???? Just want to see what yall think with more experience that I have.
Thanks
mario

I would definitely go with say a VS or a Sendero opened up to an STW by a competent gunsmith. Just find that out, like "how does it shoot the stw" and it'd be a go. In time, if you shoot enough you are going to re barrel it any way. You get all the other pieces with the Sendero or the VS model that looks just like the Sendero. You should save $200, it's worth it. If you shoot the barrel out get a Sendero barrel then.

Mario, IF, the rechambering was done RIGHT, that gun can be as good or BETTER then one originally chambered in the STW. A lot of times, the new reamer has tighter tolerances then the factory reamer. If at all possible, if you find out a little of the history, ie, gunsmith, reamer make, and has it been fired any, and if so, hoe does it shoot, those things will make the decision a little easier. BUT, if the whole package is way below usual asking, you really can't go wrong, because if it does not shoot, you still have two major components toward a better build.
Bottom line, if the price is right, buy it! Also find out if the barrel was cut back at all.
Good luck, keep us posted.

I agree with these fellas. If you have the money and it's cheap enough then you can always prop it in he corner until you can re barrel it. But...you may get lucky and never need too. It would be nice if you could shoot it before you buy it. .

I would add that you probably want a barrel that is 26". Most factory 7mmRM's are 24"

Bob, ALL factory long action Senderos are 26, even the non magnums. The rifle Mario is referring to MAY be a bargain. That being said, I don't know what the price is!
Also, the SPS rifles in any magnum are also 26 inch. They finally got smart about that. I actually had a SPS in seven mag awhile ago, and it shot pretty darn well. The pro mark trigger was a drag. That thing loved 140 CT bullets.
