I'm wondering if it is a mercury recoil reducer?!?!? The stock has a really fat palm swell, and dual front swivels (most forward one is broken off) So, I'm thinking it is not the factory sendero stock. Can't wait to get back home and rip it apart! Oh, I was also able to get 100rds of new remington brass off of Gunbroker for $106.25 shipped! Can't wait!!!
On edit: Yeah, would love some pics for ideas!

Butter Bean,

I wouldn't stress the flattened primers. They aren't mecessarily the best indicator for an over pressure load. I say that because it may be caused by loose primer pockets and you may actually see the primers flatten with the same piece of brass, the more your round count is. I've actually seen this with my .30-06 AI. Just a thought. Stiff bolt lift and and ejector marks are better indicators of a high pressure load and shouldn't be ignored.

Black Sheep,

You might want to consider using Warne Maxima rings. They are super strong and I have them on three of my rifles. They are also compatable with Picatiny Rails and they don't move. Just a thought.

You can see them on my 7 STW:

That orange stock Looks interesting, It should be easy to re-paint. There are some good primers that you could just cover the existing paint and then with your color of choice. I'd put a pachmeyer decelarator to replace the butt pad and then tap out that broke stud and replace it.

The stock, In my book, is worth saving and wouldn't be too big of a problem to remedy.

Dan

That pic was taken by the seller on Gunbroker. It was a 6.5-20x40 but since I already had the mk4, I didn't get the scope. I have two buddies with Sendero's in STW, and they are both hammers! Both have killed elk and deer, just not at really long range. I'm hoping to fix that soon....

Ive got a set of Warnes on my Tikka, and I really like them. Guy I know has the Burris signatures on his 338, and loves them. Only problem is that Brownells shows them on backorder. Who knows, if they don't arrive in stock soon, then I'm definitely going Warne!

Hey Sako 75, check out the thread in the Rifles, Barrels, and Ballistics section titled " New Stock Line" by Tikka Shooters. They have a stock for Sako 75' series V, but.....you decide! WOW, very nice.....But!

7 stw - those stocks look great but they are also heavy and I can't imagine packing that around on my back on a moose or elk hunt.....
