Original sendero question?

Was there a dealer exclusive offered prior to the original sf sendero in stw? I heard remington offered the first sf sendero as a dealer exclusive in stw prior to the release of what we would know now as the sf1. Mine doesn't say "sendero" anywhere on it. But looks like the sf sendero, it has no palm swell. Any truth to this? Wondering if someone can give me the lineage of the model in stw, thanks

Re: Original sendero question?

It's not called a Sendero SF1, it's just simply called the "Sendero SF". The newest model is actually designated by Remington as the "Sendero SF II".

The original Senderos were blued rifles, and non-fluted heavy barrels.

Here's how the generations go, and how they are distinguishable:

Sendero - Blued rifle, jeweled bolt, non-fluted heavy barrel, black & gray HS Precision stock, no palmswell, single swivel stud.

Sendero SF - Stainless rifle, jeweled bolt, stainless & fluted (SF) heavy barrel, same black & gray HS Precision stock as the original Sendero.

Sendero SF II - Stainless rifle, jeweled bolt, stainless & fluted heavy barrel with black painted flutes. A new style black & gray HS Precision stock that has a heavy palmswell and double swivel studs and a flatter wider forend.



Your rifle is a Sendero SF. It's not some dealer-only special run deal. I have the exact same rifle, bought it brand new 12 years ago from the outdoors store I was working at, and it doesn't say the word "Sendero" on it anywhere, except the box it came in.

To my knowledge, the STW's and the RUM's were pretty much the only calibers that were never stamped with the word "SENDERO" on the barrel after the caliber designation.

Here's a picture of the caliber on the barrel of my Sendero SF 7mm STW.

Re: Original sendero question?

Several years before that Bill Hicks had a run made of blued heavy fluted rifles.They came in 7mm rem mag ,300 win mag and 25-06.I think they had 75 built in each caliber.I have one in 300 wm it was and still is a tack driver.It's known in my hometown as the black stick of death,,,GRIN
Interestingly I took my rifle to a gunsmith when I first got it to have it trued.He called me in a week and said come get it,,,it didn't need any truing...True story!

Do you mean a stainless barrel with black flutes?
