1911, if you wind up not liking it, let me know and we can meet F-2-F, and I'll give you your money back for it, since Alabama ain't that far away from you. I have been wanting a little brother to my Sendero SF 7mmSTW, and the 7Mag is the next step down. Plus I'm just a huge fan of the 7mm calibers.

I think you will be satisfied with the purchase, my hunting partner bought the same rifle last year about this time. His is the black matt finish with a 24" heavy barrel (sendero contour) it shoots very well. About 2 weeks ago I watched him shoot a fly off our backstop at 100, not bad. The only thing you may not like is the factory trigger his sucks, waiting on a jewell.

Re: 7mag sendero NEW, or OLD?

I had thought ot was ss but it ended up being matte black no flutes has a 26" from the reciever barrel. It was the flash that washed out the black in the pictures. A couple dings in the stock and an ever so slight bit of back of the safe looking rust haze.
He ended up driving an hour to meet and throwing in some leuopold rings and bases. for the 850$ I even lucked out at wal mart and found a box of Federal fusion ammo, and 2 boxes of nosler bullets 140 gr.

Is this concidered a 24 or 26 inch barrel?
Is this a 9.25 twist?
