Remington Sendero History?

I just bought a Remington Sendero in 7 mag and should be receiving it any day now. I know it's an older one because I paid quite a bit less than what the new ones are going for. It does have a 24 inch heavy barrel, no flutes, and was billed as 98%. I've got an inspection period of three days and the first thing I'll do is check the throat for erosion.

My question is this. The new Senderos enjoy an excellent reputation for out-of-the-box accuracy. I don't know if the earlier ones enjoyed that reputation as well. My limited research shows they were first introduced in 1994.

Anyone have any thoughts or experiences with the early Senderos?

Thanks.
Matt

I had an early 270 sendero and my friend had one in 25-06. With the loads it liked they were both 1/2 moa guns.

I have an early model Sendero in .300win mag that has had a world of rounds through it. I shot it this a.m. and the first six shots-three at 100yds and three at 200yds went into a ragged hole each. They shoot.

Thanks guys! I kind of jumped on it without knowing a whole lot about the gun. It's my first Rem 700, mostly been a Mauser shooter, and now I'm excited to get a look at it. Thanks for passing on your positive experiences.

I like to bed the recoil lug.

Just the back, not the bottom or front though.

Do I foresee a Nightforce being put on that rifle?
