Between all the sender models? Is it the finish, fluting, stainless etc.. I do not own a sender but have realized the are growing in me and I am very curious. Love the way they look
Deffinetly like the SS with black flutes but without works as
If it would be a limited run on that model and price wasn't stupid crazy. Why not order the one ya want instead of just certain calibers. Just my .02. They are beautiful rifles.
1) No Clue....But they screwed up big time in doing so, IMO. Probably thought it had been around long enough and wanted to put out something new to increase sales, or some other BS money-hungry reason.
2) Sendero (original) - blued finish, heavy barrel, non-fluted, jeweled bolt
Sendero SF - Stainless barrel and action, fluted barrel, jeweled bolt
Sendero SFII - Stainless barrel and action, black fluted barrel, jeweled bolt
The stainless w/ black flutes is the Sendero SFII.
3) That is an EXCELLENT idea! Why not just be able to order in whatever caliber you so desire, with whatever twist barrel would be nice!
I'd order a Sendero SF .280 A.I. (Nosler SAAMI Spec chamber) w/ 26" 1:9" twist, and a worked 40-X trigger (no X-Mark, they suck). I'd enjoy shooting that thing until the barrel melted and warped...Hahaha! Plus, imagine it with a NightForce NXS 5.5-22x56 ZS HS MOAR w/ a good rail and rings. That would be the ultimate whitetail setup, from 50-1000 yards.
