Re: Remington Sendero SF II

G'day

I have one in 300 RUM and it shoots half inch groups at 200m off a bench. I use 180 grain corelokts in front of 96g ADI AR2217 (Fed mag primers). I've used it on pigs and goats out to 250-280m out the window of a 4WD with fantastic results. I find it comfy to shoot along with my 338WM. I've worked up 150 and 180 Accubonds but can only manage an inch group at 200m.

Re: Remington Sendero SF II

Ian,
It's very easy to identify the new trigger without removing the stock. While the older trigger has vertical grooves on the face of the trigger, the new trigger is smooth with a rib running down the backside of it. Or, you can function test it. If, with an unloaded rifle, and pointed in a safe direction, with the safety on, pull on the trigger, if it will allow a little movement, it is the old trigger. The new trigger won't move rearward when the trigger is pulled. This is because the older trigger only blocks the sear. The newer trigger blocks both the sear and the trigger. Hope this helps.

Re: Remington Sendero SF II

Thanks guys, wish I had read this earlier because I was down in the U.S. today where the rifle is stored. Now I know, I will check next time. Takes months to get the papers and ducks in a row to bring a rifle across the invisible line.

Re: Remington Sendero SF II

Shane,

Didn't call--I'm not sure about the deal I'm involved in. I am looking at a 7 STW Sendero with the Gen. I stock, but not sure yet if I will buy it. The stock has a couple of dings--one near the rear sling stud from the sling swivel rubbing, and an almost invisable spot at the top of the cheekpiece, near the pistol grip.

Let me know if you're interested.

Thanks,
Jim
