Re: What would be some of the things that i could do with this gun?
I'm assuming that you don't have a sendaro as you didn't mention that. This is a sporter gun.
If you want to hold costs down and still get a new barrel, I'd look on EBAY for a 7Mag Sendaro Barrel. You can get take off's and used barrels for $35. A Sendaro stock with the bedding block in it is $40. So then, do your own bedding job for $5 with some epoxy and synthetic oil as a release agent and you're on your way. Now wrap some sandpaper on a deepwell socket and root out the barrel channel till there's almost nothing left( you got it for nothin) and if you don't like the way it shoots, have a smith ram another reamer in .250 deeper and get a nice custom chamber to see what you can do with that. have it recrowned, get the rangefinder as mentioned above. All but the rangefinder, you're only out about $250 total including smith work. If you don't like it when you're done, put the old stock and barrel back on, sell the crap and your now an experienced gun nut! You'll do it again!
If you have something that you disassemble and reassemble enough times, sooner or later, you'll have two!
