    I saw an ad online for a Sendero (not sure about the different versions, but it has a round fore-end and no flutes on the barrel) that came with Leupold rings and bases, and 6 boxes ammo for $750. Ad states only blemish is a small scratch on the end of the barrel.

    Is this an exceptional deal that I should pick up? I'm looking to build a custom gun, would it be worth the money to use the action from this gun and sell the rest? Or even use the stock that's already on the gun?

    Remember, if you happen to find it, I called dibs!:D

    What are the factory stocks and barrels worth?


    Sell the factory stock and buy this one is what I'd do:
    Shooters Discount, Inc. - Rem 700 LA Medalist Tactical - OD Green/Black Web

    If its a Sendero it already has a good stock, if its made by H-S.

    Your not going to build a sendero any cheaper, if your donor action is $400 your stock $300. Your already near $750 and you don't have your barrel yet.

    Thats about what I paid for my sendero 7 years ago, new. Remington has sure gone up since.

    If your going to biuld a custom then it,s to much for a doner
    rifle if you have to replace the barrel and the stock.

    If the stock is a mcmillan or a laminated rem you can biuld a
    shooter by just rebarreling ,But its not a bad price if it will shoot.

    It's the HS Precision stock. It also comes with 6 boxes of ammo. Is this a "good" deal or an exceptional one?

    I assume being not fluted, it is a blued action... worth $400.00

    The stock is an HS worth $300.00

    + the ammo.....

    it is worth the asking price.... Not a smoking deal, but a good one....

    depends on what you want it for .... shoot the way it is or rebarrel..

    You'll be limited to the choices being a magnum action....

    just my 2 cents...

    I guess I'll stick to saving up for a custom Savage then.

    Sendero's have fluted barrels. So maybe he re-barreled it.

    They used to make a matte black model, with a non-fluted barrel. This is just like mine. I have a 25-06. I have rebarreled since I shot the first barrel out.

    Figure $500 when It comes time to rebarrel. I would be proud to own that rifle, they are good ones.

    I'd stick with the RM over the stw... less punishment, less powder, and the RM will take care of anything North America can offer...

    just my 2 cents....

    Bigcat.....I agree with Flybuster, Not all Sendero barrels are fluted. I have a 300 Win. Mag. and it is one of the first ones with the matte finish. Jim
