    I have found a "remington 700 vs sendero special" 300 win mag rifle and have a couple questions before I purchase. The guy has the box and it reads..( VS Sendero Special) it has HS Prec stock and matte finish non fluted.

    1. I cannot find any info on the net about this rifle (vs sendero special)?
    2. Is this a sendero rifle?
    3. What does (special) mean?

    Thanks

    Reminton has what they call Special Runs and it sounds like at some point they may have had a Sendaro Special run and it may have been at the request of someone. In any event here's the link...you'll see Special Runs...take a read, see what ya think. Chas

    That is what the old Senderos are. That is what they looked like before they came out with the stainless fluted model.

    I remember Cabelas was offering some different Remingtons on their website. Might be one of theirs.

    A buddy of mine has one of the old sendero's. He bought his used from a guy in Alaska. It has the HS stock and a heavy (non-fluted) matte finish barrel. It sounds like the same thing your talking about. But, his is in 25-06 not 300 Win. Fine shooting rifle. I just wish it had a better trigger.

    Yes it's just an older model of the Sendero. I had one in .300 Win Mag, that was matte blued. Good shooter.
