    What\'s the difference?

    What's the difference between a Rem. 700 PSS and a Sendero? Anything other than stainless and flutes?

    IIRC

    Some of the PSS models were/are short actions.

    Some PSS had 24" barrels (short action types I believe).

    I've not come across a PSS with a J-Lock.

    All Senderos are long action.

    I don't recall seeing anything but 26" barrels on Senderos.

    Some Senderos have J-Locks.

    The PSS uses a chunkier stock, palm swells and such, generally nearly black in color.

    The Senderos use a slim(er) hunting type stock, many are grey with black spiderweb.

    There, now someone will correct me but it's okay cuz I forget things sometimes (and I quickly forget they correct me too).

    I found a few references to Sendero short actions in non-magnum on a few forums but can't find anything on a Dealer or Remington page. I guess perhaps the Sendero II maybe offered in the SAUM but again I can't find anything on non-magnum chamberings.

    Do you have a good reference to the 22-250 Sendero offering? Just want to know and be able to confirm for future reference.

    There were a few PSS runs made with 5-R barrels also

    I'm still looking in barrels to locate one of those. I have an early 24" greenish parkerized PSS with the old style crown (beveled on the outter edge of the barrel) but its a 6 groove.
