    I have a opportunity to acquire a .300 Win. Mag. Sendero first generation, blued with no flutes or j-lock. This Sendero is in excellent condition, H S Precision stock no palm swell, one owner and less than 100 rnds down the tube.
    What is the gun worth?

    I have purchased and set up several of these. All but one were 300 wins, the other a 7 REM. They all have shot great. Even better after some easily done bedding and trigger work. The average price I paid was $800 a couple just under.

    Sendero 1st gen are usually great pipes. If you can get it for anywhere near what Broz said, I'd give her a good once over to make sure it isn't boogered up and send some lead with it if it's good to go.

    I bought one several years ago. It only has one problem. As long as I keep it clean, it will shoot .5 MOA. After about 15 shots or so the accuracy degrades to over 2 MOA. Run a brush and a few patches through it and it's back to .5 MOA. So I just keep it clean. I am too scared to try J-B bore paste. Afraid I'll loose the accuracy that I do have. Other than that, it is the most accurate rifle, new or used, I have ever bought. I got mine for $500. That is only because they though there was a problem with the rifle. You would pull the trigger and there would be a delay before firing. It ended up being a small amount of rust on the main spring. Cleaned it up and everything went to working like it should.
