I bought a Remington Model 700 Sendero recently. Its got the cobb web stock and bull barrel but its a black finish. Maybe parkerized. Its not stainless like I've seen in sendero pictures. Today I took the action out and the stock has and aluminum bedding block and pillars which I also didn't know about. Did these guns come in black finish or is this a different action in the stock and with a sendero barrel?

Its a .300 winchester mag

Also what torque is proper for the action screws? 45, or the traditional 65?

That's my gun. Who makes the stock? Is it a Remington?

    The stock on your rifle is an HS Precision. That's how they came from the factory.

    Okay, I knew some of the rifles came with HS Precision stocks.

    So 45 or 65 in/lbs on the action screws?

    If it has the stock bottom metal, 45. If it has a stronger aftermarket bottom metal then 65.

    DO I have something Special here.
    Mine is actually stamped "<span style="font-style: italic">Sendero Special</span>" on the barrel.
    It's 7mm mag, I put the M-24 stock on it.
    I bought this when they first came out, I think around 1992-3.

    No. The old original Senderos were stamped as such.

    Looks like we both have regular guns. But that's fine with me, I just wasn't sure. The stock threw me off. I wasn't expecting to find an aluminum bedding block and pillars under my action
