I am legitimately curious, not trying to be a smart ***......... What makes the original Senderos desirable?

They are the most accurate "out of the box" factory gun ever made. Period.

If you happen to find two of them let me know. I have a SF1 that I love, but always wanted a special.

Definitely not even close to the same league as a sendero unless the stars align and it happens to be that one rifle off the line that is magical.

I would put the old BDL Varmints equal to or ahead of the Sendero in quality, fit and finish.

I agree 100% … I'd trade every original Sendero (1994-2002) I owned for an early Varmint Special from 1968-1985.
It's been my personal experience the VS's are more accurate than the Senderos

FWIW, Remington took the Varmint Special platform, made it "tacti-cool" (matte black with composite stock), and called it a Sendero.
Factory matte black guns were just becoming popular and accepted by the public in the mid 90's when the Sendero was introduced.

Blake,

I have a 1969 Remington 700 Varmint in 6mm Remington. It has become a safe queen but still one of my favorite rifles.

I would much rather have the wood stock varmint special over the sendero, I just prefer the wood and they will both shoot better than I am capable of anyway.

I may be wrong but wasn’t the 25/06 the only long action out of the original wood stocked varmint specials ?
