Agree with you, but if Clemens doesn't find a Sendero he should look after the Tikka Hunter with fluted barrel. Looks great, shoots fantastically out of the box and are reasonable priced. Personally, I would recommend Tikkas with wooden or laminated stocks before the plastic ones. Those are not good enough, slippery and noisy (IMO). The only disadvantage that I see with Tikkas' is that they will be delivered with 24' bbl on max. Not good enough for a 7RM IMO, but to begin with more than sufficient. There is a big aftermarket for Tikkas' as well and if someone wishes he'll find f. ex. top barrels from Krieger, Bartlein etc.

I think rem missed the boat on that one when they came out with the sender for only right hand shooters.

I've to try a 700 CDL or XCR in that case and then upgrade them, or are going to purchase a European model.
Now, this is a US poll, not a world-wide poll...But it says that only 10-15% of people are left-handed. That leaves 85-90% right-handed.

It would be hard to justify tooling, CAD time, R&D, and trial and error for a company to justify making left-handed guns for 15% of it's clientel.

Granted, Remington has made left-handed 700's for quite a while now, so I do agree that they could have sold several more Senderos if they were offered in left handed as well.

I have several friends who hunt and shoot and they are dominantly left-handed, BUT they do almost everything right-handed. They shoot right-handed guns, and shoot them in right-handed form. Shoot right-handed bows. They do everything right-handed, except write.

But, like I said before, the overhead for manufacturing something simply to appease 15% of your clientel is hard to justify.

So, I can understand why Remington didn't make every model rifle in a left-handed configuration...There would still be dealers with left-handed 700's sitting on the shelves and stocked up in the stock room from 10 years ago.

Of course the market is the most important for any enterprise, Remington included. I accept that fully, look above! Concerning the Sendero I would like to add that the Sendero is not the normal diet both due to price, fabricated volume and its extra quality standards. So Remington's management should know that producing a small number of LH Senderos wouldn't be a big thing since LH actions er ready to use. Personally I'd like to have Senderos as top gun - platforms. I saw an impressive video by Gunwerks about "tuning" a 7RM Sendero. It was just about a triggerjob and bedding og the recoil - lug with epoxy to eliminate all possible tolerances. The gun shot awesome. For sure, that me and other interested lefties would like to purchase one if possible.

Re: For 7 mm enthusiasts

For an alternative, you could always order a Remington 700 SPS Stainless left handed rifle, and then pull the barrel, and stock immediately. Then order a Sendero SF 7mm bull barrel from Remington (if they'll sell one), and put you an H.S. Precision Sendero stock on it, and VIOLA!!! You have a left handed Sendero.

Sadly, it would cost you about the same as what it could cost me to go buy a Sendero SF in used condition. Which kinda pisses me off.

Wow M-R, you are faster than lightning! What a brilliant idea, and I'm going keep that in mind. If I can't get a Remington bull barrel, I'm going to purchase a stainless 26' bbl from Pac Nor, Walther or Lilja, no problem. Suppose that the action has to be adjusted as well for the best performance.

BTW, what do you think about my idea using Tikkas' as platform for a decent 7mm gun? Clemens was wondering what kind of product he should use, Ruger 77, Rem 700 and so on.
