Re: Special Remington Sendero Run Interest

Mudrunner,

Nice looking rifle, not to high jack this thread but I had a hunter this fall in B.C. sheep hunting and the J Lock some how got turned and his rifle would not fire and no one in camp brought along the key. Not a good position to be in, so I say rifles just like yours minus the J lock.

Re: Special Remington Sendero Run Interest

I agree, but i don't see that one happening, since that was Remington's play towards the "lawyer lock", and keeping their butts from being sued. For which part, I can't blame them.

I've never had any issues with my guns with the J-Locks.....That's odd. I've never heard of anyone having any issues like that, either. Then again, I guess stranger things have happened.

Thanks man, yeah, she's a shooter, that's for sure. Had her for 11 years now (since new).

Wish I could have one in all 4 of the calibers I listed. If they do a special run, I want serial number 1 of each caliber.

Re: Special Remington Sendero Run Interest

I would love to see Remington offer a Remington 700 Sendero SF in a 338 rum again. They were discontinued and with the latest surge in big calibers again I think they would sell like hotcakes. The 338 rum Senderos that have sold on GunBroker lately have gotten some serious high dollar $$$!

Oh, and I prefer the original Sendero SF with the No palm swell and No black flutes!!!

Here'a a couple of pics of my twin Remington 700 Sendero SF 7mm STWs (my were manufactured in 1997 & 1998 so no J-locks).

It would be great having a Remington 700 Sendero SF 338 rum to match my 7mm STWs!

You just had to do it, didn't you...........

Sometimes I hate you....

I always wanted a twin for my STW.

Well I at least you do not like my scopes (I think you prefer your Zeiss Conquest over my Vortex Viper PSTs).

But I have to say, in that regards, my Pop's Remington 700 BDL SS DM -B 7mm STW that I have been reloading for and shooting does have a Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50 AO MC. I can see no difference in quality between the two scopes (except my Vortexs are FFP and his Zeiss is SFP) and be pleased with either of them.

Re: Special Remington Sendero Run Interest

I like the Vortex. Actually been thinking about getting a Viper PST 6-24x50. Shhhh! Don't tell anyone....



The only thing I'd change on my Zeiss would be the reticle. I'd love to have the Mil-Dot reticle, over the Z-Plex. I would like to see a 30mm tube, 56mm end objective, and definitely a FFP setup. But those are just pipe dreams. I have told Zeiss that I'd like to see a Conquest HD5 5-25x56 w/ 30mm tube, and FFP, but I doubt that will ever happen.
