Remington Sendero

Well this might be old news for some but I just got off the phone with Remington and they are no longer making the best rifle they had a Sendero. I am going to put this in the WTF were they thinking Category. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] I asked the lady why they quit making them and she said they were not very popular. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] Well I wonder if I should stop shooting my 7mm STW Sendero because maybe it will be worth some money some day.

Re: Remington Sendero

Well it is old news, but worth talking about. BIIIIIIIIIIGGGGGG Mistake. It was one of their nicer looking rifles and a good shooter. Talk about stupid moves. I guess the POS 710's were outselling it. You have to hand it to the bean counters. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

You can see how I reacted to this stupid marketing move.
I have a .25-06 & a .300 Sendero & other than a .223 Varmit,
I have moved my other Remingtons. I guess they want Savage
to take the average price market & Win. Stealth & others to get the rest of the market.

Re: Remington Sendero

I think Remington wants to sell more of there custom shop Rifles and that is why there is No more Sendero. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] I mean what are you going to buy? A custom shop rifle at 1200+ dollars or a Sendero that will shoot just as good that you can pick up at your Sporting Good store down the street for $800.00 I know which one I would buy, since I have had 5 or 6 Sendero's over the last 10 years. Oh well I guess there are enough used ones out there if I guy looks hard enough he will be able to find one.

I think you are correct in thinking Remington wants to build
more custom rifles, however the customer already had that
option & this appeals to some. But I think for most people
who are ready to spend more for that special rifle will go
to a good Smith like some on this forum & get exactly what
they want without factory restrictions.
It is for this reason & other changes that I have seen from
Remington lately that makes me wonder about them.

Re: Remington Sendero

the same company that owns Remington also owns DPMS, H&R, NEF, Bushmaster and a few more companies. They are not even shooters.
Watch what happens over the next few years. Only the elite can afford a Remington. I still love my used uns. The do them one little holes. hehe
