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.

    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.

    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.

    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
