I saw the announcement on their website and it was interesting. IMO Savage is still the go-to rifle for anything less than $800 or so (The Ruger American seems to be doing very well too.). I think their Sendero IIs are nice, but I'd rather buy a used Savage and build it to exactly what I want, so I'd go with Savage even if I was looking for a more expensive rifle.
I absolutely agree with 2ndtimer about Remington.. a day late and a dollar short. Remington is just a disappointment at every turn lately. I've got high hopes that once Freedom Group changes hands that their new owner will bring them back to the company we all grew up loving.
The transition to barrel nuts by multiple manufacturers is interesting though. Who knows long term what kind of changes that could lead to.. maybe one day it'll be more common to build your own rifle than to buy it as one whole unit?
The Jeep has been a lot of fun, but time to come back to my first hobby.. shooting.
