Remington xp100
« on: February 26, 2020, 05:13:26 pm »
I dont know why, but for some reason i have a " need" for  one.


Any one own one? 

Anything too look for?   I know rem had a safety recall in the late 70s for thier bolt actions.  So if i find an ealier model i need to see if that has been done( does remington still do these for free if its not done?)

Yep.  Just get a good scope with a lot of eye relief.  I have an older one in 221 Fireball.  It's as accurate as can be. 

Are you getting one of the "old school" in 221 or one of the newer chamberings? 

Wikipedia has a pretty good write up on them.

Not sure one that one yet. 

I was at the range and guy let me shoot his in 22-250.

I had the light bulb go on and thought this would make a great  pest destroyer, but more fun than a normal rifle.   Not to mention its size ment it could live in a kitchen drawer.  For easy access.   That is if i can ever find a place to buy.

This is typical of well run (our old favorite) companies.  I purchased a Ruger Single-Six three screw.  It had the safety upgrade done on it before I bought it.  I contacted Ruger about the upgrade and long term reliability.  They told me that if I sent it in they would go through it and assure it was up to standard.  Three weeks, ship to receive, and I had the gun back with a new upgrade installed and a complete work order and explanation of what they did.  Reader's Digest version of the paperwork was thank you for trusting Ruger, being a responsible owner, and since materials have improved over the decades, they installed all new materials to assure the longest and most reliable life of the firearm.

Dillon, MEC, RCBS, and Smith&Wesson are just a few others that I have had go far above and beyond what a consumer would expect in customer service.
If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

Just a fyi, ruger warrenty  services is the only gun company  that if they can not fix you gun, will destroy it, register it destroyed with the aft and pull one off the line and put your serial number on it.  That way the new gun can be mailed back too you.    That has to cost them a lot of money and head ache.

I ended up not winning the auction, placed my max bid and went out to dinner.  No big deal.  There are plenty more out there.

I shot IHMSA metallic silhouette in the early 80's (prior to learning about IPSC)... the hot bolt pistols in those days were the Wichita and XP... prior to being a factory produced pistol, pistol smiths would chamber a 7BR (bench rest... very short .308 case) to 7-08... 7mm on a .308 case...
