The receipt says I paid $400 for it on November 23, 1992. So your assessment was correct. What do you charge for some of that custom work on the XP100s? If it doesn't sell I may be interested.
To all others,
In general I realize that most things depreciate, but some items actually appreciate. My wife has a 1968 Porsche 912 with 27k original miles on it. I don't know what they cost new in 1968 or even what it's worth now, but I'm betting 2-4 times higher now.
Then some may say that the XP100 is too expensive because then it would need bunch of money to customize it as in the previous photos by Fiftydriver. If that's the case you may want to look at Rifles Inc to see what kind of costs are involved in custom gun work. They make some great lightweight custom rifles
for around $3,000, but as their website says "plus customer-supplied action." You can buy a Rem 700 action new any day of the week, but try finding a completely stock XP100 with less then 130 rounds through it at your local gun shop. I doubt there are very few in any XP100s left in the world that are new in a box with no rounds through it and I'd like to think mine is somewhat close to that mark.
I realize the price may scare some off, but I think the gun is worth it and I hope someone (at least one guy) thinks so too. Thanks all for the interest.
