Re: LRH Specialty Handguns

Richard Near of Near Manufacturing has bases in stock for the XP-100.
He currently has 10 MOA bases, 20 MOA, and soon to have 25 MOA and a 60 MOA base (For those who really want to stretch things out [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]). He also makes bases for Savage Strikers.

[/ QUOTE ]
this really surprises me, I called Near 3 months ago for a base and he told me it would be at least a year or more before he could help me. I called Ken Farrell and they shipped a 20 MOA base the same day. and I was surprised by how good the machine work was.
It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.

Re: LRH Specialty Handguns

I know Richard does not have some bases in stock for certain actions and he is trying to play catch up on them. I spoke with him today and that is why I know he had one 20 MOA XP base (original action) and ten of the 10 MOA (original action) XP bases.
I also have one of Ken's bases on my 6mm-284 XP and it is also a good quality base. Two things I would do differently with Ken's: Make it a lower profile (Like Richard's) and Ken's slots on my extended pic base is solid in the middle instead of slots all the way across. When using both a LER scope and a rifle scope you mount the LER scope as far forward as possible while you mount the rifle scope as far back as you can.
The advantage of Ken's mount is that he can make on that extends further forward than the Near, for the XP which is very handy when shooting the 3-12 Burris LER prone (especially if you have short arms).
Both have their pros and cons for Specialty Handguns. I'm glad you mentioned Farrel's base-It is a good one!

Re: LRH Specialty Handguns

I have both also, and I definitely like the Near better as it doesn't sit so high off the action, and it has cross slots all the way along it, which helps tremendously from prone with the extended eye relief of the 3-12X Burris @ 12X.

Re: LRH Specialty Handguns

another place to get LRP's is HS Precision. (my favorite). they do not do wildcats but do have the full range of WSM's and WSSM's now.
