    I have heard from several folks that there are a couple of manufactuerers for center grip XP-100 bolt action pistol triggers.

    Any truth to that?

    Thinking of doing a 700 Clone custom on a Pierce or Stiller receiver. But I want to use the McMillan XP stock.

    HS Precision 2000 is $2300.

    2nd hand XP is $500-800 Stilller or Definace is about $850
    $300 Lilja or Krieger stainless barrel
    XP stock is $330 shipped
    I'll have whatever I have in my time on the lathe, and reamers, gauges. $250.
    Plus Cerakote if I don't tool up to do that myself $250.

    Kind of hard to justify building one isn't it?

    If you start by buying an original plastic stock XP-100 you get several parts, particularly the trigger assembly.

    Very nice pistol. I had not seen interupted fluting on a pistol before. Looks good!

    Specs on the above XP-100: Chambered in 260 Rem, 15-7/8" barrel. It shoots Lapua 123 Scenars stable to a little over 1000 yards. I bought it used. I don't know it's history or who did the smithing. The action and trigger are standard XP-100.

    The two Contenders in the photo are a 25" 17 Remington and a 16" 45-70. The fourth pistol is a 950B Berreta in 22 short. Of all the pistols I own those give (top to bottom) highest velocity, highest muzzle energy, longest range, and smallest size.

    I have had both as well, but from now on all of mine will have Dell's-I like them that much

    Thanks I contacted Dell, I'll get it going in a few months.
