Howdy, There are quite a few XP-100's on Gun Broker for $650-1800. Option 1. I figure if I am into one for $550 shipped, and it's a 221 I am going to be in another $288 plus shipping for a new Bolt from PTG. Plus $275 for a stock. Plus $450 to true, fit bolt and barrel Plus $350 for a fluted barrel Plus $180 for a brake fitted Plus $160 for Cerakote. Plus $160 for mounts. Using original trigger stoned and worked over $100. So now we are at $2483. This is with me doing about half the work and a smith I trust doing half. I am a gunsmith, but I won't have a lathe when we move in 7 months. And probably won't have one for quite a while. Option 2 Defiance, Stiller, Hall and so on action $850-1400 Plus Cerakote $160 Plus mounts $160 Plus stock $275 Plus barrel fit and barrel fluted (no trueing so I am knocking off $350) $450 Plus trigger $200 Is $2095-2650 for what is a better gun. Option 3 HS Precision $2760. Price point makes them pretty even. I have only ever owned Remington Specialty Pistols and a few of them were bought 2nd hand as customs. I have never even touched a HSP, but i have owned a custom XP-100 with that stock on it. It was a 284 and the stock pinched my hand pretty hard. I am going to use a McMillan stock if I build something from scratch.
