    Hey guys,

    I've heard alot about the xp100 and was wondering if you can buy these new or are all of them old ones that just keep getting rebarreled. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Remington is putting them in XR100s

    Thought a competition-grade target rifle was out
    of your reach? Think again. The Model XR-100 Single Shot Target Rifle utilizes the legendary
    XP-100 single shot target pistol action. Its single-shot, solid-bottom receiver offers an extremely
    rigid and stable action, resulting in precision accuracy.

    I heard that you cant use a rifle action for a pistol so do they make any xp100 in pistol actions any more?

    Rem. no longer makes them. You will have to look in the used market to get a XP-100.

    Couldn't you use a new as yet unused action like a Borden, Surgeon or whatever to make a pistol since it has never been a rifle?

    I would think so.Not really sure what the laws are on,say,using an XR take off as the base for a pistol build.
    HS Precision also makes a pistol like the XP and so does Weatherby,but again,not cheap.

    Last I knew, according to ATF, an action has to be originally registered by the manufacturer as a rifle or pistol and then used as such. To use an XR to build a pistol is illegal and to use an XP to build a rifle is also illegal, although it has been done extensively in the benchrest world.

    It is NOT illegal to build a rifle on an XP-100 action. It IS illegal to build a pistol on an XR action.
