Have you talked with Arrowhead or LR Customs? Also, do you follow the SML group on FB?
Every once in awhile a good used rifle comes up for sale on MM. Not often but they do come up for sale at times.

You're likely going to have to sell your BP Xpress outright or, take a beating on it and use just the action for a custom build. Those single shot actions are hard to find.

I'm not sure if Arrowhead is still doing conversions so you'd have to ask Luke. LR Customs will convert your BP Xpress to a SML 45cal. Contact Levi Reed at LR Customs.

Yeah I have spoken to both Levi and Luke. The SML's can get pretty expensive real quick.. Regular Remington UML are still selling for $1000 on GB. Like you said I'm seeing just the single shot action go for $700. I'd rather sell the BP as is than tear it apart.

I had a BP I bought in 2014. I know the rifle well. Accurate but a pain in the ask. Three breech plug replacements. I had the Arrowhead ignition system installed in the LW barrel and sold that separate also. I'd already replaced the McMillan thumbhole with a Game Warden stock, so I was all set with that. Sold that stock easily for $200. The BP Xpress is a rifle built for the guy that gets it out before the season starts, shoots it a couple times and then hunts. Its not a target rifle.

I sent it off to Jeff at Bestill Creations and it came back as a dandy SML rifle. So far it shoots .3moa at 600yds. I can't find a longer range to shoot close to home.
