REMINGTON XP-100

The Remington XP-100 chambered in 7mm Benchrest Remington was an experimental rifle caliber bolt-action pistol produced from 1963 to 1985. They were marketed as the most accurate pistols ever made and were commonly used for small-medium game hunting, competition shooting, and target practice. The action is designed off the Remington 600. This custom model has a black fiberglass stock, glass bedded action, and Williams rear and circular hood front sights. It is drilled and tapped for a rail and end-of-barrel front sight. This XP-100 is in very good condition.

The Remington XP-100 (from eXperimental Pistol number 100) is a bolt-action pistol produced by Remington Arms from 1963 to 1998. The XP-100 was one of the first handguns designed for long-range shooting, and introduced the .221 Fireball and 6×45mm. The XP-100 was noted for its accuracy and is still viewed as competitive today in the sport of handgun varminting, which it helped create,[1] as well as in metallic silhouette shooting.

The XP-100 was based on Remington’s short action bolt action carbine, the Remington Model 40X, which influenced the later Remington Model 600 rifle.[2] The XP-100 was initially introduced with a 10+34 in (270 mm) barrel set into a nylon stock with an unusual center-mounted grip. Chambered in .222 Remington in early prototypes, the short barrel produced significant noise and muzzle flash. Subsequently the case was shortened to reduce powder capacity to a volume more suited to the shorter barrel of a pistol. The resulting cartridge, the .221 Fireball, produced factory loaded velocities of over 825 m/s (2,700 ft/s) from the short barrel, and accuracy rivaling the parent .222 Remington, one of the most accurate cartridges made.[1]

All but the XP-100R model were single-shot designs, while the XP-100R had a small internal magazine (holding four rounds), similar to most bolt-action rifles. The R model – for “repeater” – was made 1991-1997 in .223 Rem., .250 Savage, 7mm-08 Rem., .308 Win., .35 Rem., and 350 Rem. Mag. It was reintroduced in 1998, this time without sights, in .223 Rem., .22-250 Rem., .260 Rem., and .35 Rem.[2]
