    XP 100 conversion

    I have a friend looking for info on converting a Rem Xp-100 pistol into a rifle. I am trying to find out what calibers this action supports. It looks alot like a Rem700 SA, but I don't think it is.

    Re: XP 100 conversion

    The XP100 action is the same action as the Model 600 action that was used in many a repeater rifle from Remington but without the hole in the bottom. 600s were available in 223, 308, and a few short magnums. The action is available today still in a rifle known as the XR100.

    It is thought to be a fine a single shot accuracy action.

    The XP is a single shot, so it all comes down to bolt face as to what cartridges it will accept.

    Kevin Weaver does a lot of XP100 work so you might want to talk to him about a build. www.weaverrifles.com

    Re: XP 100 conversion

    this one is chambered for .35rem. I believe this means .243 and .308 are already fit to this action? he owns a .270 and .22-250 so I don't really know what to recommend. he wants something for elk that he will be confident with from 4-500yds. how is that 6.5? I know he won't spend alot of money so he wwon't change the bolt out for this. I will check with mcmillan and HS for stock options, any other ideas? Thanks for the help.

    I forgot to say that the handle on the bolt is the same as a 700. I am beginning to wonder if I got the model wrong. he purchased it in '04 or '05 and the stock on it is a Mcmillan if this helps.

    7-08 with as long a barrel as possible?
    338 Federal?

    6.5 Rem Mag is a 0.534" bolt face and probably wouldn't be a great match up to 14" barrel.

    I am trying to talk him into making a rifle out of it so... yes it is the rear grip model and is a repeater. he never uses it in the current config. so I thought he might as well put the action to better use.

    You would be way better off to sell it and buy what you want. Those things are pretty pricey.

    I was thinking that it could be done for $12-1500? The reason it is appealing is that since he doesn't use it he can spread it out.

    Re: XP 100 conversion

    The XP100Rs are wholly suitable for a rifle build. Any Rem Mod 7 stock will work just fine allowing barrel contour.

    I did this one as a switch stock convertible.

    As a handgun...



    As a rifle...



    The rifle stock is a Accurate Innovations walnut stock with the full length aluminum bedding block. The barrel is a 1-12 Krieger chambered in 308Win.

    Sell it and buy one of the discontinued stainless Model 7's in 300 SAUM.........Zander's still has them for less than $450.....add shipping and dealers fees and you would probably break even for what you can get for the XP!!

    Don't think there is you just can't go the other way without permission. There were plenty of the original XP-100 turned into BR gun's great action to build on.

    Re: XP 100 conversion

    Old thread here but saw the XP-100 and got my attention. Back in the day of my silhouette days I had SSK build me a 338CJMK. That is short for "C" Crowley who was SSK's gunsmith at the time, "J" Jones being JD Jones the owner of SSK, "M" Mastedon which was a 100lb steel Mastedon target at the old Toronto silhouette range, "K" Killer cause it was one of the few guns that always knocked it down at 200 yards. It's a 35rem case necked down to 338. Excellent hunting round, way more than was needed for silhouette but I never lost a ram. Used it on a 500 yard rifle silhouette range in PA one time and tied the top rifle score so it is very accurate at long ranges.

    I believe I was getting 2100fps with the 200 grain Hornady bullet with a 12" barrel.

    For what you're wanting I think it might be an excellent option.
