xp 100 Safe Storage Login/Join 



posted
How do you guys store you xp 100's or other SP's in your safe. Especially those with rifle scopes. I only have 3 and didn't have much problem until tonight. I put the Leupold rifle scope on the xp 100r and went to put it back in the safe. It seemed it was either prop it on the ocular bell of the scope or the muzzle brake. The other two bolt sp's have bipods and I extend them and put them down and the grip up. With the pistol scope on the rear grip xpr I could put it grip down and the scope didn't touch anything. How do you do it.

Get a bigger safe. You can always use more room.

While this is definitely true it still only leaves three options that I can see. Stand it on the muzzle. Stand it on the scope bell OR build a rack for the safe designed for SP's

Stand it on the muzzle with a pad to protect the muzzle. Standing it on the scope bell goes against the grain for me. If you have room for the rack, and the time to build it, so much the better.

Agreed! I would have to get a new safe to have room for a rack.

Aaron with all of yours you must have to plan ahead about a week to shoot the 34#er just to be able to get it out.

Honestly not really a problem. I don't have that many xp receivers. All of them except one are switch barrels. Do have quite a pile of barrels sitting on a shelf though.... I've thought about building a rack to hold them, but it seems like other stuff takes up my time.

Aaron, You need help storing some of those barrels? I'm sure some can be head spaced to other actions without any problems Big Grin

I have 7 SP's and all I did was machine two wood blocks. They are 24 inches long, 6 inches high. I machined 4 slots in each. All 2 inches deep and varying widths. I then covered them in felt. This allows all the pistols to stand upright. I have them all pointing towards each other on one shelf of my safe. Now to fill that eight spot!

So would I but from what I envision from the description I don't think I will have room for it but maybe I'm wrong.

Ah! I didn't say they wouldn't fit in my safe (they are there now)only that I didn't think they would fit the way the blocks were described. Thanks very much for the kind offer to look after them and treat them kindly though. thumbup

Or instead of all that work, you can just buy a W-GEAR rear rest bag and use it as a pillow for each of your SP's to keep the scopes off the floor.

Cody I had thought of something similar but have to admit I hadn't thought of using the rear rest bag. I do have one of each size already. Good products.

I put mine resting on the muzzle with a slight to lean in on the back wall of the safe. That way all the weight is on the muzzle and none on the scope.

I have all of mine in soft cases-lay them flat on a shelf that runs the width of the safe and stack them on top of each other. Easy and works well for XP-100's Contenders, Strikers and Exemplars. Been doing this for years with no damage.

I re-read this thread and realized I never mentioned what I am actually doing. The contenders hang in the door rack. Then I have 1 striker, 2 xp 100's and I count my Ruger charger since is has to store about the same. The striker, Charger and the center grip xp have bipods and I extend the legs past the muzzle and stand them on the legs. The xp100r doesn't have a bipod and I lay it across the shelf although it barely fits.
