Xp-100 is home
So my first xp build is finished and it returned home today. If the weather cooperates I’ll put it to work on some steel tomorrow. The experience was pretty painless. I think the most stressful part was trying to decide what caliber. In the end I just kept it the same caliber it was. Everyone needs a 223.
I talked to Mike Abel from Rogue Precision Gunworks or 40xmike here on the forums. I ordered a barrel from Lilja. Then since Ernie was so nice to get a group buy going on mcmillian stocks I ordered one of those too.
Fast forward 8 months from the start of the process and it’s home and looks good. If it shoots half as good as it looks I’ll be very happy. Mike was a great guy to deal with and was patient with all the questions I had. I’ll let you know how it shoots after the weekend.

I have a vortex viper 4-16 that is hiding in my closet. I think that is going on it.

Very nice looking pistol you have there! Can't wait to hear the range report on it. It is a work of beauty!

Mike built it, it'll shoot! I have a couple barrels with that contour. I like it.

I will back what Aaron says. I have several guns built by Mike ranging from 20 Vartarg to 7saum. All shoot under 1/2” @100. I have another in process now and will be sending components for another soon.
That is a great looking XP I’m Sure you will be very happy with it. Looking forward to see ho w it shoots.
