Thankful for all of our customers.

Some of the 2018 builds. This is about 1/4 of the builds that have rolled through. Grabbed some of what I thought were the better pics off my phone. Just trying to liven up the forum a touch popcorn

Nice looking XPs Chris. Thanks for sharing them with us. I hope some of the owners will chime in on some of their field testing with them.

Awesome pistols! Curious to know - what do you think the future availability of XP actions/donor guns is?

Rear grip won’t be a problem with 700 and model 7 actions and their clones.

Center grip....there are still plenty floating around

How did you get the colors to pop like that on the red & black laminate? For the price you can't beat Norm's stocks.

Most want to get the quick finish and spray on car clear coat or Polly. That does nothing for the color.

Hand rubbed oil. About 20 coats. Steal wool between coats.

Thanks.
I wasn't sure if anything you built this year presented a specific design criteria of technical hurdle that required some out of the box thinking to overcome.

I know in my line of work (much different than gunsmithing) it is the odd ball problems that require a unique fix that become memorable.

The bolt rigs are really just precision machine work.

The “art” comes in the other guns

Chris you do some mighty fine work. I'm more of a contender guy but I have to admit I see several of the xp's that very much interest me. Thanks for the post and pics.
