Hello, CP, how do you do?
I’ve always been a fan of the old-school Remington XP-100 long range pistol, essentially a bolt-action 40X short action rifle in a handgun chassis. Out of production for a generation, Thompson-Center and others have long since picked up the torch and run with it.
Well, Remington finally wised up and came out with what they are calling their M700 Chassis Pistol last week.
Using a short-action Remington 700 system, the Chassis Pistol is advertised by the New York-based company as an accurate and compact handgun for use on the range or in a hunting environment. Offered (initially) in .300 Blackout, .223 Remington and .308 Winchester, the CP in its longest version is just 21.75-inches overall. Featuring 10.5-inch barrels in its .300 AAC and .223 formats, the pistol runs a 12.5-inch barrel in the .308 version.
