Does anyone do here in the LA area have the skill & tools to remove & help install a new barrel on a XP-100 action ???? I want to turn it into a single shot Tac.20 . My OLL will not take the pressure that a bolt action can . Its just that a 14" .223 is LOUD as all get up and annoying . Andy

I also have an XP 100 in .223,but talk about noise....ever shoot a Ruger Mini 14. Talk about a flame thrower. Nobody even looked when I ran a box through my XP,but I had people walk over to see what was throwing all the fire shooting the Mini.

My shooting partner used a Contender in .223 with a 10" barrel. Not only did it belch flame I had to wear ear plugs and e-muffs to spot for him.

I have an Encore with a 15" 223 barrel and never noticed much from it. If you want loud try a 25-06 barrel. T/C told me that is one of the worst ones.

Someone want to correct me but we are in the rifle section and everyone here is talking about barrels less then 16" which would be a felony correct?

I moved it sorry. I didn't catch the forum earlier.
