Thanks to Brett F. for sharing this.

After 25 years I finally found my unicorn and had the funds to pull the trigger. 1977 Remington XP 100 .221 Fireball with original case! Super excited!

He paid $800. Not bad really when you consider it was his unicorn. Can you put a price on happiness? I think he got a reasonable deal considering the condition and factory case.



  • TechnoTriticale

    Arguably, it was only made in a left-handed version.

    • Sunshine_Shooter

      Good catch.

    • DanGoodShot

      Thats odd. Wounder why??

      • TechnoTriticale

        I was referring to the bolt. A right-handed shoulder arm has the bolt on the right. A right hand hand arm would more optimally have the bolt handle on the left – but in that case, Rem would have needed a left-handed action to base it on.

        • kyphe

          Not really applicable to a single shot pistol configuration. Yes you either need to reach part of your left had over the top to grab the bolt handle or cant your right hand a few degrees anti clockwise or some combination of the two but it is a meaningless consideration. The 100R may be slightly better suited to a lefty with it’s 4 round mag.

        • Archie Montgomery

          This was never intended as a rapid fire arm. Anything even remotely requiring a quick back up shot should be considered more carefully.

  • Evil_Bonsai

    I so wish they still made these. One of the first guns I ever shot was one of these in 7mmBR.

    • jestertoo

      I have one and love it.

  • billyoblivion

    Always wanted one of these.

    • Paul Prochko

      We used them for years in every conceivable configuration of accuracy cartridge….6 br. 7 br. PPC’s TCU’s and on and on. Absolutely capable of tremendous accuracy when properly set up… The factory product was just a starting point for development of super accurate firearms. No self respecting International class Silhouette shootist owned less than two or three of them. They were simply that good. Mid grip custom stock…4 ounce or so custom trigger…and a very good match grade barrel in your choice of cartridges and you were good to go !

  • Tassiebush

    That looks awesome! It burns to a) not own one and b) not be able to use one in the field. Seems like a great concept! A convenient flat shooting varmint whacking package!

  • *quietly goes to local pawn shop in the morning…*

    Pretty sure I saw one of these in good condition for $299 a few months ago.

  • Edeco

    I wish there were more falling block pistols. Break action doesn’t have much romance for me. Bolt action, a little more but not much. Of course judging by EABCO’s and Ruger No 1’s, they’d cost quite a bit and be a lukewarm success at best, and I probably wouldn’t actually buy one. But the important thing is that I would be amused by reading about them and possibly handling or borrowing one.

      If you have not already done so check out the Mauser c77 vid on forgotten weopons

      • Edeco

        I had not, nifty!

  • Hoplopfheil

    Wow. Very pretty. Way more interesting than my unicorn.

    Which is a Star 31pk.

  • 22winmag

    Regardless of the price/value, it’s just another commission for Gunbroker!

  • Steve

    Awesome guns, I’ve shot one a few times, they have amazing balance.

  • Blake

    My cousin has one. He describes it as a “tack driver”.

    Ahhh Remington, look at what you once were, & what you have now become…

  • Bob

    friend had one of these in either .222 or .223 around the early 1990’s
    he used it for prairie dog shooting.
    you could hit a dime with it at 100 yards. COOL gun.

  • Bob

    I believe this was the same action used by Remington in their model 660 made from 1971 thru 1973

  • uisconfruzed

    I shot a friend’s Lone Eagle 7-08.
    I’d love to pick one of these up for a deal.

  • It was $1300….. Apparently the old fart watches youtube videos too.
