    Mark Hampton is supposed to have one at the 1000 yard MOA match in two weeks. I'm looking forward to looking it over

    As much as i love it and glad they went with a usable grip location i just dont see them selling many. Theres a reason remington quit selling the XP and all the other pistols fade out over time.

    Always enjoy hearing about new stuff even if it’s not something that catches my eye. Thanks for sharing the info. I think this one fits into the “I don’t want one but I hope my buddy buys one” bucket.

    I see this addition to their line as no different from most all other firearm manufacturers. We have "Core" product and should always certainly have all the pipeline can take (maybe a little more). They are the products shops (and manufacturers) make their living from but it is vitally important that there be things in your lineup that make you go "hmmm" or even "Cool" or, as many of our LR handgun shooting friends may say "OMG!".
    Nosler isn't going to sell one to everyone and they may not be in their product line forever (really will not). Neither should have been their goal when announcing this product. The XP may be gone from production but it is long from forgotten. Same for the Savage Stiker. The TC Contender is still out there and actually going strong. Even though we don't see and read about shooter's exploits with these guns they are out there and someone will ALWAYS want one.

    Remington sells to the mass market and not to what shooters want.

    Do they make F class, benchrest, long range tactical guns, hunting handguns. NO

    There is a market for these guns and others and Nosler is willing to step up to the challenge.

    The link says the calibers down at the bottom. Some nice ones and nothing unrealistic like a 300wsm

    Isn't the bolt handle on the "wrong" side for rh shooters? I have zero xperience with this type of pistols so I had to ask....

    This Lefty would like one for just that reason. Now the other 90% of shooters know how we feel

    For me it is. I have two left bolt Annie pistols and I'm right handed. Seems a lot more comfortable.

    Another center grip XP-100 fan here and I think this Nosler is a sexy handgun. Actually buy one? Doubtful. Maybe if the bolt were on the other side...

    Unless you are doing some fast shooting, is a left bolt really necessary?

    One of the few times in life I'm lucky to be a lefty.

    Quit crying and shoot!

    For any kind of hunting I would like more than a single shot.
    Hmm left bolt and mag..... Sounds like a Savage striker.

    I am right handed, have shot a few rounds through pistols and I prefer the bolt on the right side. You can keep your left on the rear bag and run the bolt. My strikers have gone down the road because of this. Besides the strikers are left bolt but still right port so not a huge advantage
