    hard to believe but i just got home from the local sporting good store with 2 brand new in the box rem. xr-100 rangemasters in .204 they were 35% off their sale price so i got them for 485 each NIB i don't like the .204 round but the actions make great match rifles, solid bottom and shorter then a 700.
    p.s. i am pretty sure they made a mistake on the price but i asked them twice so whatever.

    Nice score.

    My understanding is Remington has discontinued the XRs. That's too bad as they are/were very nice rifles. I know recently people have bashed Remington pretty bad, but the new ones I bought recently shoot great. You have to get a running start at the X-mark pro triggers, but they are nice and crisp. Makes them feel lighter than they really are.

    In my opinion is that the old Remington triggers are far better than the NEW PRO-X- Triggers. The new triggers were made to compete with Savage Accu-Trigger they really FAILED on this they just made with a heavy pull and forced owners to buy a replacement trigger if they want to do any kind target shooting. Remington is still slidding backwards in Quality!!!!!!!!!!!!! Forceing loyal Remington buyers to go to other brands. It has got to the point the only thing good is the ACTION!!!!!!!!

    I wish remington would put its bare receivers out on the market again. I haven't seen them do that for several years now. Brownell's used to carry them, but not anymore. I think they could rake in some good money if they offered all of their receivers for sale.

    The Xr100s that Willdo bought will have the 40x trigger on them, adjustable from outside, not a Jewel but a decent trigger.

    Here is what I've done with my Remington .223 I bought in 2008. These are three five shot groups fired at 100 yards. The first group is an exceptional accident. The third group is a little better than normal. The second group is a "damn gun" group. And this is with a four to five pound trigger. I would buy another Remington, in this model anyway. This gun consistently beats my Savage LRPV in the same caliber.

    Don't want to start a debate, and these results could be a fluke for Remington. For a factory gun though, I'm impressed with this particular Remington.

    I own 3 204's, 2 are customs and one is a XR-100, the Rem is the most accurate! Can't tell you why, the barrel doesn't clean up as easy as the customs, trigger is set at a nice 2lbs, nowhere as nice as the Jewels on the other 2. It's not typical of what I own, ie custom versus factory, it just is what it is, the most accurate 204R that I own. Picking up 2 of those at that price is like finding money on the ground, my favorite pastime ;D

    Does anyone know the adjustment range on these triggers w/o honing the sears, etc., just using the external adjustment screw?
