Protective glove for shooting Remington XP-100


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


New member here.
I have a Remington XP-100 in 7mm BR. It has the mid-grip frame, and I shoot it in silhouette competition. My problem with the gun is that the recoil rocks the grip backwards so that it bashes my hand at the base of the thumb and at the side of my wrist.
I'm interested in finding a glove or similar device to use when shooting the gun that will protect these areas. I'm thinking of taking a leather glove and just cutting the fingers off at the knuckle (the glove's fingers, not mine). But this could result in the stitching unravelling and the glove just coming apart.
Any ideas?
Thanks!

Try bicycling gloves. Fingerless and available padded or not. That's what I used when I got into XP's 30 years ago. I only used them a short time and soon got used to the recoil. Them center grip guns are a different animal and take some getting used to! The 7mm-BR isn't a kicker so I'd guess it's due to how much you shoot in a session? If you are using a factory plastic stock , the best thing you can do is start shopping for a different one that fits better!

Harbinger weight lifting gloves with the wrist wrap are what I use. They have padding in the places you describe and support your wrist effectively.



New ones don't come with paint on them

Is this a model you think would work well? I did not see an all black glove available.

My "new" ones have foam padding in the web(?) between the thumb and forefinger and look like these:

Try them on if you can, they run "big". I don't like the "new" ones as well as the ones in my picture as to fit and finish, but they are more "padded".

A lot of folks working with Law Enforcement and tactical stuff have padded gloves, some with exposed finger tips. Might have to search around, but I have seen them.

I bought the gloves shown in my photo. I used them today to shoot my XP-100. The glove protected my hand and wrist just like I hoped it would. I just wish the palm was not padded, because it makes it more difficult to get a good reach to the trigger. But then, the gloves were designed for weight lifting, where padding makes sense.
Thanks again for the tip.
Andy
