    G'Day Fella's,

    Thought about this the other day but have been a bit busy so......
    I have only owned one of the new Kimber's, for a bit over a year but I'm very happy with all aspects of them!!!
    Here is an 84L Montana, in .25-06.

    Thats a kind of vote of confidence, in the Kimber product!
    From L to R we have; .223, .25-06, 7-08, 280AI and a .308Win

    Oops, could a some one relocate this to "Bolt Action Rifles" please???
    Thank You (Maverick?) for that!!!

    Doh!

    Bet that 280 AI gives you a touch up in such a light rifle

      G'Day Fella's,

      CE, they are all surprisingly pleasant to shoot off the bench!
      A combination of the stock design and construction along with really good recoil pad!!!

      Doh!

        The barrel has only 3 x short flutes, and they use an Aluminium trigger guard on this particular model

      Nice collection Homer, the assent is certainly interesting.
      I take it the Kimbers are cone breached as per the model 70's?

      Thinking back a bit, were the early Kimber rifles built on Swedish M96 Actions?

      Thanks,
