I've always wanted a Barrett M82 but I think I'd probably get more enjoyment out of something like the SR21.I might actually be able to afford one sometime over the next 5 years too.
I wonder if the Kimber rifle is going to be built with MIM bolts and receivers. Just sayin'...
Heh, my thoughts exactly. Is Gunsmith Bob interested because people will need a smith to get the Kimber to run?
Interesting that the ONLY prices he gave were for the rifle... :-)
Actually, while I'm not the world's biggest fan of Kimber's pistols, their rifles are no joke.And no, Weer'd, Gunsmith Bob might be interested because he's been getting more into precision rifles, building sweet blueprinted 700s down there at TAC lately, and I thought he might like to see some of the new guns on the market.
Thanks for the shout out. If all goes well the next few weeks, there are about to be some drawings turned into steel. It may get interesting. Gunsmith Bob
I have an old Kimber-built M96 Swedish Mauser that is an absolute tack driver and a sweet rifle on the trigger to boot. Best $300 I ever spent.I'm building an F-Class TR precision rifle on a J. Allen Enterprises stock. They go to the SHOT show and their stocks for the M1A and R700 actions are to drool over. I'm 11 months into my wait. By the time I'm finished, it will have taken 18-20 months to build my 1000 yard rifle.
...not the world's biggest fan of Kimber's pistols, their rifles are no joke.I think that's under the heading of 'damning with faint praise'. Or something.
I've never shot a Kimber rifle that wasn't the bomb-diggety. If you have one that you don't care for, please contact me via Tam. As for their handguns? They kicked off the whole concept of "out-of-the-box custom 1911s". Kimber is the perfect example of being a victim of one's own success.
