Kimber Rifles & Shotguns | Kimber Firearms
Kimber was founded in 1979 in Oregon, USA by Jack and Greg Warne under the name of “Kimber in Oregon”. The reputation of the company grew very fast with the development of the .22 caliber rifles. The most popular Kimber guns are without any doubt the pistols, but they have some good rifles like the 17, 22, and 84M or the 8400 WSM. The company is currently considering expanding the manufacturing capacity. The pistols produced by the company are sold to SWAT, LAPD as well as the US Marine Forces.
All of the Kimber rifles sold come with a match grade barrels and chambers and are manufactured from 0 in the Kimber factory. The vast majority of the rifles produced feature both pillar and glass bedding in order to improve accuracy and strength. Match grade triggers break clean at 3.5-4 pounds. In its history there were a couple of Kimber shotguns, like the Valier Grade II which was a very light lively and properly scaled firearm for bird hunting that had a 20 gauge with a 26 inch barrel. The Valier II had double triggers, fixed IC/M chokes and an English stock with a generous 14.75 inch length of pull to a 24 lines-per-inch hand-checkered butt. Barrels join and lock into the receiver in the proven chopper lump system.
The product family of Kimber hunting rifles includes the following centerfire rifles: Model 84M, Model 84L, Model 8400, Specialty Rifles and Tactical. As with Kimber pistols, all work is done inside the Kimber factory-the only way to ensure quality. Kimber rifles all feature a positive 3-position wing safety with serrated lever, a very innovative design. The Kimber rifle model 84L has a weight of 6 pounds and 2 ounces. The barrel is 24 inches long in order to offer maximum velocity. It has a full-length Mauser claw extractor for total control of round feeding and extraction. The model is available in .25-06 Rem, .30-06 Spfd and .270 Win. Their list of rimfires is much known, here are just a few relevant examples: Gold Match II, Rimfire, Super Carry, Raptor II and the Aegis II. Quality is guaranteed to all models as Kimber is the largest 1911 pistol manufacturer in the world.
From the Kimber shotguns products that were manufactured in the past, there is also the Augusta Skeet Shotgun, which was produced in Brescia, Italy for the Kimber Company. Its shallow profile and slim lines are renowned for beauty and bring the practical advantages of light weight and strength. Quite naturally, this action design was the starting point of the Kimber Augusta. A true Kimber shotgun, the Augusta is a product of a long-established guild environment. Craftsmen with decades of experience may labor over several different famous shotgun brands in the same week.
Choosing the best Kimber gun is a very hard thing to do as there are many 1911 pistols to choose from and a few rifles that changed the history of hunting guns. The CDP series of 1911 pistols has to be the best in the opinion of many gun reviewers. Some of the standard features include low profile three dot night sights and a Carry Bevel treatment that rounds and blends edges so they cannot snag on clothing or holsters. These pistols are chambered in the very powerful .45 ACP, considered by many as the best cartridge developed by the law enforcement.
