    Press release:

    Yonkers, New York, January 8, 2007 – Kimber® has introduced the Model 8400â„¢ Caprivi, a spectacular rifle designed for hunting Africa’s dangerous game. The Caprivi Strip, from which the rifle takes its name, is a piece of wild Africa known for abundant wildlife; a place as rugged as it is beautiful.

    The AA French walnut stock with hand-rubbed oil finish, ebony forend tip, 24-lpi wrap checkering and pancake cheekpiece set the Capriviâ„¢ well above all other production rifles. A barrel band swivel stud, Howell-style rear swivel stud and three-leaf rear express sight speaks to the rifle’s true purpose.

    The heart of a rifle is the action, and the Caprivi does not disappoint. The Mauser claw extractor ensures positive feeding and extraction regardless of hunting conditions. The safety is a classic, three-position wing. The match grade barrel, chamber and trigger ensure accuracy. Finally, four .375 H&H cartridges ride in the magazine.

    The Caprivi is certain to be an instant classic. Suggested retail price is $3,196. Like other Kimber rifles, the Caprivi is available from over 2,000 Kimber Master Dealers across America.
