A Press Release statement can be read below from Kimber to further cement your decision in picking one of these up if you have not already decided to do so:
KIMBER’S TRADITIONAL BIG-GAME RIFLES offer an unequaled combination of features, elegance and performance. All actions have minimal dimensions for the cartridges they chamber, permitting a trim overall profile that reduces weight by as much as two pounds.
All traditional rifles include critical design features that ensure performance and dependability. Stocks are borne of fine walnut and then checkered and finished by hand. The elegant pillar and glass bedded sporter stock is carefully shaped and dimensioned from fine walnut for both recoil control and quick pointability. This properly dimensioned classic stock and recoil-absorbing 1-inch Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad diminish felt recoil. The Kimber-designed straight comb stock slides back into the shoulder, not up into the cheekbone.
A sculpted steel bottom metal has a floorplate release inside the trigger bow that prevents accidental opening. The Classic Kimber design and Model 84 performance features are mounted in a beautiful hand checkered Claro Walnut Stock. In addition to the classic design features, this limited-edition release rifle features a Kimpro II black receiver with Stainless barrel, specialized serial number sequence, with “Limited Edition 1 of 1,000” engraved on the trap door. Just as hunting is more than a sport, a Kimber traditional rifle is more than just a rifle.
Once again, the MSRP is $1,128 for the Kimber Classic Rifle, production will be limited to 1,000 rifles being made, and they should be delivered to dealers sometime in August. So the question remains, what do you think? Would you be willing to pick one of these up and go hunting with it this fall? Or would it be a safe queen or mantlepiece above your fireplace?
