    Kimber Hunter 308

    I was lucky enough to see the first Kimber Hunter rifles to arrive in the country this afternoon.



    The stock seems to be very stiff for a plastic one.



    The colour is a little different but easy to get used too



    It has a detachable magazine



    It is essentially a Montana with a detachable magazine in a cheaper & about 100 grams heavier stock.



    This one weighs 2.450 kgs, 5.64 lbs, the calibres available are, 243, Jaffa & 308 for a RRP of around $1900

    A very nice rifle for the price, they even come with a MOA guarantee

    The colour is not grabbing me.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    For a little more I'd much prefer the Montana.

    They have gone from boring grey to boring tan. They should offer any colour option as long as it is black:-)

    3 in the single stack magazine & the release is pretty recessed, can't see it being that easy to accidentally release ?

    My one is going to be boring black before long, as the grey is wearing/getting chipped off. Cool rifle though.

    The Hunter with its solid plastic stock won't have that problem.

    Interesting about the weight. They are advertised as being 6.5lb. Thats quite a bit heavier than the one you weighed Greg.
    I also see that they are made in .257R and 6.5 creedmore. I wonder if we will see those here?

    The Internet weight is wrong for some reason or another, its good like that from time to time.....

    I guess we will get the Creedmoor here in the next shipment maybe ?

    This shipment is basically all sold IIRC.
