    Kimber mountain accent.

    I've just decided I need one in .308.
    I've never bought a Kimber before, who is the best to buy one off price wise? Who imports them?

    Anyone got one? What do you think of it?

    NZ Asia will supply your favourite gun shop.

    They have some 308s coming soon.

    The standard Montana is probably a better bet, price wise, not that much difference in weight.

    Just get a Montana, its not worth another 1K. They are imported by New Zealand Asia here in Nelson. No stock in NZ at the moment but another shipment is not far away.
    Give James a call at Stirling Sports Richmond (03) 544 8290, he will be able to help you out.
