    Fuck thats cool apart from the gay camo stock & yes a flutted Kimber barrel but me thinks thats looks like the ticket for a new mountain walking stick. Oh wait NZ Asia will be bringing em in so I'll have plenty of time to save me pingas

    Surely there must be a way of bypassing them, have heard of people bringing in their own HSprecision

    They might bring in a few ( hopefully ) but when I saked em about getting a Montana in 338 Fed I was told it would be only by special order & have to wait a few months
    I would of thought that they could include half a dozen in their order, I reckon they would sell quite well with the correct marketing.

    When I first thought about getting a 338 a couple of years ago & asked at my local HnF'ing the boss man thought I was pulling his tit & I had to pull out a ammo catalog to show him the 338 Fed was real

    I've owned a few montanas, and the impression I've got from them was that during a fall, you would clean snap one of those barrels in half. A fluted one I imagine would be worse? Don't get me wrong, I love the montana and it is my go-to rifle but how light is too light?

    Iv been talking to them about a standard montana in 280ai for a couple of years, still nothing,not all their fault though.
    From what I can gather the new model has same contour barrel as the standard but fluted,will probly be in the $3k+ NZ reigion.If they have ironed out all the old faults it would well worth a look.

    I see they have listed these on their website now & at least they come in a decent caliber fuck at 2g US I would hate to think what they'll be here
