New Kimber Rifle Is Smallest & Lightest .30-06 Sporter Ever Offered

Yonkers, New York, February 26, 2010 – The new Model 84L™ from Kimber® is the smallest, lightest standard-caliber sporter ever offered. A true hunter’s rifle, it weighs just 6 pounds, 2 ounces - even with a full-length match grade barrel that wrings every bit of velocity out of America’s favorite cartridges. A match grade chamber, pillar bedding and glass bedding work together to ensure accuracy, and the finest raw materials combine with unequaled Kimber quality to build in enough tough to take anything a hunt demands.

The heart of this rifle is the new Model 84L action, sized to minimal dimensions for the .30-06 Spfd. cartridge family. Even then, magazine capacity is a surprising 5 rounds. Standard features include match grade trigger, 3-position wing safety, sculpted steel bottom metal and a free-floated barrel.

The Model 84L Classic™ is available in both .270 Win. and .30-06 Spfd. Stocked in fine walnut with hand-cut 20 lines per inch checkering and a hand-rubbed oil finish, suggested retail price is $1,172.

The Model 84L Classic Select Grade™ is chambered in .25-06 Rem., .270 Win. and .30-06 Spfd. Stocked in elegant French walnut accented with an ebony forend tip, suggested retail price is $1,359. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation took one look and bought the first 475 for this year’s fundraising banquet program, and one respected gun writer has already penned that the Model 84L is “as good as a lightweight rifle can get”.

The Model 84L actually creates a new category of rifle, one blending custom features and styling, true light weight and exceptional performance – just what American hunters have come to expect from Kimber. It took Kimber to get light right.
