Independent tests have shown that Kimber is not only strong in the construction of 1911 models. Also their long guns deliver a high quality and comprehensive variety for the sportive and the hunting shooting. With the KIMBER program hunters and sport shooters can choose between traditional rifles with high quality wooden as well as models with reinforced carbon fiber, synthetic or plywood stocks.
For 2018, KIMBER will be presenting two new precision rifles in calibers .308Win: Advanced Tactical SOC II, Advanced Tactical SRC II and 6.5 Creedmoor with a shooting accuracy of 0.5 MOA.
Both models are equipped with aluminum stocks and are based on the legendary Kimber System 8400 with a long Mauser type extractor for controlled cartridge feed and reliable sleeve extraction, a quiet and easy to operate, horizontal 3-position wing safety catch and a carefully tuned Match Grade trigger, which breaks crystal clear at 2.5 pounds (1,134 g).
The SOC II is equipped with a 22" and the SRC II with a 16" barrel. The new bolt action rifles feature a muzzle thread 5/8-24 for receiving a muzzle brake or suppressor. Both system / barrel assemblies are embedded in a McRees Precision G10 Standard Lightweight Alloy Frame and have a side-hinged stock with an embedded MEL-V tilt indicator. Cheek piece and the butt plate are adjustable in height; as the stock is in length. SOC II and SRC II come with a 1913 MIL-STD mounting rail, bipod mounting and M-LOK side mounts. Both rifles include a stock pocket and the weapon case "Drag Bag" for storage and transport.
All KIMBER bolt action rifles combine the positive features of the Mauser 98 and the Winchester pre 64 system. The non-rotating extractor ensures a controlled supply and reliable extraction of the cartridge case.
The horizontal three-position safety catch works directly on the firing pin and provides security when carrying the loaded weapon. The direct trigger breaks like glass-breaker and is as crucial to precision as the match-grade quality barrel, which undergoes rigorous quality control during production.
The straight buttstock directs the recoil straight into the shoulder and prevents unpleasant movements of the barrel. Pillar and / or glass bedding guarantee a consistently excellent shot precision. Shooters and hunters have a choice of more than 20 models and a caliber range of .223Rem. up to .458Lott.
