Re: Advice please - Kimber Rifles
Four years ago, I bought a Younkers made Kimber Model 84, .308. I have returned it to the factory 3 times. First, one piller was not perfectly straight and lining up the action screw was near impossible. They put a new stock on it. Then when I shot it with the magazine loaded up, the floorplate would open on first shot and rounds fell out. Also the firing pin did not always detonate the primer. They repaired both problems. Accuracy was poor and an awful lot of blue came out on patches. Had a gunsmith borescope it and he found a burr in the bore about an inch below the muzzle. They installed a new barrel. I still have the gun, have shot one deer with it, but would not buy another Kimber.
