    G'day,

    I own a Kimber Montana 300WSM with a Swarovski Z6i 1.7-10x42 on it. Pleasure to lug around all day hardly notice its there. Accuracy is outstanding for an out of the box rifle. Feed my Barnes TTSX 168gr hits deer like they have been struck by lightning

    Four years ago, I bought a new .308 Kimber Model 84 (not Montana) and it has been returned to Younkers three times for repair. First, one of the pillars was not at a 90 degree angle; then a burr was found in the bore near muzzle. They replaced barrel and stock. Then with rounds in the magazine, the floorplate would drop open and shells spill on ground with first shot. They fixed that, dunno how. Now have about 200 rounds thru it and it coppers up badly. I like the feel of this light little rifle, so still have it. The walnut stock is beautifully figured. But. . .would I buy another? NO WAY
