Re: Kimber 84m Montana ?

Montana Rifleman,
Did you know your screen name is the name of the company who manufactures the actions for Kimber?
No bones one way or the other, just thought it was ironic!

On a different note, I think the little Montana's are real neat rifles, but their reputation is what led me to build my own on a Rem action, instead of buying one.

    I actualy found out about the Montana Rifle Co shortly after creating my screen name in another shooting forum a while back. Had I known prior, I probably would have chosen another screen name. Until now, I had no idea they were making Kimber actions. The reviews I've read on them have been a little mixed. I personally think the Kimber Montana is overall a very well designed rifle, but... some of them seem to have some issues.

    Yeah, you're right, that is ironic

    Of all the Montana Rifleman actions I've looked at not a one was as nice as it should be.
    They all would require a lot of work to become a nice action. I've always wondered if the foundation(action) of a Kimber might not be the root of the problems.

    Since Montana Rifle Co don't even make their own actions I very much doubt that they make the Kimber actions. I own 2 MRC actions and they are cast by Ruger's Pinetrees Casting division, then assembled & finished by MRC.

    Kimber does have a model called the "Montana" but definitely not made by the Montana Rife Co! A bit of confusion here I fear.

    If I remember correctly they stated they manufacture ALL of their rifle components including barrels, actions, stocks, etc.
