Kimber 82 Government .22lr

I need a bolt action .22lr...who am I kidding don't need one just want one. Had a good bolt gun that was stolen back in 73'. Realized the other day didn't have a .22 bolt gun.

Asking here first.
Probably a long shot, anyone own one? I found several on Gunbroker the story I found there says like 12,000 of these rifles were bought by our government to be used as training rifles. Most were never used and sold off thru the CMP, the catch is some moron put a razor scratch down the wood stock of almost every one of them. Government paid $1,300 each for them. Most are in the 550-600 range. I feel the scratch can be fixed. I don't really like the look of the stock, kind of blocky. I was wondering how accurate they are. Any thoughts, feedback?

Sample of Kimber 82 Government

Hope this link works. Several have scratches of varying degrees, this was one of the worst examples I found.
Check out the pics. Rifle comes with really big what I call match "peep" competition sights.

Thanks. I found a bunch for sale on Gunbroker, I just wondered if anyone else had bought one and what they thought about it. Or if there was something about them I should know.

I like shotguns to, I want a Ethos in Silver with 26" barrel, expensive but I love the way they look and feel in your hands.

I got lucky last year and got one fr a gunshow. Didnt have the sights on it, and luckily no razor scratch either. Had $599 on the tag, but it was 3pm on Sunday, background hotline had been down all day, and he hadnt sold a thing. I traded an XDS and $20 for it. Ive only shot about 200rds thru it, but I like it. First time, when I put the scope on paper at about 60 feet, I almost got 3 shots in the same hole. 100 yards is decent, couple inches I guess. I need to figure out what it likes, and certainly have more practice with it.

Thanks for the input. Decided probably won't buy one unless I find one in person for inspection. Nice score from the gun show.
