Added Another Kimber

to the stables. For years I have wanted a Kimber K22 and particular the Hunter Silhouette model. Back when some of the LGS around me were closing them out I would tell myself I should by one, but never did. Finally, I did.............18yrs. later.
This is the HS model that was put in the Kimber K22 Varmint stock and is exactly what I was looking for. I got the original HS stock with it, but it will live in the Varmint stock for ever.
It was more accurate than I could have hoped for with several brands of ammo. I don't do high velocity so the fasted round I fire is the Norma Tac 22. Subsonics are what I mainly shoot and hunt with and this rifle loves the RWS Subsonics..........perfect because they are my favorite rimfire round.
The pictures aren't to good as my time was limited, but this is what it looks like.

Sweet!

Nice find! You lucked out finding that one.

I had a sweet Clackamas Kimber M82 in 22 K-Hornet that I sold in a moment of weakness. Sure wish I still had that rifle!

Give yours a good home, but if she acts up, she has a forever home here.

Thanks guys.

Rick,
When those Oregon Kimbers came out I thought they were the nicests rimfires ever made. At the time I was into Kleingunther rimfires so I didn't purchase any. Dumb.
I have to congratulate you on furnishing a home for wayward child. What a fine endeavor.
