Kimber information on what might be a rare gun ?

My hunting buddy has a Kimber 22 LR serial # 1600 with a factory letter from Kimber ( to a Gordon Nygren ) that states it is the FIRST Kimber produced with a stock made by Kimber. It has been fired but like new in original box with target, letter and extra stock. I have been trying for weeks to get through to Kimber to find out if they would be interested in this gun for their museum but you are put on hold forever and can never get to talk to a human being !! Does anyone out there know anything about this gun and who Gordon Nygren might have been and why he got the first gun Kimber made with their own stocK ?? Just curious !!

Marshall....I don't post personal gun pictures on KT or any site, for any reason. Never have/never will. Taking IP risk is for those that choose to do so, I don't. If you have a problem with that, choose a orifice. End of subject.

Welcome from Northeast, Pa.
Sorry, I can't answer your question. You might want to look to contact a gun magazine like Guns N Ammo. They have a section where you can ask questions about guns and what they are worth.
