Kimber Model 82 Government

Iíve done a little research but thereís not much information on this rifle. Could anyone provide information? Maybe a date of manufacture, still in production, how many were made and anything else that might be important .. thanks

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois BuLLeTPr00F. That's an interesting Model 82 you have there.

How about stopping by our "New Member Introduction" sub forum and introducing yourself to the membership?

Bulletproof, welcome to the site.

Made in Oregon
The 82 is no longer being made. I think they made a large number of them. Made for some kind of low cost training rifle. Became part of the Civilian Marksmanship Program. Many have an ugly razor scratch on the otherwise beautiful wood stock. You can find them sometimes on GunBroker, prices vary, be careful some have been modified and don't always include the original target sights. I've never seen an 82 in person, from the pics I don't like the metal groove/track in the stock. Most reports I've read report they are pretty accurate. I have looked at them online several times and thought about buying but never got that feeling. The prices on most were more than I thought they were worth and more than I was willing to pay. I saw 4 on GunBroker right now with prices from $500 to $1,100 bucks, various conditions I think all auctions had a reserve.
Seems like one or two members own a 82 maybe someone can shed more light on this rifle.

Welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois. I had not done much looking into the Model 82, though was pretty certain they were no longer in production. Thanks for sharing the photo's, shame the gov groups always have to spray-paint nice Walnut stocks.

Link to Farlyjj1's excellent video "Shooting The Kimber Model 82 Government":


The production quality of this video is excellent as its author displays his new out of the box Kimber 82G. He also has a right to the point analysis of several ammunition types that concludes with what produces optimal results for paper target shooting.
