Kimber of Oregon opinions

Hey guys and gals I'm new to the form and looking for opinions on Kimber of Oregon rifles. A couple of years ago I had an opportunity to purchase 7 Oregon rifles from an older gentleman. The price he wanted for all 7 was about half what the Blue Book of Gun Values had them valued at so I bought them. All of them are small calibers model 82 and 84 .17 k hornet, .17 machIV, .22 lr, .22mag, .22 hornet, .223, and 25-20. I also got ammo and loading dies for all the none rimfire calibers.
Since buying these rifles I have searched high and low trying to obtain a happy medium on respect for the Oregon rifles. Online reviews and online auctions lend me to believe its a love hate thing with the Oregon rifles.
Before joining this forum I searched as best as I could for comments on Oregon rifles, and only found a few. I'm assuming most on this forum are as I, very respectful of the Kimber brand, so tell me what you think.

Thank you

I'd like to tell you that you'll get a lot of good info from our rifle guys, but truth be told, there aren't many. Let's see what happens.

I agree with Steve, mostly a pistol crowd but there are a few Kimber rifle owners that are knowledgeable.
I only dream of owning a Kimber rifle sadly don't know a lot about them. I don't think I have heard very many bad things about them.
