Existing Kimber owner but new to this site

glad I found this site...from the Ft. Worth area and on my 2nd Kimber Montana (original was a 7mm-08, the new one is a 308). The latest is a recently purchased gun (Aug 2015) that I use as a back-up gun for elk hunting in CO and as a primary whitetail gun in TX.

Currently (unfortunately) struggling with accuracy issues on my newest gun but thank goodness for their M.O.A. guarantee...i just sent the 308 back to them for investigation since I couldn't achieve < 1 M.O.A. at 100 yards with any of eight different factory loads (I got close with several but 'no cigar' as they say). Anyway, this will be my first experience with Kimber Customer Service so I'm optimistically looking forward to what they do next.

Welcome to the site from Tennessee! Don't have a Kimber rifle myself and have not had to use customer service but almost all reports here say they are first class.

Welcome to Kimberland. Please post photos of your guns. We can only survive if we get enough photos of Kimbers. Our hunger is insatiable.

Welcome also from Ohio. Also personally I had first rate service from Kimber from initial phone calls to receiving it back so I would be optimistic.

Cool Hey Here!! (It's a Southern Thing!!!)

Welcome to Kimber Talk from beautiful downtown Monroe, Georgia!!!

As mentioned above, we do enjoy pictures. And once you get your Kimber Montana back from Customer Service, be sure to send us a range report. too.

We get VERY few complaints directed at the Kimber Customer Service Department. The vast majority of folks that send their Kimber products back to the factory receive back a pistol or rifle that performs up to and beyond the customer's expectations. I'm pretty sure that you will be one of those folks and that your Montana will be a real shooter when you get it back. Let us know how it works out. Looking forward to it!!
