What exactly do you want to know? The link from the 2010 auction is pretty complete looks like to me.
Even enlarged the pics are no help....

the auction says Kimber Model 82 Super Continental Bolt Action Rifle ... i see no marking on this gun to indicate that... and i don't see that in the blue book.. is that indeed what this gun is.. the serial number is long as if its part of the regular run.. a lot of the rare guns have a short number.. cheers

We can't tell from the pictures you posted or at least I can't get them to enlarge? But it should have stamped on the barrel "Kimber Model 82" and may also have Super Continental not sure about that part, should also have caliber and Kimber of Oregon, Clackamas Oregon stamped on barrel.
Need better up close pics.

Well, looks like it is stamped like I thought. Kimber M82 Cal. .22lr Clackamas Or. and serial number. I believe a lot of older Kimber records were lost in a fire. But if you call customer service and give them the serial number you may get information when the rifle was made?

I don't know what other information you want to know? I think the sale link you posted is accurate and contains about all the information that is available. I've not seen very many with the full wood stock. Being that it is a Clack made rifle it is desirable and may be collectable to certain people.

That sounds like a reasonable starting point to me. A few years ago I paid a good amount more than $1,250 for a M82, that was not a Clack rifle.
My advice is take some better, high resolution photo's to go with your GunBroker ad.

Well the OP only has 8 so he can increase that easy enough if he wants to.

I said 20 because I think that's the magic number over on 1911Addicts and it's the same software and I assume same rules.

Well we all know the OP needs to make more posts and allow us to get to know him better before anyone would purchase from him. Cause we are more like family than a forum.

Well, not joining in is YOUR CHOICE! If you haven't noticed almost all of KT members love and appreciate all types of firearms, new, old, WWI, WWII, etc.

If you don't mind me asking how did you end up with a loan Kimber rifle?

Let us know if you list it on GunBroker!
