The Kimber Model 84L™ represents a new category of rifle with the perfect combination of weight and elegance. Weighing only 6 pounds, 2 ounces, it offers the custom and performance features expected from Kimber at a production rifle price.
The “L” in Model 84L could stand for “long”; as in long action. The Classic Select Grade is available in .25-06 Rem., .270 Win. and .30-06 Spfd and carries a 24-inch match-grade barrel to wrings every bit of velocity and accuracy out of America’s favorite cartridges. The Model 84L does not compromise accuracy or velocity to save weight.
The Model 84L action follows the minimal dimensions of the Model 84M, but is slightly lengthened for standard calibers. Both Classic and Classic Select Grade models hold five rounds in the magazine plus one in the chamber. The Model 84L features a full-length Mauser claw extractor for true controlled-round feeding and extraction.
The most dependable system ever developed, it prevents the double-feeding and jamming of common push-feed actions. A properly shaped classic French walnut stock with 1-inch Pachmayr Decelerator pad diminishes felt recoil. Other features of the top-of-the-line model include an ebony forend tip and hand-cut checkering that establishes a new production rifle standard. A combination of both pillar and glass bedding stand up to the tough of the hunt.
The match-grade trigger breaks crisp and sharp at 3.5-4 pounds, just right to make the shot of a lifetime. The floorplate release is inside the trigger bow to prevent accidental opening. All of this attention to detail is just what you’d expect from America’s premier gunmaker and the Kimber 84L does not disappoint.
