Kimber has upped its game with the new Kimber Tactical II SOC (Special Operations Capable) Rifle. It features a proprietary aluminum side-folding stock with integral 1913 MIL-STD rail, along with a second rail for secure attachment of optics and accessories.

The New Kimber Model 8400 Advanced Tactical SOC (Special Operations Capable) rifle is chambered in .308 Win. and .300 Win. Mag. and the gun ships with a 5-round
detachable magazine for fast reloading, with additional 5 and 10-round magazines available
as accessories.

It features a proprietary aluminum side-folding stock with integral 1913 MIL-STD rail, along with a second rail for secure attachment of optics and accessories.

The top rail has 20 MOA elevation built in to maximize the adjustment range of high-magnification optics.

For precision shooting in any position, the stock is adjustable for both comb height and length of pull, and even has an adjustable rear monopod for additional stability when used in conjunction with a bipod mounted to the lower forend rail.

To ensure the rifle’s accuracy lives up to its outstanding looks (my opinion) Kimber pointed out the barrel and chamber are machined to match grade tolerances.

Barrels are made from stainless steel blanks and are fitted with a SureFire muzzle brake/suppressor adapter.

The Model 8400 action incorporates a full-length Mauser claw extractor for true controlled feeding and extraction. It also has a 3-position wing safety that is positive, quiet and fast. The match grade trigger is carefully tuned to break clean at 3-3.5 pounds right outta the box.

I think for the price it should ship with a case and Kimber got that part right, too. The Model 8400 Advanced Tactical SOC ships in a waterproof hard case suitable for both storage and deployment. Suggested retail price is $4,099. Learn more at Kimber.
