Here is my 82C. While not as flashy as some, it looks better than most factory guns of today.

Well, not exactly but this is what Jack Warne used to make before be started Kimber. There is a lot of Kimber bloodlines in this lot.
From the top Sportco 63a, Sportco Clubman, Clubmaster x 2 and a Sportco 66d.

Welcome Melo, that is one strange egg. It is an early SA action from 1982 or 3 (I have #600) that should be a B action but it looks like it has an A bolt handle. Also, that it is not a Superamerica stock.

pretty confused now...anyway! I'll try to sell this rifle to somebody in the USA. Nobody in Germany is interested in this gun and it is too hard to find spare parts and accessories for this rifle here in Germany.

Purchased from original owner who bought the rifle from a Kimber master dealer in Oklahoma circa late '80's. Allegedly 1 of 2 made (at least at that point in time). Wish I had better provenance on the rifle, matching box and paper work may be available, but the original owner has yet to locate, and I'm not sure he will.

I'd give my eye teeth for one with a Myrtlewood stock, you would't have a second one would you?

Nope. But what made us think this was a custom job is the grip cap screws, which were always timed horizontally. I've got a couple recently to post including a LeRoy custom with the same screw configuration, which I prefer.

I remain sceptical that all K of O rifles left the factory with grip cap screws horizontally timed during the Warne's tenure. I have seen this written and talked about before, but to this point, I have never seen factory documentation confirming this. I have a number of Kimber of Oregon rifles I am quite certain are factory original, including all of the Custom Matches shown earlier in the thread, with vertically timed grip cap screws. It would be very helpful if someone could shed more light on this.

I would be pretty reluctant to base a decision on whether or not a stock is a factory original because of the timing of the skeleton gripcap screws. We're only talking about a 1/4 turn of a wood screw which could be done by anyone with a properly fitting screwdriver either during manufacture or after. One of the more important rules of collecting KoO rifles is that there are no hard and fast rules.

Hi Melo, here are the pix I promised. It is a real Superamerica, but what makes it unusual is the lack of a forend tip. It was always an option, but you rarely see one without it.
