OK, I'll play. This is an S series, vintage 1981, and the predecessor to the Superamerica. The consensus is out of 535, this one is in the top three(and we know where the other two are). This rifle has alot more "A" than "T", but I can't remember the last time I saw a 28 year old butt this nice.

Early 82A Super America, with sights and ebony tip and a non shadowline cheek piece. This stock has figure from the Butt to the tip. This rifle is also unfired. Hambone your it, I still have my Grand finale left, what you got?

I hope this isn't getting boring, but here are pix of my last two you guys haven't seen yet. Although not as flashy as the rest, here goes. On top is an early custom classic, which I have actually shot!; a great trigger under a pound and a nice piece of wood. Below that is a Cascade Kimberkook was nice enough to sell me last year. It is NIB. Both these rifles have grooved receivers and sport early Kimber rings and of course Leupolds. This is all I have for now, although I am trying to reel in a real nice Custom Cascade. Maybe now we can see the grand finale.

I'm going to take a flyer here, based on the fact that hard and fast Kimber rules don't exist, and state that your gun might actually be a Custom Classic Deluxe. The only difference between it and mine, which has the exact same options, is the serial# on mine which has a CCD prefix and we know that Kimber serial #'s can be "creative."
That Howards Feed and Wax really perks up the stocks.

Kimber 82B 10 Anniversary 1 of 200 in Matte finish, NIB. This rifle extremely rarer than your average 10th Annviversary in that it is Matte finished, from what Im told this is an add in the book, I also have the Kimber Matte lever rings that were an option with the rifle, also NIB. You'll also notice the french walnut is stained mildly to a darker color than the blond, and of course this rifle is serial number 6 of 200. Very few of these have been seen, I've talked to several high end collectors that have never even seen one they all agree on the fact that of the 200 only a few were matte finished. One perticular collector I talked to was a master Dealer he has over 70 guns in his personal collection, he has never seen one. He did look back at his literature and found no mention of it on any of his old ordering forms, catologs, or any other docs he received from kimber.

As Promised

Here are some pics of my Kimber Custom Cascade in 223 and my Kimber Super America 10th Anniversary Editon in 22LR. My 10th Anniversary is 196 of 200 and is Matte finished.

New 82G

This is mine - one picture with the original sights and one with a borrowed Redfield 3200, 24X.

I shot a 3/8" group at 50 yards with the original sights; next week-end I'll see what I can do with a scope.





These are a couple of targets, using the original sights. The wind was really eratic - the first group was with little wind, and the second was with lots of wind. I'll blame the horizontal stringing on the wind, as the facts that I'd never used this kind of sights before and I could barely make out the red dot just coudn't have entered into the equation.

A little diversion from the SG bidding....

This is one of the rarest Kimbers, the Custom Cascade. 34 were made in 1984. I was able to pry this one loose from famed Kimber collector Robert Moseley of Texas. It is NIB and also sports a Kimber 4X scope and rings.

Here we have a 10th anniversary limited edition (200) that was produced in 1989 to commemorate ten years of the 82. It is identifiable by the little 10 and star on the rear sight ramp. It also featured french walnut and for some reason is heavier than other superamericas. This one is NIB and has the prerequsite quick detach Kimber rings and a 2-7 Leupold RF.

These are pix of my new S series that kimberkook has dubbed the "missing link", perhaps a bridge between it and the superamericas. What we do know(thanks, Sage) was that a few (12) of these were made in 1983. Although stamped S series, it has a B action, an early SA stock, and doesn't have a forend tip, ( always an option). It has first generation Kimber rings and the Kimber 4x scope. An interesting note, it is NIB and the box has a COD amount collected from George's Gun Shack of Warren, Ohio in Nov. 1983 of $1683

Sagerat22 was kind enough to ask me on another website to come over and post some photos of my LH Kimber. It probably will not be too exciting for the died in the wool purist Kimber collectors because I restocked it. I found it in a gunstore outside of Missoula MT about 1984 if my memory is correct, and traded off a LH Remington BDL for it. Although it shot like a house afire, the stock was plain as mud. When I was living in western Oregon, I took a piece of locally procured claro to the famous stockmaker Earl Milliron, along with the original stock to use as a pattern. He suggested we add a cheekpiece. I actually had two stocks turned, and used the other as a practice piece. After I got done with the stocking, Pat Taylor did my checkering.













The serial number is 4xx; I was able to order a M84 in .223 when they were coming out, and was able to reserve the same serial number.
