Mystery Kimber 84 223



Log in to see fewer ads
Relatively recent acquisition of a mystery Kimber model 84 223. This little gem has attributes of several different models, but isn't marked to identify it as a Super America or.....
Features include full wrap fore end checkering, Niedner butt plate, upgraded wood, ebony tip and cap, cheekpiece....

Is this a unicorn, special order, or??????

My guess is itís a Super Grade; especially if itís a Colton gun. A Greg Warne ploy to further mystify Kimber nomenclature

I think you may be right except no shadow line cheek peace, no inletted swivels, anx not flute in front of the trigger guard. This is definitely an interesting rifle. i need more and better pictures please to id it fully.

Good points Rich! As a side note, is the scope objective touching the barrel? If so, that needs to be fixed immediately.

This rifle belongs to a buddy but no, the scope doesn't touch the barrel- but it is very close....

This is the question of what model this one is- it has features of several different models, but not of any particular model and the serial number doesn't designate the model style like a SA or Continental designation might.... just trying to pin it down a bit or determine if it was a custom at Clackamas when it was built...


It is a beautiful rifle and shoots very, very well with my handloads and my buddy's loads. Personally, I think the Kimber triggers on the rifles I have shot have some of the best triggers I've ever felt....

The stock is a first transition stock from "S" series to Super American. It has only one flute, it has a straight bolt handle (A).

IMO....This stock most surely was made in 1984. Greg got a lot of flack from Gun Writers because the design only had one flute. We changed to 2 flute Super America stocks mid 1984. And yes there was no floorplate detent "arrow" as that was a design change someone thought made the stock more appealing to the American hunter. Flack from customers caused this to vary several times in KOO history.
