I had one. Not aware that it was a limited edition, just so many made before the company folded. K of A wasn't around that long.
One of my most unpleasant gun ownerships, but part of that was due to the caveman gunsmith that I used to address an issue with the gun.

The problem with Kimber limited editions is that towards they did a lot of them. There were quite a few people who had serial numbers assigned to them but had to keep buying to retain it. In the end I got the feeling it was a way the company was financing the business. My boss at the time stopped somewhere around 100.

Limited Edition means limited to how many they can sell.

In reality, with the limited number of C guns made, they were all limited edition rifles. Can you imagine what a C Custom Match would fetch? They didn’t even make 100 of them. I bet my buddy Cam is just sitting on 3 or 4 of the best wooded ones to dangle in front of watchaddic to watch him drool.

Lets put it this way. There were lots of variations and they tended to call those limited editions. They might only make 500 of them but beyond the mainstream classic, SA, cascade, etc. there were lots of the variations and the got even more creative towards the end. Nothing wrong with them but some are worth more than others. The custom match for one and the brownell version. Remember a continental full length stock too.

I think the 82C limited edition was actually supposed to be the pencil barreled stainless model rather than the fluted model. From an unscientific viewpoint, there are way more fluted barrel guns encountered than there are standard barreled rifles. It seems like I read somewhere that there were appx 125 standard barreled rifles made, maybe it was on the box for mine, I need to check.
From a broad view perspective, I think a case could be made that about all Kimbers are "limited editions" when you consider that only about 18,300 82's (not including the 82G's) were made in total, per Bob Rapp, which is way fewer than the runs of different models made by the major manufacturers.

Hey, Vert, I sold my C Custom Match (#CM 75 of 100) to Hambone several years ago. It was a really nice one. He may still have it if you're looking for one.

He's still got it; and you are right, its a dandy! Luckily, Sage found me one several years ago and it resides with me now.

The Canyon Creek 82 you sold me definitely qualifies as a Limited Edition!!!! I love that thing. Thanks Doug!

I somehow wish I had kept at least two of the many Kimbers I had over the years. Like that C Custom Match and -- sorry -- that Canyon Creek 82. Did you know LeRoy still has the latter's pics posted on his website?

Cam, that 1712 was/is definitely a gem. It now surely has a new, good home and will get more use than I was giving it. The downside of having 35+ plus .22s, is that too many go unused for prolonged periods. But if I had a range in my back yard...

82s gone away

I shipped away a late A cc yesterday. Perfect in every way. Except it had panel checkering instead of wrap. Nicest wood you could get on a Custom classic. I'm certainly gonna miss it. But I've got to make space. I really need to clean house on some super nice stuff. I just can't house them safely. But it's all part of the game right? Keep adding, keep selling, keep trading up? They will have to bury me with some of them. BTW I've seen Verts Canyon Creek 82 and I've got to say it a beauty!

I got to live that dream way back when my family owned the big range in N. IL. Now it's back to just a dream again.....
