Kimber mod 82

Ok so I am very new here but have two Kimber mod 82’s from the early 80’s thanks to Dad. He’s gone now but before he passed in 2015 he told me to hold onto these two rifles. I can’t seem to learn much about them for obvious reason owing to the company’s bad times early on. The .22 long rifle is deadly accurate and a joy to shoot. I have one major issue with this rifle. The dang bolt comes out even though finger is not on the trigger during the heat of the battle with nocturnal flying squirrels on the bird feeder. Anyone else experienced this issue? Also I am trying to figure out how early this rifle was built in Kimber’s production. The serial number of the rifle is “1684”

Next question is my other Kimber mod 82 is a .22 Hornet. I thought the centerfire rifles were higher models 84 or 86? This rifle shoots very well but has extractor issues. It’s serial number is H616. I have already the historical background post on Kimber with respect to mod 82a, c, etc....
Also what does “TIPS” mean in the description of a Kimber. Thanks, Pelt1962
