They are fine to hunt with and terrible to shoot off the bench.

I hunt with mine. I could not get comfortable with the high comb at all. Some people, maybe most get along fine with it.
If you end up having an issue with it, you can order a Classic Varmint stock from Numrich for around $100.00. It's a drop in, just transfer the recoil lug.
I really like that rifle a lot.

From the hood of the truck you would probably be fine. From a bipod prone, forget it.

I think you will like it much better in the varmint stock from Numrich. I did have to do some minor fitting when I swapped mine to make sure barrel was fully floated. But it really looks/handles nice now. Also shoots extremely well. Enjoy your new rifle !

That stock was useless for me, the comb was too high in order to get a good sight picture l had to use high to X high rings, my shooting consisted of all types, prom, bench rest, off-hand standing l was forever trying to get a good sight picture.
l fixed my problem with the Varmint stock that l bought from Numrich arms end of my problem and a nicer-looking rifle.

The top picture is HS stock with riser blocks to make it useable for me.

The second picture Numrich Kimber Varmint stock

The last picture stock mounted and back to OEM scope blocks and end of the problem that l had.

I always thought I had high cheek bones because I always needed risers. That was until I bought an HS. I had to swap that stock to something else.

I did the same as others when I got mine. That comb was ok for me but I dislike tall rings. With the Varmint stock it shoots and handles great.





It shoots decent enough. 45 rds. of RWS Subsonic.

My brother has one, and he, his daughters, and I all shoot it in great comfort offhand. It is close to being too high from the bench, but very doable, and half comfortable.

I use mine in the field, and she is plenty accurate. Many moons ago I restocked mine with the varmint stock, and it handles much better in the woods.
