How do the KOO guns shoot?



Log in to see fewer ads
So I am looking for new field and informal target gun. How do the KOO 82's shoot vs a CZ? I know they sure do look better but I also want to 1 hole at 50yd off bench. Cz can do that with some work, but if I get a Kimber I may blow my budget for tuning. What do you all think?

I've owned three of them and still have one, a Custom Classic. All were beautifull and well-made rifles, but accuracy, while very good, was not spectacular. I could expect an average, with really good ammo, of about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch at 50 yards, which is about what I would expect from a good CZ. In my experience, it's very difficult to find a sporter weight .22 rifle that will shoot much better than that without going the custom route. Some stock Anschutzes with high dollar ammo will.
Also, the later New York made Kimbers usually shoot a bit better than the Oregon made ones.
There are a lot of guys on here with considerably more experience with these than myself, and hopefully they will give their opinions.

My 82B will shoot as good as my CZ's. I can't say if they will all do that. They hold their value very well though so if you buy one at a good price and don't mess with it much you should get your money back.

Don't know if this pertains to your question exactly, but...

I just got a Kimber 82 sporter marked Kimber of America, Inc Clackamas, Oregon. It shot hunting ammo such as Velocitor into .75" at 50 yards, but three other types of ammo were much, much more accurate. Lapua Center X put 4 out of 5 into 1/4" with the 5th opening the group to 1/2", Eley Sport and Eley Target went into 5/8".

All my guns shoot one hole at 50 yards from the bench............for the first shot.
The tricky part is getting 4 more into the same hole. While many guns shoot well, one hole 50 yard 5 shot groups are not common. Most really good groups will be 5 shot cloverleafs that run in the .3-.4's.

Truer words were never spoken. Glad to see reality enter into the conversation about .22 rimfire accuracy. Most of the one-hole 50-yard groups people show here are a single, fluke group, and we all have those.

The most accurate .22 LR rifle I ever owned was a custom Miller single shot with a REALLY good barrel and a really good chamber. I still have all the targets, but that rifle averaged about .275" for 54 5-shot groups; probably the closest I've ever come to "one-hole groups all day." None of my other rifles have bested that rifle, even using similarly great barrels and the same chambering reamer. Honestly, I attribute the accuracy in that rifle to killer ignition. The Miller action was made for centerfire cartridges but had a rimfire conversion block and extractor. It exhibited extremely fast and powerful lock time...at least that's why I think it was so accurate.

To the OP, you might get a really good KoO rifle, and, as mentioned, you won't lose your butt if you buy it right, but I think it's more of a crap shoot than a CZ. An Anschutz would be less of a crap shoot, but a crap shoot nonetheless.

Good luck.

My 82G, does very well, don't have any 50 yard targets, but this is from 100yds. Using Fiocchi 320. Have tried Ely and Lapua, but they don'y shoot as well (Your mileage may vary). I have access to a 100yd tunnel, so most of my shooting is in that no wind to deal with.

I'd say if you want bench rest accuracy get a bench rest gun. A Kimber sporter isn't really designed for the kind of accuracy you seem to want.
