Kimber Rifle Classics: 84M and 84L

8 October 2010 by , 4 Comments

The Kimber Model 84 line of deer hunting rifles are an excellent set of rifles to take with you on your hunt. Coming in at 5.5 pounds, the standard 84M Classic is lightweight mountain deer hunting rifle with a shorter length that makes it easier to handle on long trips into the woods. Its light weight is done without the use of aluminum or synthetics, it is built of walnut and steel giving it a great classic look.

The 84M or medium is chambered to shoot some of the shorter types of ammunition such as  .243 Winchester, .260 Remington, 7mm-08, .308 Winchester, and .338 Federal (the later is overkill for deer) and comes with a 22″ barrel. The 84L or long, is machined for slightly longer calibers including  .25-06 Remington, .270 Winchester and .30-06 Springfield. This along with it’s longer 24″ barrel makes it slightly heaver at 6.2 poounds.

Both or these Kimber rifles have the mauser claw extractor which increases the reliability of the rifle ensuring that you get off that second shot. Additionally they are equipped with he 1″ Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad and detachable sling swivel bases standard. Additional features include:

  • 3 position safety
  • 5 round magazines
  • 2 front locking lugs with a rear lug for safety
  • Steel floor plate and trigger guard,
  • Open topped receiver for easy field loading,

If you need something for varmit hunting there are also flatter shooting, heavier calibers available.

The following videos give you some great looks at the 84L deer hunting rifle in action:

This deer hunting rifle will set you back almost $1000 but they are very accurate, dependable, and rugged and help you get into those deep woods to get that big buck.

A Public Service Announcement: The Rules of Firearm Safety

22 September 2010 by , No Comments

As hunting season starts back up again, it’s always good to have the basic rules of gun safety like the ones at this range in case you’re bringing along someone new and to make sure that everyone fun and safe hunt.

The legendary Colonel Jeff Cooper who pioneered the modern firearm safety, created these rules:

  1. All guns are always loaded.
  2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
  3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
  4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

Whan you take your deer hunting rifle into the woods be sure of these things as well

  • Firearms should be unloaded when not actually in use.
  • Don’t rely on your gun’s safety.
  • If your gun fails to fire when the trigger is pulled, handle with care.
  • Learn the mechanical and handling characteristics of the firearm you are using and have it serviced regularly.
  • Alcohol and firearms do not mix. There’s always time for that kind of fun when you make it back ot camp

Remember we want more of this and less of this.

The United States has one of the lowest per capita firearm accident rates in the world. Let’s try to keep it that way this deer hunting season.
