Last summer, I purchased a Kimber 8400 LongMaster VT in .22-250. They are top quality rifles. Moving forward, if I purchase another bolt action, it will be a Kimber. It shoots sub MOA. Its worth the $. Although my next rifle will have a synthetic stock. My .22-250 is such a great looking gun, I'm afraid to scratch it.

Kimber Rifles are one of the finest expressions of a Mauser type action. If the gun has not been damaged by the previous owner it would be a good investment

Man... I love my Kimber... It is a true semi-custom. Great trigger, amazing accuracy (bedded/floate), and sexy looks to boot.

I have a Kimber Longmaster Classic in .243... Definately worth the money. I topped mine with a 3-9x40 Zeiss Conquest. It is my go-to rig!

Are you sure the Classic was an 8400 and not an 84? The 8400's are long actions (like .30-06, .300WM,.338 WM, etc.) and the .308 is a short action. Bet it's an 84. I have one and it's a beauty. Great wood, light weight and shoots very well. I topped it with a Swaro American 3-9 and it's definately a keeper. Good luck with "yours".

I was going to say the same thing, but I was too lazy to look it up.

I think the classic 84 is the short action (.308)

I want to get an 8400 in .30-06 - 8400's being long action (.30-06)
