Does anyone have experience of the 84M Syn/Stainless rifles by Kimber. I am looking to change from my current 243 custom job which is a great rifle but i find it a bit heavy. The Kimber jobs start about 5.5 lbs before you add scope , mod etc.
I have read mixed reviews on American forums regarding accuracy and QC of some of their products.
Other alternatives i was thinking about were Browning X Bolt and Thompson Centre Icon although i have not yet seen a retailer for the Thompsons in the UK.
One of my main criterions with the new purchase will be the rifle must be fairly lightweight. Had a Tika Lite before and had no complaints but fancy something different.
I will be selling my current rifle which is built on a Stiller action, Border Cut rifle barrel Contour 4 ( threaded with invisible cap), HS Stock and timney trigger and will put that in the classified in due course. It has only had about 50 rounds through it.
Any viewpoint welcome
