Kimber Goes Lighter With The Subalpine Mountain Rifle Build

June 26, 2017

Famous for its featherweight rifles, Kimber‘s Subalpine Mountain Rifle offers mountain hunters the precision they need.

According to Guns America, the Subalpine is chambered for .280 Remington Ackley Improved, .308 Winchester, .30-06 Springfield, .300 Winchester Short Magnum and .300 Winchester Magnum. Subalpine also has a sub-MOA accuracy guarantee.

The Gore Optifade Subalpine camo finished mountain rifle sports a 22-inch fluted, threaded stainless steel barrel and comes with the option to install a knurled thread protector.

To complete the kit, Kimber joined forces with Leupold to create matching riflescopes. Leupold offers two matching camp finish VX6-HD scopes, a 2-12x42mm or 3-18x44mm scope, for a complete subalpine kit.
