In the past, all Kimber rifles were stocked in claro walnut and checkered by hand, with quite traditional looks. The 84M Montana, however, is a radical departure. Kimber wanted a Kevlar stock for the gun, it being the lightest and strongest of all stock materials. So the company hired Melvin Forbes of New Ultra Light Arms, who was the first to develop a Kevlar stock, to show it how to make one. The resulting rifle weighs 5 pounds with Leupold scope bases attached, which means it weighs 4 pounds 14 ounces by itself. Friends, you do not want a centerfire rifle any lighter than that. All stainless steel, the Montana comes with Kimber's very high quality 22-inch button-rifled barrel, an excellent trigger, and a tasteful paint job in Institutional Gray. It's chambered for the .243, .260, 7mm/08, and .308.
