It seems to be accepted gunmaking practice to create short action models the easy way. Shorten a standard action and maybe cut a couple inches of barrel. Forget changing the stock – too much work.
The Model 84M was designed specifically as a short action hunting rifle. Made from the finest materials machined to unequaled standards, weight is dramatically reduced without compromising accuracy. Proper balance, controlled round feeding and extraction, dependability and all the best features are engineered into each model. Naturally, the Model 84M has the look and feel of an American classic.
How much less does a Model 84M weigh? Take a Classic or Montana model and tape a brick to the stock, then it will weigh about the same as most other rifles chambered in the same caliber. Recoil? Proper stock shape and a 1-inch Pachmayr® Decelerator recoil pad on Classic, Montana and SuperAmerica models make them surprisingly easy to shoot.
Walking and heavy varmint models with longer, heavy barrels are also available. Even then, the Model 84M action keeps weight in the barrel where it benefits accuracy.
The Kimber Model 84M. Less than you expect.
The Model 84M Classic Stainless has already made a name for itself in big game fields from Alaska to Africa. Introduced two years ago, demand still outstrips the limited supply.
