Does anyone know if $850 would be a fair price to pay for this rifle in 7-08 ? The gun dealer says it could be sold as new condition. It also has the kimber bases along with 1" med leo rings.
   The best price I have found for new one in my area is $1020+tax http://www.kimberamerica.com/rifles/model-84m/classic

Yes, that's a fair price. Heck, you have at least $50 worth of rings and bases right there.

looks like a great price to me and a nice round too.  I'd venture to bet if you got it and didn't like it youd be able to get your money back easy!

[QUOTE=Roy Finn]Yes, had an 84M in 7-08. I like them very much.  Every once in awhile you can get one that doesn't shoot real well that can drive you bonkers. I think all the way around, they are excellent light weight rifles. Thanks Roy. It looks like you have some experience with this rifle,could you please tell me what you think the acceptable accuracy would be from this rifle ? Thanks kevin

  I handled a used but NICE one (in .308) back in early 90's at Cabela's.  It was $700 back then so $850 sounds GOOD.

If it's a Select, then it would be a good deal. The standard Classic typically (from my experience) can be had for $750 used.

Then again, the 7mm-08 for a time was discontinued and seemed to command a premium.

I never handloaded for mine and just used Federal ammo with Nosler BT's. It would keep three shots right around an inch. I don't know if it could have done better with different factory ammo, but I'd bet it would be better with handloads. Never seen a rifle that wasn't.

I can't think of a better round for a 84M Kimber than the 7-08. You know the funny thing is, I worked at a gun store here in NJ and we had a 7-08 sitting in the rack for a long time. I told my boss I'd give him $750 for it and he said sure WTF.

I had a real purdy 84M in .308 quite a few years ago. It shot pretty well (1 minute of deer), was very lightweight, great wood (although not a Select model) and balanced well. I had a 3-9 X 36 Swaro on it. It a fit of stupidity, I sold it. Here's your sign (my new motto).  Loco

I agree, if its a "select" grade its a darn fair price. Other wise it's just average, but still a fair price.  I had a kimber montana in .260 that i never could get to shoot to my liking so I sold it, I got $900.00 for it a few years back.
