Kimber 84M
Hi
Have anyone of you outthere any experience from Kimber 84M in .308.
I have so far testfired 3 rifles and all have terribleaccuracy, often 2-3 MOA.
Fails to feed roundnosebullets, and have their firings pins seriousely offcenter.
But I am so surprised, as the machining of the rifles looks nice and there is so many things on the guns that feels and looks rigth but they simply fails on every important subject.
So the question is can Kimber make rifles and just have sent their garbageproduction to Sweden or are they unable to make rifles?
 
Regards Technika

I've had 84M's in 243, 260, 7mm-08, and 308.  All shot MOA or close.  The 308 was the worst shooter, but I decided it was mostly me; it was a Montana and kicked like a mule with 165 gr bullets.  I found it tough to shoot off the bench.  Don't have any answer for the off center pins; I've had 7 kimbers and all were top notch in every way.

Is the pin mark high or low?  I'm making some guesses, but sounds to me that something is out of alignment like how the barrel is screwed in or the chamber is cut funny.  Is the barrel round?  I mean machinist round, not just style.  Is the bore off center?

There is a post on another forum I frequent that has a post complaining of the same poor accuracy. Must be a few of em' out there that shoot 2-3" thats for sure with factory ammo.
