A scarce and seldom found LEFT HANDED Kimber of Oregon Model 82 Classic in .22 Hornet. This Classic Kimber features the California Claro walnut stock that Kimber was known to provide during the early to mid-1980s. The honey brown colors and the birdseye burl make the rifle special. Features include: 18 line-per-inch hand checkered multi-point panels on each side of the forearm and each side of the grip; 3 shot removable magazine; grooved-top receiver; disc safety with both a green dot for “safety on” and a red dot for “safety off” (an early feature as the later disc safeties showed only the red dot); a checkered steel butt plate; a three dimensional steel grip cap; and post-style sling swivel studs. This rifle has original Kimber of Oregon one inch diameter scope rings for the grooved top receivers and are split horizontally (Kimber’s preferred ring design for the Model 82). OAL: ~40 5/8 inches. LOP: ~ 13 5/8 inches. Barrel: 22 inches. Weight, with bolt in and rings attached: ~6.5 pounds. This rifle looks like it has seen little use when you inspect the magazine follower, bolt and receiver, but the stock has a number of small dings, nicks, scratches and shallow indentations around the toe, along the side of the butt, near the rear receiver are at the top of the pistol grip and on the inside of the pistol grip. The trigger guard has a small lateral area that is missing the bluing. Overall, the stock seems to exhibit what some of us call “gun safe rash” that results from moving guns in and out of a gun safe and inadvertently striking other guns in the process. The missing bluing could be corrected by judicious application of “cold blue” on the warmed metal surface. The photos attempt to show what we have described in words. All marks are minor in our opinion. The rifle is very nice all in all, and certainly a great shooter to have if you are left handed and like the .22 Hornet cartridge. The rifle comes with a new condition, light green Kimber Bob Allen padded, zippered rifle case with Kimber logo. SN: “LHH194”
