We stopped by the Kimber booth at this years SHOT Show to see what new products they had for 2015. One of the stand outs to us is the new Adirondack rifle in .300 Blackout. Check out the photos for some details. The “bell” on the end of the otherwise thin barrel is there so it can be threaded. Suppressed .300 Blackout is where its at and on this bolt action it should be super quiet. The rifle is incredibly compact, and light–the perfect option for those long stalk hunts. The MSRP is $1,768.

Other stand out are some new finishes in the Gem Stone line. Check out the Onyx and Saphire. The bright blue sapphire slide with the stainless frame makes for a slick looking Kimber Solo. The Solo Sapphire’s MSRP is $1,291 and the Onyx Ultra II is $1,652.
Kimber has also made some new models of the Micro Pistols. The Raptor style is a standout. I was particularly enamored with the striations on the slide.
Much of what Kimber is bringing to the market this year is already familiar, but the variations on the themes are visually stunning, and offer some solid ergonomic upgrades.
The barrel on the Adirondack has a “bell” shape to have room for threads.
With the cap removed you can see the flat behind the threads to help support a suppressor.
