Pitched as a high country rifle, the new Mountain Ascent series uses a Gore Optifade SubAlpine pattern and comes in five caliber offerings.

The newest chapter in New York-based Kimber’s 84M bolt-action rifle story is a 5 to 6-pound mountain rifle with a stainless steel barrel complete with a muzzle brake. Offered in .280 Ackley Improved, .308 Win, .300 WSM, .300 Win Mag, and the venerable .30-06, barrel length varies from 22 to 26-inches depending on caliber.

Besides the reinforced carbon-fiber stock, the rifle keeps the ounces off through use of a spirally fluted bolt body, partially fluted barrel, and skeletonized bolt knob. The muzzle break attaches with a 7/16x28TPI thread pitch for swapping out other muzzle accessories or suppressors.

The adjustable trigger is set between 3.5 and 4-pounds while the action includes a Mauser claw extractor and 3-position Model 70-type wing safety.

All models come with a 4-round internal box magazine. The rifle is advertised as being sub-MOA accurate while a butt pad and brake aim to mitigate felt recoil.

MSRP across the line is $2,082.
