#SundayGunday: Kimber Mountain Ascent

It’s standard practice to talk about what a rifle has, not what it lacks. But Kimber’s Mountain Ascent is conspicuous not for what it includes but what it leaves out: namely, weight. Can you imagine a .30-06 bolt-action rifle weighing less than 6 pounds? This unit does. In fact it weighs 5 pounds, 2 ounces without a scope, mounts and ammo on board. Short-action chamberings weigh even less, a mere 4 pounds, 13 ounces. In case anyone missed the significance of that, let’s put it this way: The Mountain Ascent is lightest production big-game rifle in the world. Learn more about it with the video embedded above, hosted by American Hunter Editor-in-Chief J. Scott Olmsted.

MSRP: $2,040
