ARTV: Kimber's Mountain Ascent

posted on March 8, 2016

Lightweight and accurate, the Mountain Ascent rifle from Kimber features a Kevlar-reinforced carbon fiber stock for added durability. With a barreled action finished in Shade Gray KimPro II, the Mountain Ascent rifle has a fluted barrel and bolt which cuts unnecessary weight, and a muzzle brake with cap that helps reduce felt recoil. You can learn more about Kimber's gem in the video embedded above, taken from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV on Outdoor Channel.
