Kimber has taken their feathery-light Mountain Ascent rifle and introduced a NEW Subalpine iteration. New for 2019, the Mountain Ascent Subalpine shares many of the original features and is being rolled out in 5 popular, western hunting cartridges. It actually is a blend of two rifles from Kimber, their Subalpine and Mountain Ascent individually, bringing the best qualities of each into a new package for hunters and shooting enthusiasts.
All of these new offerings carry Kimber’s “Sub-MOA Performance Guarantee,” have a 3-Position Wing Safety, and have an MSRP across the board of $2,082. Where the price is absolutely hefty the rifles themselves are quite light. Punching in at 4 Lbs. 13 Oz. for the .308 Win selection and creeping up from there, the Kimber Mountain Ascent Subalpine rifles are definitely light enough to ascend a mountain. Some other key characteristics can be read below as provided by Kimber:
Fluted Bolt, Bolt Handle & Hollow Bolt Knob Full-Length Mauser Claw Extractor delivers Superior Controlled-Round Feeding & Extraction Muzzle Brake & Thread Protector, 7/16×28 Thread per Inch (TPI) Reinforced Carbon Fiber Stock in soft touch Gore Optifade Subalpine 24″ – 26″ Fluted Barrels
