    Default Fine .22 in Anchorage area.

    Anyone know of a gun shop that carries some of the expensive .22s like Anschutz or Weatherby? I want to go drool...
    So far Great Northern and Sportsmens don't. Should I drive out to Boondocks?

    I'm not aware of any shops that carry top end 22's. There simply isn't much of a market for them. You might want to contact the biathalon club to see where they get their rifles.

    Boondocks is a great shop and worth visiting, but I've never seen an Anshutz there.

    Boondocks special ordered a 17 hmr Weatherby for me. Stop by Boondocks and I am sure that they could order the same rifle for you in 22lr.

    If you want to see what the newer Kimbers look like drop me a PM. My wife and son both have the Hunter versions. I also have a really nice Cooper and a Super something or other Kimber 82.

    Default Kimber .22's

    Talked to the Kimber folks at the most recent SCI convention...they no longer make .22's!

    Kimber stopped making 22 rifles about 8-10 months ago.

    I second the Cooper line of rimfires. Cool little guns with nice wood that are very accurate.

    Check out these links.

    Default Super America ?

    Snowolfe, if yours is a Kimber of Oregon, it is a Super America. Is yours left hand? I have one of their field grades in left hand and I picked up one of the fancy ones (LH) at the "doors are closed" auction...it's my retirement present to myself. I bought the wife one of the laminated ones (RH)...sweet rifles!

    Sad when they closed shop...sadder when they opened up in NY!

    It is a Kimber Oregon, left handed. It has the QD KImber rings with it as well.
    Not sure if it is a Super America as I do not know how to tell as I bought it used but I know it is at least a step or two above what they offered as "standard".
    The "new" Kimber factory never made a left handed .22.

    You can figure out if it is an early or late Oregon rifle. They started making them in Clackamas and the later rifles were made in Colton.
