Kimber Model 8400 Caprivi Rifle Receives Major Award

Yonkers, New York, May 28, 2008 – American Rifleman Magazine recently named the Kimber® Model 8400™ Caprivi™ their Rifle of the Year, presenting Kimber with the 2008 Golden Bullseye Award.

Golden Bullseye Awards, NRA Publications Division’s highest honor, are determined following extensive field testing against the best products in the shooting industry.

The November, 2007, issue of American Rifleman Magazine reported that the Caprivi is “…the most accurate factory-made bolt gun of its type we’ve tested.” Considering their records extend back for several generations, this is a superlative observation on Kimber quality.

The Model 8400 Caprivi is a classic dangerous game rifle. Available chamberings are .375 H&H and .458 Lott.
