The Kimber BGR was only produced from 1988 until the companies demise in 1991 with fewer than 5000 produced. This is the top of the line model with all the bells and whistles and the only one that I have seen with bolt knob checkering and engraving. It is in nearly new condition with very slight handleing marks. Appears to be test fired only. I think that the Kimber BGR has been a very under appreciated semi-custom rifle with many outstanding features that exceed the Dakota rifles. I particularly like their DSB Mauser action. This one is exceptionally nice.
