The Montana is light and short with a 22″ stainless steel barrel. Its stock is synthetic which weighs less than a wooden one making this rifle ultra light. The total weight of this rifle is just a little over 5 lbs! If your spot needs a lot of trekking, this could be the hunting rifle for you!
To test this rifle's accuracy, the hunter aimed at a target 200 yards away. The results were ASTOUNDING! You don't get a group of shots below two inches when the rifle's just out of the box, I mean that's just insane!

A wobbly bolt is the Kimber Montana's minor issue but this does not affect the rifle's performance.
