When they haven’t tried it they cannot know. Only have a blind opinion based on emotion. Not experience

I give zero craps about the aesthetics of a rifle for hunting

Purely form and function. Suppressors add to this when done correctly. Not subtract

If I was hunting from a hunting shack I’d invest in a nail and a pair of ear muffs.

Or, if I wanted an ugly rifle with a can, I’d be a Ruger American or a Savage Axis.

Edited to say, Walter carried a 1911, unsuppressed. whistle

Yes, we should all pay extra for some ugly feature that 1 in 100 of us wants or will use. But what do I know?


If you honestly think that tomorrow, the cost of a Kimber would go down if they stopped threading the end - man I don't know what to say.

Just me, but if Kimber is threading them there must be a demand for them. No dog in the fight but with the lighter suppressors we get everyday, they may not look like a classic rifle, but they are excellent for kids/new shooters/etc to get in on shooting without blast and recoil that allow them to focus on the fundamentals of marksmanship without the penalties. Plus, just like the scopes some of us like to use, if we start out with a lighter rifle like a Montana, we can add scopes that work better for us, same idea with suppressors I think. Even if you don't use them, they make shooting multiple rounds in practice pretty danged nice without the blast and associated recoil.

My BIL has a transgendered cat named Jeffrey

Female he thought was a male and named Jeffrey after fresh prince lol


Hunting shacks, ground blinds, treestands, boot rubber

All hunting tools that I use as needed. With kids, that hunting tower makes a world of difference. Especially for elevating them safely at 6-8yrs old. So does the tripod, so does the suppressor.

But I’m guessing in TX you know how it’s done right. I should be so lucky as to get pointers from you!

Egg-zactly.

I don't care if my Montana's came with a picture of Nancy Pelosi on the barrel. It's simply the nicest carrying rifles I own. Not even close.

I'd love to find one of them.

I have a .243 Win as well. I have a ton of 7mm bullets for loading the .280. It would be a smooth transition to never use that again if I had a Montana in 7-08.

Threaded 1/2-28


Same here. I'd be ecstatic with a standard length barrel on a Montana in 223 as well.

I’d definitely be on board for a Montana or Hunter in .223 - if they’d twist it properly...... say1:7 or 1:8 !

I hate the wart on the end of the barrel. I really wish they get rid of it.


If the thread protector was turned down and blended instead of knurled and bigger diameter than barrel, I'd be okay with it.



I could live with way better. I really don't like the large nurled section.

You can put me on that list for a couple of Kimbers in .223. I would even be happy with Hunters.

Just bucked some firewood with an 881 magnum, no hearing protection.

15 yrs ago, helping a 50 cal gunner clear a jam in mosul, fkn thing went off near a wall. Ears were ringing for at least 10 hrs.

We are american men, and we are replaceable. These beta male manginas who think they need a suppressor on a fkn hunting rifle........embarassing.

Last "new age" rifle i bought, went straight to the fairbanks, Ak gunsmith to cut those stoopid threads off the barrel. Best $40 I ever spent.
