Included in its list of new products for 2018, Kimber announced the new Advanced Tactical SOC II and Advanced Tactical SRC II precision rifles with a .5 MOA accuracy standard.
Both rifles incorporate Kimber’s 8400 action, which includes a full-length Mauser claw extractor for absolute dependability of controlled round feeding and extraction. They also have a three-position wing safety that is positive, quiet and fast and a match grade trigger carefully tuned to break clean at 2.5 lbs. The SOC II (above) has a 22″ barrel and chamberings in either 6.5 Creedmoor or .308 Win., while the SRC II (below) has a 16″ barrel with a .308 set-up. The muzzles are 5/8-24 threaded to accept a standard muzzle break device or sound suppressor.
The rifles’ barreled actions are mounted in a McRees Precision G10 Standard aluminum lightweight chassis system and feature a side-folding stock that is adjustable for both comb height, butt height and length of pull, M-LEV embedded cant indicator, 1913 MIL-STD forward 20 MOA night vision mount, bi-pod mount and MLOK side-mounts, and accepts Accuracy International 5 and 10-round detachable box magazines. The Advanced Tactical SOC II is available with a Sniper Gray or Flat Dark Earth chassis system, and the Advanced Tactical SRC II is available with a Flat Dark Earth chassis system.
Both ship with a nylon stock pack and drag bag suitable for both storage and deployment.
