Just picked up this Kimber 458 Lott today. Beautiful wood on this one! Unfired, with only a few safe marks on the stock. Weight is dead on 8lbs 8oz with no scope installed. Shallow V rear three leaf sights and white adjustable front sight, come to point perfectly. Red Decelerator recoil pad of proper proportions. Drilled and tapped for 8-40 scope mount screws.

I loaded up a few rounds of Cutting Edge 450gr solids this evening to check for feed and function, which are perfect. Can't wait to shoot it tomorrow!

Are you getting pictures ready for the for sale ad?

Beautiful rifle, I am curious to read your report. I'm comfortable with a 416REM also shot a 470NE which I did not feel was much more. I hear the 458Lott earns the last part of her name. A lott of recoil. Knowing how found you are of your 416 model 70. It will be nice to know your comparison thoughts.

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
