Kimber has a well-earned reputation for making bolt-action hunting rifles that are impressive in both looks and performance. Several years ago the company decided to enter the tactical rifle market.

The latest AmericanRifleman.org Gun of the Week, the Model 8400 Patrol, is one example of Kimber’s efforts in this area. While the Patrol doesn't sport a classic walnut stock, the rifle still demonstrates plenty of Kimber quality.
