Default Frustrated with Kimber

I ordered a 257 Roberts from Kimber on 6/5/20. Iím still trying to get this rifle. Iíve talked to the SG&A Mgr. where I bought the gun and the Kimber rep but was told because of the pandemic they were having issues but couldnít tell me when I could get it. So I then decided to email the Marketing Director to see if he could help. He sent customer service to answer me which they didnít know anything either. So I talked to the Kimber Rep and he was going to email the Rifle Manager and cc me about when I should get it. He never did. The Kimber Rep did text me that they were planning on getting something started but the issue was going to be the wood stock. Well I ended up sending a email to someone I saw on LinkedIn that said he was the rifle Manager and didnít receive a reply. I just got a call from The customer service supervisor and he told me itís not even on the production schedule and he said expect it being started ďsometimeĒ in 2022. So much for customer service.

I'd have to pull that order and go another route. Just the bs you've gone through I wouldn't want to carry the thing. Plenty of other manufacturers out there that won't give you the run around.
I hate to hear it.

What’s so special about that rifle to wait that long?

Cancel the order & get a REAL Kimber of Oregon rifle...I wouldn't want a yonkers gun anyway.

PM me if you decide to go this route...I know a couple of guys who can help find what you want. I'm sure the the 257 bob from oregon is rather rare, but would be a much better investment & shooter.

Cancel.. you’ll probably be really frustrated when you get the gun after 3 years and it shoots 3” groups

Might check Gunbroker. There are currently several Kimber rifles in .257 Roberts, though they might not be in the model you’re looking for.

Cancel that order. Kimber ain't that good anyway. And it's sure not worth waiting two years for.

Total BS. The “pandemic” has just become a catch all excuse for people to not do anything.

If they knew the issue was going to be the wood stock, they should have contacted you immediately and offered to let you switch to a quality synthetic stock instead, or told you they will build it with an injection molded one and ship out the wood one whenever it was available.

There’s no way in heck a Kimber is worth a 2 month wait much less a 2 year wait. Pistol or rifle.
