Kimber is best known for its 1911s, but the Yonkers, N.Y.-based company is definitely no slouch in the rifle department. Two of the latest additions in that category for 2018 are the Kimber Advanced Tactical SOC II and SRC II precision rifles, which boast a .5 MOA accuracy standard.
Both the Advanced Tactical SOC II and SRC II incorporate Kimber’s 8400 action, which features a full-length Mauser claw extractor for controlled round feeding and extraction. Each model also sports a 3-position wing safety, as well as a match grade trigger tuned to break clean at 2.5 pounds. The SOC II has a 22-inch barrel, while the SRC II has a 16-inch barrel. In addition, the muzzles on both are 5/8-24 threaded for a muzzle brake or sound suppressor.
Meanwhile, the barreled action for each precision gun is mounted in a McRees Precision G10 Standard aluminum lightweight chassis that features a side-folding stock adjustable for 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 SOC II comes with either a sniper gray or FDE chassis system, while the SRC II is available with a FDE chassis. Both ship out with a nylon stock pack and drag bag for storage and deployment.
Chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 Win., the Kimber Advanced Tactical SOC II is available at a MSRP of $2,449. The SRC II is offered in .308 Win and shares the same price tag.
