Kimber 8400 Caprivi 375 H&H Magnum

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The lovely wood of the Kimber Caprivi stole our hearts, but we admit the 10X tactical scope is not the best setup here. We liked the well-fitted ebony forend tip and the front sling stud on the barrel. We had no problems with this rifle and thought it was worth its price.

Superb wood combined with excellent workmanship, a great recoil pad, excellent checkering, and classic lines made the Kimber Caprivi stand out. Kimber did it all just right.
Two cross bolts help keep the fine stock in one piece. The fine hand-done checkering was borderless and wrapped the forend, but not the pistol grip, where there were two large panels. Note the matte bluing.
The hood gave excellent protection to the large white bead, and could not fly forward off the gun. It comes off the back, after you move the tiny Allen screw out of the way. There’s lots of little details on this front sight, which, by the way, is the only rifle of the three that doesn’t have a barrel-band here.
The standard has a wide V that mated well with the front bead. The folding leaves are left unfiled (“green”) for regulation by the owner’s gunsmith after the best load is selected. They had stiff spring detents to keep ‘em up or down, as did all three rifles. The sight can be drifted for windage. The clamping screw is just visible at the right.
