    Need some info on a Kimber Augusta 12 ga. I heard that they were made by Antonio Zoli & are similar to the Zoli Z Sport & Verona LX980.
    Do you or anyone you know own onw & if so I could use some opinions & feedback.

    Thanks,

    i_shoot ,

    The Kimber Augusta (that I drooled over) was (is) one of the most stricking guns I have ever mounted . It was 32" with really dark wood that was extremely well figured . It lacked a drop out trigger group but had I not just acquired a Dakota/Zoli , my emotions may have gotten the better of my judgement .

    At the time , it was priced at $5400 ; and I was advised by the shop owner that he would not take an order for a "group of spare parts" that would have bolstered my confidence in a long term relationship with the gun .

    I don't know if the S/O just didn't want to be bothered with my "wish list" or what ; a call to Kimber wasn't any more encouraging .
