Funny too as some of the original comments from 5 years ago state Winchester never pursued a sniper rifle with the military. Not true, they got dumped on every time they went in to try and get one approved.
Maybe because Kimber customer service is less than stellar? The Kimber of today is not the same Kimber of 20 years ago. Just like the Win Model 70 of today is not the same as the pre-64. If you like todays' Kimbers, hurray and more power to you. I'll be keeping my pre-64 and it will be handed down from generation to generation in my family.
The part I remember reading is that Winchester didn't want to make the request changes to their design and basically
said take it or leave it. Remington made the requested changes and won the contract.
Mine does. I can't speak for all Mausers, but my 1937 WW2 North African capture definitely has a bevel sufficient enough for snap over. I imagine the bevel is more for fitting the corresponding bevel in the brass case, and for ejection. Nonetheless, it snaps over.
