The company was founded as “Kimber of Oregon” in 1979 by Jack Warne and his son Greg Warne in the small town of Clackamas, Oregon. An Australian. Following its founding, Kimber of Oregon, which quickly built a reputation for accurate .22 long rifle caliber rifles, began to expand its product line and eventually acquired a second manufacturing plant in nearby Colton.

In 1989, the Company was sold to Oregon timber baron Bruce Engel, who founded WTD Industries, Inc. In the mid-1990s, Greg Warne tried to revive it, but much of the company original tooling had ended up in a junkyard north of Portland. Warne soon found a financial backer in Les Edelman, who owned Nationwide Sports Distributors. The company now has locations in New York and New Jersey.
