Default Kimber 82 trigger guard shims

I had the action out of a Kimber 82 to adjust the trigger. Only removed the two action screws (which leaves the forward trigger guard screw in place).

Was handing the stock when I heard a little plunk/tink. Knew something had fallen out, then saw the little shim part with a hole in it. It had to go between the trigger guard and stock. Then I noticed one on the front side of trigger guard as well.

The parts diagram for the rifle (from the Kimber 82 operating manual) does not show these shims as numbered parts of this rifle.

Anyone have information on the shims? Were they factory or installed by military after purchased? This was a CMP rifle.

They're in my rifles. You'll be able to tell which goes where pretty easily if you look closely, I forget now - one is larger than the other though... (Front vs rear, I mean... both go under trigger guard)

Roger, thanks. It was easy because only one of them fell out. Never took out the front trigger guard screw.

You would think that all the parts would be in the parts diagram.

True, but from all I've read, the M82G program was pretty ad-hoc at times, and they really had to hustle with respect to a few issues that cropped up. Am thinking it ended up being a money-loser for Kimber ?
