Kimber is now making a........what? We all know that Kimber makes some of the finest pistols in the world but now they are making a revolver.
The “concealed carry” revolution in this country has spawned many new and easily carried handguns in the last decade. Several companies that did not exist just a few years ago are now offering some fine handguns for consideration. Older more established companies have also introduced new models.
Now, one of the big names in pistols has an entry.
"The K6s™ revolver brings an unmatched level of performance and shootability to concealed carry.
With the smallest cylinder capable of holding 6 rounds of .357 Magnum (also compatible with .38 Special), K6s compact revolvers are ideal for back-up, concealed carry and home defense.
The Kimber K6s’ small frame, two-inch barrel and 1.39 inch diameter cylinder are machined from the finest stainless steel for superior integrity, strength, and resistance to the elements. The Kimber K6s offers other important design features, such as: a smooth match-grade trigger that creates confidence while helps ensure accuracy; an internal hammer and edges that are rounded and blended to help prevent a hang up when the revolver is removed from concealment; superior ergonomics and grip design that creates an extremely shooter-friendly experience; and an all stainless steel construction weighing in at 23 ounces.
For those who require a small package with mild recoil, K6s provides the power needed for concealed carry, home protection and many other applications. Best off all, they offer unequaled Kimber quality, dependability and performance."
.357 Magnum power that fits in your pocket. The K6s Stainless features superior ergonomics, smooth trigger and satin finish.
Individuals who have actually shot this gun are mostly very positive about it. It is a Kimber after all. There is still a pretty large segment of the population that likes the idea of a revolver. They consider it to be very safe and reliable and the K6 should find a real home with this group of folks.
The idea of a small revolver that is chambered for the .357 Magnum shell is a good one. It's a very powerful cartridge and well known to generations of shooters. The fact that it can also chamber and fire the venerable .38 Special is a real plus. That allows a lot of practice with a low recoil round to become familiar with the gun. Those .38 Special rounds, especially wad cutters, can really help a shooter to gain confidence with a revolver and put the necessary rounds through it to break it in, without developing a flinch from shooting full power .357 loads.
The K6s should be at dealers soon and available for you personal inspection. It's Great to see another high quality revolver in the marketplace.
