    Thumbs up Kimber K6s... very nice gun!

    A few weeks ago I added a couple new handguns to my collection. I finallly got a minute to get a good look at them and the first one that caught my eye was my new Model K6s .357 magnum revolver from Kimber.

    The K6s is manufactured in brushed stainless steel, has a two inch barrel, utilizes the smallest 6 shot .357 cylinder in the industry, has a match grade non stacking D.A.O trigger, and weighs only 23 ounces. I have now 6 Kimbers and this one continues to exhibit the superior fit and finish I have come to expect from this company

    The company says trigger weight is between 9.5 and 11 pounds and mine out of the box measures 9.1 pounds. I expect it will come down a bit with use. As it is I had no problem drawing and point shooting at the half draw keeping all 6 shots in a 6 inch circle at 10 yards as fast as I could pull the trigger.

    I thought I had taken .38 as well as .357 with me to the range. When I got there I only had .38 and only 150 rounds of that. After shooting the gun I see no problems shooting .357 as far as felt recoil. It will still be loud with a large bright muzzle flash however.

    I had to seriously consider if I was going to replace my current carry gun with this revolver. My always used carry gun is a 9mm Bond Bullpup and I have no complaints with it. At 17.5 ounces it is lighter than the Kimber. The Kimber revolver is 6 shots, my Bullpup is 7 + 1. The Bullpup is smaller than the Kimber so it may be a bit easier to conceal. The Kimber is a little less expensive at $900 (MSRP) versus the Bullpup at $1100 (MSRP).

    After much thought I decided I will stay with my Bullpup for daily carry. However, if anything should change my mind the Kimber is right there on the bench just waiting for a chance to go in.

    I see gun control as waiting in an ambulance at the bottom of a cliff when we should be building a fence at the top!

    I had one for a year. I only shoot 357 Magnum.

    In my hands the recoil was punishing.

    I traded it for a S&W 640 357 Magnum 5 Shot and a Bond Arms 357 Magnum 2 Round Derringer. Both of those have no significant recoil.

    I believe the shape doesn’t work for every person.

    I am enjoying both the 2 inch DCR model and the 3 inch version. I put the 3 inch grips on the 2 inch, and it shoots much better in my hands that way. Ending up buying another set from Kimber......and they are proud of their stuff.
