The K6 are finally here...

According to a member on my Facebook page the K6 are on the shelves and he has one...He paid $840 for it and it would take Captain Skyy to buy one since that seems a bit much for a 2" revolver, but weirder things have happened in the Skyy world....

I got an alert this morning about one on Gunbroker for I think the price was $899. But don't bet the bank on that price, I have had a nap since then.

Three problems maybe four IMO with the Kimber Revolver.
1. Priced to high IMO
2. Not sure I like the look (kind of blocky)
3. Why .357
4. Already have enough snub nose 357 revolvers.

On the plus side I don't expect it to have any function problems.

I just can't see that revolver being close to $900... A S&W or Ruger maybe, but a new gun with no history to fall back on ??

Marshall says no, but the Captain says watch and see...

I feel Captain should listen closely to Marshall.

Crazy

Just checked Gunbroker and there is some crazy chit with some stupid people going on. There are several K6S listed for auction. Most all are way over priced.
One active listing with 19 bids and the price is already at $1,075.

No freaking way.

Oh and they all just have that ugly plain black rubber grip not the nice fancy wood grip shown in the video you posted.

They maybe the buyers that stick them in the safe never fired low serial number and hope to make a few bucks down the road. I gotta believe the price will come down a little after the frenzy buying slows down.

I can't see overpaying for a new gun that in 3 months will be below list price and available everywhere.

I thought about the K6 when it hit the Kimber catalog and then asked myself...Is this an answer to question that was never asked? Do we need another revolver on the market at this time in handgun "history"? My S&W revolvers work great and are reasonably priced with tons of mod's available. I'll wait to see if the K6 catches-on and see what happens with the price...then decide if I need another revolver.
