3 finger grip for K6S

I would love to see a 3 finger grip for the K6S. I hate having my little finger hang off. Anyone know if Kimber or aftermarket vendors are going to introduce?

Welcome to the forum from Ohio!! I'm sure there are several companies looking at aftermarket accessories for the K6s.

Welcome to the site from Tennessee. Grips may be on the drawing board.

Ha. When I saw the title of your post I thought you meant you were just using three fingers like I do with my old Detonics .45acp.

That Detonics is an unusual looking gun. Looks like the hammer is specially curved to put cool marks in the web of your thumb. Why's the rear sight placed right there?

Holy cow! No kidding! I've seen and admired Detonics 1911s in the past, but never noticed a hook-hammer before. Even considering the fact that it looks far enough away from the hand to keep it from hammer-bite (unlike USGI spec 1911s)... it still certainly looks to be FAR from being considered "snag-free" in a CCW.

Right behind the sights it is flattened/beveled I think the purpose was to allow to cock the hammer by placing on your belt or edge surface.

Dangling your pinkie finger works very well if you practice. Many times trying to use it on a grip that is too short just screws up your overall grip pressure and you will get scattered shots on target. Too many cooks spoil the soup so to speak.
Two middle fingers of your shooting hand will do the job and keep you consistent.

Oddly never had a problem with snagging but never had to fast draw. It spent decades being concealed either in my back blue jean pocket or an IWB a long time before CC was allowed or popular. That is the original hammer, they had several different styles. This is one of the very first Combat Master's. The pic is the way it used to look which I grew tired of and got a wild hair and had it Cerakoted. Some said I ruined the "value" of it but it really made no difference because I wasn't going to sell it anyway. I like the way it looks now. At self defense distance it is dead nuts accurate, at 50 feet I am lucky to keep it on the paper. Compared to some Colts and others it has a baby beaver tail. Make no mistake it is a handful with hot loads.

Ditto that. Just part of the game when shooting small autos. Never bothers me, as none of my small CCWs are hard to hold on to during recoil. Now if I had a small handgun that barked like me full-size S&W 329PD... that would be a whole different story. But the K6s doesn't... even with heavy 180 grain hardcast HSM bear loads.
