K6S STAINLESS Blue or Black Grips

Is there any differance in the K6S STAINLESS (MSRP $899) between the blue grips that first came on the original shipments and the black grips that they are shipped with now?

The K6S seems to be continually evolving. I have noticed different front sights on some of their guns also.
Mine, with lasergrips, from the factory.

Yeah like 340pd said, some with black grips have 3 Dot White sights (there are several different model numbers) I am pretty sure these two numbers 3400004, 3400010 have 3 Dot sights there may be others.
On Kimber's website they list them as K6S Stainless (NS) but I have not found any on GunBroker listed that way. Kimber site calls them "Night Sights" so I assume they "Glow"? I think the First Edition models are #3400001 and the Blue grips are maybe 3400002.

The three dot sights is the only major difference I know of. Other than different base MSRP's

Maybe someone else knows more about the situation.

**K6s owners what style sights do you have?****

Does yours also have 3 Dot White sights? The front sight looks like it does and it looks taller.

All gun makers only have a few guns to sell. But they sell them over and over and over again to the same owners, by changing the color, or the grips, or the sights, or the name, or the engraving, or the something else of little or no consequence.

Ok, then that's another question, I thought I saw Kimber's website calls them "Night Sights" but I guess that don't mean that they glow in the dark but when I read Night Sights that's what I assume.

I like the Blue Crimson Trace laserless grips, on mine, they are phorus enough to help keep a good grip on my gun, I have ordered some Altamont wood grips, a pair of boot cut Rose wood grips, just to see if there is a difference, or if they will be any better, if not the blue grips work just fine..
