First ever Kimber and it's a K6S

Specifically, it's a K6S Stainless Brushed (2017) 669278340104 UPC California model. It is Brushed staineless with 3 white dots for sights. They are not night sights, but at least they are not all black either.

I will take to range tomorrow and post results, but I do have a question. I can put my fingers on the front sight and it "wiggles" a little left to right. Now this is not a 100 yard gun by any means, but it just seemed a little odd, especially coming from a company with a reputation and price indicating high quality.

Any thoughts?

I would like to say that because politics in CA are a bit shifty but,

the front sight should not move at all. Contact Kimber cust. service.

I agree sights should be rock solid even on a 200 dollar gun.

I thought the KS6 was WAY more than $200!!

Good luck with the sight and have fun with the new gun.
