First post here. I will say first that this thing shoots clover leaf groups at 7 yds with 357 ammo. It is the most accurate 357 snub nose revolver I have in the stable. At seven yards it shoots to center hold.
Ran into some trigger issues. Trigger locked up but only when shooting 357's. Did not happen with 38's.
I have read other posts here about trigger issues and operator error in not allowing a full reset. However I do not think that was/is the problem. Three other shooters had the same experience with this gun.
The frequency of the problem has diminished. Only one instance in the last 100 rds of 357.
The gun now has about 450 rounds through it.
It has been oiled etc.
I have an RMA # (Customer service in getting RMA # was quick and painless). I am however reluctant to send it off. I think it might be something simple I could detect. So, as another member did, I will call to see if removing the side plate to look for obvious issues will not be a problem should the gun really need to go back.
This is what I know so far:
I hear three clicks during the trigger reset process (dry fire).
If the trigger is pulled after the first click of the trigger reset process you get a hard stop and nothing happens until you release the trigger further. (This was what we were getting when shooting 357 loads even though the trigger had been fully released).
If the trigger is pulled after the second click of the reset process the trigger will pull through and the cylinder will rotate but there will be no hammer engagement (this never happened while shooting the gun).
The last click gets you a full reset but only has another couple thousandths of an inch of travel before the trigger is fully released.
All this being said I imagine this will end up being a minor problem to resolve.
Regardless, my opinion is that Kimber has a winner here with the K6s and I am looking forward to buying a 3".
I shoot a couple of S&W 340PD revolvers regularly and confidently carry one as my backup pocket revolver.
I have no doubt that the K6s will be made right one way or another but thought I would share my experience.
I will provide an update upon further developments.
I have decided to return the revolver to Kimber so they can have a look. More info when I get it back.
