K6S DC - my first Kimber
I am new to the Forum and a new Kimber owner.
Earlier this week, I picked up a K6S DC.
I am a revolver fan and I was interested in Kimber's evolutionary take. From what I saw and read here, elsewhere online and at the LGS, I felt the need to dig into the K6S.
Unfortunately, the Range was fully booked when I picked up my DC, so I have no shooting experiences to share yet.
However, I would like to share my initial impressions:
- The grips feel slick - almost slippery. Perhaps they will wear in a bit after use. I am used to the Hogue rubber grips on my S&W 65-3.
-I can fit only 2 fingers on the grip, but my pinky curls around and under the bottom of the grip nicely. I am used to larger grips, but these don't feel too small. I may change that opinion after shooting.
-The night sights are a little difficult for me to see in good light. They have a great glow in low/no light.
-The trigger has great staging and an even pull. I suspect it will soften even more with use.
-Love the overall feel. It is well balanced - very concealable yet substantial. To me, it "feels" in between a J frame and K frame.
-DLC finish just looks cool.
I think that any of my comments that may sound critical are just a result of my being used to my K frame S&W. I also think that the grips and sights on the DC are obviously designed for concealed carry - and they may be perfect for that. Again, just not what I am used to.
I am looking forward to shooting the K6S DC and sharing my impressions afterwards.
