Grips on K6S

What size allen or is it a star does it take to remove the grips?
Thanks
Sam

While we're on the topic of grips, does anyone know of any aftermarket grips
which fit the K6s? The pistol is everything I've come to expect of Kimber,
and shoots really well, just looking for bigger grips.

Altamont Company
I don't know or think they are "bigger" but they have a very large selection of grips for the K6S. A bigger selection than any other place that I have seen. Prices are reasonable IMO.

Altamont does make grips, however, if you are looking for larger grips -- large enough for your little finger to stabilize recoil -- the Altamont grips are not what you need.
I purchased a set about 2 months ago, I will return them. They are only marginally larger than the boot style grip the revolver is equipped with from Kimber. Still no room for the little finger if your hands are even marginally larger than average. I have to re position the K6 each time I shoot.

Control is probably better with the original grip from Kimber, which is less than favorable.

The grip is attractive, however, it's obvious Altamont fashioned the it from an existing grip intended for another revolver, probably a J frame.

I emailed Hogue, no grips for the K6, however, was told they are looking into it.

By now you know about the K6 3" barrel. The grip appears to be the same size as the Altamont grip I purchased.

I am totally disappointed that Kimber did not see this coming. I am fully aware that concealment is the purpose for the small grip, however, not one shred of confidence do I have if the grip cannot afford a constant purchase for my hand. until a larger grip comes along the K6 will be a safe queen. I shall carry my S&W Shield.

I must stress that this is my opinion, however, it seems that I am not alone in asking for a larger grip. it seems to be the rule rather than the exception.

I like the looks of the grips on the 3” K6, they remind me of the Miculek grips, only smaller. Kimber doesn’t appear to have any in stock though.

I was watching one review from Shot, and the rep described them as “3-finger grips”
