Safari Land Speed Load?

I know Kimber makes a speed loader for the K6s but has anyone found a model from Safari Land that works? Or from any other manufacturer?

I like the polymer speed loader from Safari Land because they weigh less. Thanks in advance for your help

I have seen a few articles about people taking a belt sander to the sides of a safari land speed loader to get it close enough to the side of the firearm to align the rounds into the chamber. I don't recall the model though. Other than that I don't think they make one specifically for the k6. 5 star makes a very nice one for the kimber. I have a few of them for some other revolvers and they are excellent.

Wild Ass Guess

Please note I don't own a K6S or I would check it for you. If it was me I would take a chance and buy a HKS Speedloader model number "PY-A" it's for 6 rounds of .357 and has a slimmer profile than some of the others.
All you have to lose is 10-12 bucks and it might work.

I tried a Safariland 6-shot that I had and it didnít work. I really didnít think it would, as it was for a GP-100.
I prefer Safariland for carry, as I feel theyíre more secure and quicker than the HKS. I hope they get around to making some.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Grissom, how about stopping by our "New Member Introduction" sub forum and introducing yourself to the membership?

I just bought a K6 DC with the G10 boot grip. My HKS #10 is a perfect, perfect fit. Good, as Iíve been using them for decades.

SpeedBeez K6 arrived today. Works well (within the limits of the design). I have the longer factory wooden grips on currently and clears with .38s no problem. .357s tend to go in slightly canted, but push with a little vigor and loader released cleanly and rounds went right in. Put the Crimson Trace rubber grips back on with similar results. YMMV, but I think I have found my new reload...unless or until I find an SL Variant to try.

Been using a Colt D frame Detective Special speedloader made by HKS with the blue rubber grip and it's a tight fit but work well. Practice is advised, stress will add a component to the reload equation.
