What is the future of the K6?

I recently purchased a K6s and have really come to like it. It's a well thought out little revolver. It seems like the designers combined the best features of other manufacturers small revolvers into something that might be the best on the market for its intended purpose.

I've been shooting the gun quite a bit and it got me thinking....where will Kimber take the design next?

Blue steel model? Exposed hammer version? Alloy lighter weight version?

What do you guys think?

It would be great if they made a Double Action/Single Action Revolver with a larger frame.

I’m sure they’re just working on various color and finish combinations.

I acquired one of the earlier versions. I love it.

I wouldn’t mind see one in a larger frame and DA/SA. I’d also like to see the price drop.

I agree JC a price drop could influence me to give a K6 a try.

A K6M (just spit balling a model name) chambered 6 rounds of .44mag, 2" barrel could zing out the old credit card. IMO
Wussies need not purchase, they could get hurt.

I have no use for a .38/.357 mag but would like to see the K6 produced in a larger caliber. My all time favorite do it all caliber is the .41 mag but I wouldn't turn my nose up at a .45 Colt long or .44 mag.

Oh man count me in, a little larger K6 chambered in 41 Mag!! Might stop carrying my 45 and carry a wheel gun again. We can only dream.

Agreed, that's one of the many reasons I don't already own a K6S cause I already have what I consider enough .38/357 revolvers.

LOL I didn't know a person could have enough of any calibur. However my wife agrees with you.
