Feature Article: Kimber K6s

For those wheel gun folks, there's a feature length article on the new Kimber K6s in the March 2019 American Rifleman Magazine.

The piece includes the new K6s Deep Cover and the Stainless 3".

As we're all NRA members here, you've all got the magazine.....right?

(My revolver niche is S&W, but thought some here may find it interesting.)

Read it and liked what I read, but the MSRP is crazy high!

My K6S just passed the 600 round mark, and I couldn't be happier. Looking forward to see what that article has to say.

Meant to add in my earlier reply that it's worth every cent, and in any case, the model they profile is the tricked out K6S with tritium sights.

I got my gun for $680 out the door, though it was one of the first 6000 made and has the black-ramp front sight. It was purchased by me used, though barely. I think the first owner didn't like it and maybe put a dozen magnums out the tube.

It came to me at a gun show from a shop that sells there; had original paperwork, box, Kimber soft case, even the oil and Kimber clear sticker!

You can look to pay $700 or more new for any quality revolver from Ruger's Match Champion line, the new Colts, or S&W Performance Center. And none of them quite matched the trigger or fit and finish of the Kimber. It's my first Kimber but unlikely to be my last one.

For those who are not subscribers, the March 2019 digital edition can be read here. Flip through pages just like the magazine, photos and all.
