A question for TLE Revolver owners

I'm considering the purchase of a 3" TLE and am wondering if the grip on the TLE's allows you to get you entire hand on it without your "pinkie" finger hanging off the end. In other words,are the G10 grips on the TLE models slightly longer than the other models? Thanks.

I have very large hands (I'm 6'6") and have no problems with the grips being too small on my TLE Ultra.

He's asking about the K6 TLE (revolver) not the Ultra TLE (1911).

I didn’t even know there was a K6 TLE. I just looked it up and it’s a nice looking revolver.

I'm going to guess and say, yes your pinkie will hang off.

No apologies necessary, you posted your question in the "Kimber Revolver" forum.

I just got a 3" TLE with a G10, the pinky indeed hangs off.

But the K6 Control Core grip that also just arrived has a wonderful pinky indent. The grip covers the backstrap nicely, and adds front to back width. I am definitely more accurate with the Control Core grip.

I'll be keeping the Control Core grip on it.
