Hogue Beavertail Grip for my K6S

I recently purchased the K6S.

Why I "needed" another short barreled revolver I will never know...but that is another story.

I really like the gun but some ammo stung my old arthritic hands in the small K6S. 357 mag was a tad too much.

So I put a Hogue Beavertail Grip sleeve meant for the Shield 9/40, Ruger LC9/EC9 on the Kimber K6s.

Put around 40 rounds of various 38 spcl and +p through the gun this am and felt an immediate difference and a great improvement in my accuracy with the Hogue grip. Tried 12 rounds of Gold Dot 135 Gr 357 magnum and that was very tolerable.

However, I have several brands of 38 spcl being shipped and will find an ammo that is to my liking. The 357 magnum will be used, but will be the less powerful versions of it. I have a 2.25" Ruger SP101 that seems to handle 357 magnum better. But, it ain't the guns, it is me getting old.

Now I need to order another Hogue grip for my Shield 45 to replace the one I put on the Kimber.

Welcome from Northeast Georgia. I too have the KS6, but have not taken it to the range again after my first initial trial. I need more time at the range.
