Getting Cold Feet
I didn't like the K6S revolver at first, then the more I looked at it the more it grew on me. Do I own a .357 revolver? several. Do I need another? No. But I thought it might be cool to own a Kimber revolver.
I am losing my warm fuzzy for the K6s.
I think we have had more posts about problems with the K6 than we have had positive posts, now I know there are not a lot of real owners/members here yet. I believe the recent post about the cylinder locking up is about the third complaint of the same problem. That is troubling to me, yes, it's a brand new gun and I expected minor complaints but not these issues that make the revolver not function. What is going on with our beloved Kimber Firearms. No matter how much I would like to at the moment I can't buy a K6s thinking it may only fire 12 or 6 or no rounds at all.
This past year I bought several Smith & Wesson revolvers (some for less and some for more money) than a K6s Kimber and all of the Smith's were probably at least 25 years old or older they all fired 50 to 100 rounds or more without any kind of malfunctions.
I guess what I'm saying is (for now) if I get the urge to spend up to $1,000 bucks for a revolver, I'll be spending it on a pre-lock Smith & Wesson. JIMO
