Now we are talkin’! Kimber is set to release a brand new DAO revolver to the market in March of this year. The Kimber K6s is a six-shot, stainless steel .357 Magnum wheelgun with a 2 inch barrel and internal hammer. This one is aimed center-of-mass at the concealed carry crowd.
The Kimber K6s has material milled from the revolver’s cylinder, resulting in an interesting series of alternating flats and curves. Like a Ruger LCR, the cylinder release is a push button affair. K6s’ action rotates counter-clockwise, like S&W, but unlike Colt.
With pinned front and dovetailed rear sights, I am certain the aftermarket will already be tooling up for replacement dots, tubes, and trits. Likewise for aftermarket grips. Wood, G10, and other materials should be in the works.
