Since it’s release at SHOT Show 2016, Kimber’s first line of revolvers has grown steadily, with the following year seeing the release of five new models.
Now, Kimber has announced three new K6 revolver models with concealed carry and self-defense in mind.
The DAO K6 is a line of six-round, snub-nosed, .357 magnum revolvers with weights starting as light as 23 ounces. They all feature a compact, ergonomic stainless steel frame and cylinder with an internal hammer, match-grade trigger, and edges that are rounded and blended for concealed carry.
First up is the K6 DC (Deep Cover), which sports a black DLC finish, ergonomic black G10 grips, and low-profile tritium 3-dot night sights. MSRP: $1,155.
The most visually striking of the new guns is the K6 CDP (Custom Defense Package) with its brushed stainless steel cylinder, barrel, and controls against a black DLC frame. The CDP features Kimber’s Carry Melt treatment that rounds the gun’s edges for snag-free carry and draw and it’s topped off with handsome rosewood grips and the same tritium night sights. MSRP: $1,155.
And third is the somewhat old-school looking Stainless 3-Inch K6 model with a titular 3-inch barrel, low-glare brushed stainless frame finish, and large smooth walnut grips. The gun is topped with white low-profile 3-dot sights. MSRP: $899.
“K6s set the bar for quality in production revolvers when we launched the platform last year,” Kimber’s director of product management Winslow Potter said in a release. “We work hard to ensure that we continue to raise that bar to better meet the specific applications and individual personalities of the American gun owner, and these mid-year K6s models do just that.”
