Most concealed carry handguns carry five rounds or less – there are only so many bullets you can cram into a small weapon, after all. Ammo capacity, though, is exactly what makes the Kimber K6s special, a small-frame revolver holding a generous six rounds in the wheel.
A six-round .357 Magnum snub nose, the gun is billed as the lightest ever of its kind, giving you half a dozen shots in a size that normally holds just five. In self-defense situations, that one extra round of capacity can mean the difference between survival and failure, making for quite the significant achievement in concealed carry weapons.
Measuring 4.5 x 6.6 x 1.4 inches (h x l x w) and weighing just 1.4 pounds when empty, the Kimber K6s is one compact weapon that should comfortably make its home in a pocket, waistband, or backpack pouch. Construction is all stainless steel, ensuring superior strength and resistance to the elements, with a grip design that the outfit claims enables a shooter-friendly experience. A smooth match-grade trigger should help create confidence during shooting, while rounded hammer and edges should help prevent hang ups whenever it’s removed from concealment.
Unlike most concealed carry revolvers, it doesn’t use traditional fixed sights. Instead, it’s been fitted with user-removable sights, consisting of a black pinned sight out front and a black dovetail in the rear. Other details include a trigger pull weight of 10.5 pounds, mild recoil, satin finish for the stainless steel, and gray rubber grips for comfortable handling.
Available now, the Kimber K6s is priced at $899.
