Adam Scepaniak 11.12.18
Kimber has been announcing a flurry of new products leading into 2019 and the excitement that surrounds SHOT Show. This includes 4 new models of K6s revolvers with 6 variations of them total. The most exciting new model is the K6s DASA (Double-Action, Single-Action) because it is the 1st revolver Kimber has offered with a single-action trigger pull. The other models are a DC (Deep Cover) and CDP (Custom Defense Package) with a Crimson Trace lasergrip as well as a TLE finished offering. Kimber is expanding their portfolio of wheelguns pretty substantially to the delight of revolver fans. Let’s take a short dive into each of the new models!

The K6s DASA .357 Magnum is the 1st exposed hammer revolver Kimber has ever produced, and the 1st one to offer a single-action trigger pull as well. The K6s DASA will be offered in a 2″ and 3″ variation with a brushed stainless finish and walnut laminate checkered grips. The single-action trigger pull comes in at 3 – 3 1/2 Lbs while the double-action pull is a smooth, non-stacking 9 1/2 – 10 Lbs in pressure to break. Finally, the K6s is topped off with white 3-dot sights and a knurled hammer spur. This model has an MSRP of $970 for both barrel lengths.

The K6s TLE displays a finish we have all seen before on their 1911 models, but never before on a revolver. The highlights of the TLE appearance are the low-glare matte black finish paired with the green and black G10 boot grips. This model like the K6s DASA will be offered in 2019 in a 2″ or 3″ variant for shooters. It also has tritium night sights and a standard 6-round cylinder. The K6s TLE will be benchmarked at $1,020 for either barrel option.

Both of these new models are simply iterations we have seen from previous years, but with a Crimson Trace lasergrip applied to the handle. This additional value comes with a fairly significant cost increase to the consumer though. The retail price for the DC (LG) is $1,485 while the CDP (LG) punches in at $1,510. Both of these models retain their original aesthetic and utilitarian traits of tritium night sights, a DLC finish, and their own unique curb appeal.
