Was looking at it. Six shot .357... what's not to like? Seriously though, I thought it wasn't' that much different than my SP101. The extra shot would be nice, but it cost way more. It seemed well made and designed. I still may snatch it up...maybe.

Hate to be the naysayer in the group, but I would pass. Of all the people I know who have purchased a Kimber handgun they all had to be sent back and sometimes more than once to get them to work. Yes I know this is statistically insignificant sampling and there are those who have had no issues, but for me there are too many proven revolvers out there. Such as a S&W or a Ruger to take a chance on it.

I'm in the boat where every Kimber I've owned has been flawless......   I handled a K6S and was not impressed.

I handled one the other day finally and I actually was impressed.  I do like six shots and no hammer.  Not sure which way I will go.  Trigger felt nicer than the S&W they had there too.

It's slightly larger than a j-frame. J-frames are the upper limit for pocket carry for me. That's the reason I stick with them over LCRs. 

The 6-shot advantage it has not got over .32 caliber j-frames and LCRs, unless you use full-house .357 loads. Many will buy a .357 and shoot .38s. .32 magnum cartridges can do that and more.

I carry a 432PD. Considering how hard the 432PDs are to get, I could probably turn it over into a K6s. Not gonna happen.

Colt will have some competition for the K6s coming out this year, btw.
