Kimber Introduces 2017 Mid-Year K6s Revolver Line Extensions

YONKERS, N.Y., July 10, 2017 — Kimber Mfg., Inc., a leading American firearms manufacturer, today announced the expansion of its popular Kimber® K6s™ revolver product line to include three (3) new variants – K6s DC (Deep Cover), K6s CDP (Custom Defense Package), and K6s Stainless 3”. The K6s is a premium small-frame snub-nose revolver chambered in .357 Magnum.

Introduced in January 2016, the Kimber K6s is the world’s lightest small-frame six-round .357 Magnum revolver, and brings an unmatched level of performance and shootability to concealed carry applications. The K6s revolver’s weight starts at 23 ounces and offers a compact ergonomic frame and 1.39-inch diameter cylinder, all machined from the finest stainless steel for superior integrity, strength and resistance to the elements. Additional features include an internal hammer, smooth match grade trigger and edges that are rounded and blended to prevent snags on clothing or holsters.

The three new 2017 mid-year K6s models offer details and features combined in a variety of purpose-driven configurations. The K6s Stainless 3” features a 3-inch barrel, low-glare brushed stainless frame finish, large smooth walnut grips and white 3-dot sights. The K6s DC wears a stunning smooth black DLC finish, ergonomic black G10 grips and low-profile tritium 3-dot night sights. The K6s CDP is complete with Kimber’s signature Carry Melt™ treatment that further rounds edges for snag-free carry, a smooth black DLC finish on the frame and brushed stainless barrel and cylinder and small parts, checkered ergonomic rosewood grips, while boasting a set of low-profile tritium 3-dot night sights.

“K6s set the bar for quality in production revolvers when we launched the platform last year,” said Winslow Potter, Kimber’s director of product management. “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.”

The new 2017 mid-year K6s revolver models will be available at Kimber Master Dealer locations across America in the coming weeks. The suggested retail price is $899 for K6s Stainless 3”, $1,155 for K6s DC, and $1,155 for K6s CDP.
