Those of you who have Kimber revolvers how do you like them?

I've handled Kimber revolvers but haven't gotten to shoot one. How do those of you have them like them?
Sorry for spelling in title.

I do not have one, and have never shot one.

But the impression that I got when checking one out at a store, was something on the order of a boat anchor. Heavy and overbuilt.

I have a K6S that I carry. It's very similar to the S&W 640 but with a better trigger out of the box. Don't consider it a boat anchor by any means. It's a well built, reliable, great shooting revolver!

I have a K6s as well and agree with MKC 911. It's pretty accurate for a snubbie and has a better than average trigger. I had Milt Sparks make me a holster for it and it carries nicely in that PMK.

Have a K6s and love it. Great trigger, good sights, and excellent fit and finish

Not heavy at all. Sometimes forget I have it. Nice sights and I would have bought another with adjustable sights but I am going to save money for a Python.

I handled one at my LGS. Double action was very smooth. I just saw they’re going to be offering a 4 inch target model with adjustable sights. I’m interested in that since I’m prohibited to carry where I live. Between the target k6 and new python, I think I’m going to be broke.

Isn't the KS6 more on the order of the size of a S&W J frame but with 6 shots?

Bigger than a J. Much beefier. It's actually closer to a beefy K frame.

I think I'd rather a Colt King Cobra for what that thing costs. I'm sure it's a fine revolver, but it's French, and the aesthetics just don't do it for me.

K frame HKS and Safariland Comp II’s work fine with it. So we know about what size the chambers are, but it does indeed look a smidge thicker in other places.

I had the dao 2” for a while. The trigger was awesome, but with my large hands and that small grip I couldn’t stand to shoot 357 magnums out of it and I really preferred da/sa. When they released the da/sa with the longer grip in 2019 I was sure I was going to get one... but then I found a new King Cobra for substantially less and liked the trigger so I went with that one instead.
Still would like to get a da/sa 3” K6S at some point, though.

Mrs Schlitz has a K6 that Iíve gotten to shoot several times & itís a sweet revolver. At 23 oz empty 357 rounds are a handful. Iíve tailored some light 38 Special loads with 158 gr plated flat points in 357 brass that are very accurate & pleasant to shoot. My digital trigger pull gauge shows a consistent 7lb pull thatís as smooth as any double action Iíve ever got my hands on so far. itís only 1.39Ē thick & would CC easily.

I have the 3" DAO. One of the best triggers I have ever seen on a revolver. Take that back, the best. The sweet spot between J and K frames.
