NRA Gun of the Week: Kimber K6s Revolver

posted on July 22, 2017

This week’s NRA Gun of the Week is an innovative revolver from an unexpected maker. Kimber’s K6s is the double-action snubby no one saw coming, and despite being the first wheelgun from the renowned maker of 1911s and bolt-action rifles, it is really a refined design. Chambered for .357 Mag., the K6s sports a 2” barrel, a set of good, low-profile sights, a very portable overall weight of just 23 ozs., and one of the best DAO triggers we’ve tested in some time—all the ingredients for a great concealed carry revolver. American Rifleman's Christopher Olsen takes a closer look at the K6s Stainless in this week’s NRA Gun of the Week video.
