New for 2021: Kimber K6s DASA Target

posted on February 7, 2021
When Kimber America first launched its K6s revolver line, the guns were designed for concealed carry only and featured short, snub-nose configurations complete with low-profile sights that prevented printing and allowed for comfortable EDC. However, many consumers wanted a gun they could shoot with more precision at the range, in addition to daily carry, so Kimber expanded the lineup with its DASA Target revolver complete with a 4" barrel.

This Kimber K6s DASA Target still retains the rounded contours and sleek design of the original K6s, making it comfortable for daily carry use. However, the lengthened barrel on these target revolvers gives you an increased sight radius, so you can be more accurate and precise at longer distances than was possible with the snub-nosed CCW models. To make the most of this increased radius, Kimber outfitted its DASA Target model with target-style sights. An adjustable aperture at the rear allows you to fine-tune windage and elevation, and the fiber-optic front sight provides a bright aiming point.

Adding to the appeal of the Kimber K6s DASA Target is the addition of a hammer spur that allows you to take advantage of the gun's crisp single-action pull. CCW models of the K6s revolver were double-action-only guns to avoid adding a snag point with an exposed hammer. However, on these target models, precision accuracy at distance is possible with the short, clean pull from the single-action-enabled system. For quick shooting, the smooth, stack-free double-action pull is still available.
