Kimber Mfg., Inc. announced the launch of its newest firearm platform: the Kimber K6s revolver.

The Kimber K6s is the world's lightest small-frame six-round .357 Magnum revolver, and it brings an unmatched level of performance and shootability to concealed carry applications.

The Kimber K6s' small frame, two-inch barrel and 1.39 inch diameter cylinder are machined from stainless steel for superior integrity, strength and resistance to the elements.


The Kimber K6s offers other important design features, such as: a smooth match-grade trigger that creates confidence while ensuring accuracy; an internal hammer and edges that are rounded and blended to help prevent a hang up when the revolver is removed from concealment; superior ergonomics and grip design that creates an extremely shooter-friendly experience; and an all stainless steel construction weighing in at 23 ounces.

"The K6s is truly a groundbreaking revolver, designed specifically for the concealed carry market, and keeping in-line with the Kimber tradition of manufacturing custom shop quality firearms at production quality prices," said Richard Kirk, Kimber's director of marketing and communications. "This revolver is a result of input from our consumers who wanted more in a small-frame wheel gun. Our engineers and designers answered these requests by pushing the envelope to create the lightest and most comfortable six-round .357 Magnum revolver ever offered."

The Kimber K6s will initially be offered in three models; the K6s Stainless, K6s Stainless (LG) and a Limited K6s First Edition.

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”
