Coming out of right field (it’s even less expected) from Kimber this week is the K6s. It’s a 6-shot, DAO, .357 revolver with a shrouded hammer designed for the concealed carry market. Also new for 2016 is the MICRO in 9mm. Previously offered only in .380, Kimber has expanded their line of lilliputian 1911s adding the larger caliber, with nary a change to its overall dimensions. More photos and details follow . . .
The K6s is an all stainless steel revolver with a 1.39″ diameter cylinder, which Kimber claims is the smallest .357 Mag cylinder out there. She has a 2″ barrel, and a smooth double-action-only (DAO) trigger with a pull weight around 10 lbs. Instead of the normal forward-sliding cylinder release, the K6s’ is a push button similar to the magazine release on a semi-auto pistol but smoother and nicer.
The K6s weighs 23 ounces, is 6.62″ long, 4.46″ tall, and 1.39″ wide. Rubber grips are on the way, but both of these examples were sporting wood.
The MICRO in 9mm holds 6 rounds in its diminutive 4.07″ height.
6.1″ long, 1.06″ wide, and 15.6 oz.

We also dug the threaded barrel and suppressor sights on the Custom TLE/RL II (TFS) available in both .45 ACP and 9mm.
