Wheelguns are inherently attractive weapons. It’s hard to make an ugly one (possible, but difficult), and even the ugly ones have some charm to them.
Of all the revolvers currently being produced, the Kimber K6S DASA Target has to be one of the best looking (the new Python might also be tied for that first spot with the new K6S Target). The K6S Target is a 4-inch take on the K6S DASA. Kimber dropped this one on us at SHOT and it’s a beautiful gun.
The 4-inch barrel will most certainly provide a more pleasant .357 Magnum experience, as well as a substantial boost in the round’s performance. The grip is extended to comfortably fit your whole hand on the gun.
They’ve stretched the snub nose size of the K6S DASA into a full-sized fighting revolver with the K6S Target. The trigger is fantastic in both double-action and single-action modes. The sights are also an excellent addition. The front sight is a high visibility fiber optic and the rear is full-sized and adjustable.
The K6S DASA Target feels very well balanced, a bit on the heavy side, but very comfortable. The front and rear sights are an excellent combo and the gun points and feels great in the hand. I was a bit more impressed with the K6S Target than any other K6S model.
The K6S DASA Target weighs 25.5 ounces and is 8.62 inches long overall. The gun holds six rounds of .357 Magnum and the added size would make it a very competent self-defense firearm or a good woods gun.
The K6S has an MSRP of $989 and this is what Kimber has to say about their new K6S Target model.
The K6s (DASA) is next evolution of the Kimber revolver product line that takes the acclaimed K6s system and outfits it with a double and single action trigger mechanism. The platform maintains the benefits of the original K6s such as the outstanding double action trigger pull, compact envelope, and six shot capacity but with the added advantage of a single action trigger. The 4″ Target model features an extended three finger grips for superior comfort and a target adjustable rear sight for pinpoint accuracy with any loading.
