When the Kimber K6s was unveiled a year ago, the industry sat up and took notice. After all, it’s not every day that a company best known for its quality 1911s decides to enter the revolver market. Building on the success of that initial release, the Yonkers, New York-based company announced that it is expanding its line of K6s revolvers to include the K6s Stainless, K6s Stainless (NS), K6s Stainless (LG) and K6s DCR (Deluxe Carry Revolver).

The four new Kimber K6s models being released this year offer details and features combined in a variety of purpose-driven configurations. According to the press release, the K6s Stainless and K6s Stainless (NS) feature a low-glare brushed stainless frame finish, black rubber grips and white 3-dot sights or 3-dot tritium night sights, respectively. Meanwhile, the K6s Stainless (LG) has black wood and rubber Crimson Trace Lasergrips, while the K6s DCR boasts a smooth satin frame finish, checkered Millennium rosewood grips and a red fiber optic front sight and black rear sight. These new variants join the K6s First Edition, which features mirror-polished stainless steel and Pao Ferro wood grips.
Each Kimber K6s weighs 23 ounces and offers a compact ergonomic frame, two-inch barrel and 1.39-inch diameter cylinder, all machined from high-quality stainless steel. The K6s also has an internal hammer, smooth match grade trigger, and edges that are rounded and blended to prevent snagging.
