With the introduction of the Kimber K6s DASA, the company is now offering shooters single action on its revolvers. In fact, this is the first DA/SA variant Kimber has offered in its revolver line. And this thing is a beauty.

To start, the K6s DASA comes with a brushed, stainless-steel finish and checkered laminate Walnut grips. This gives the gun a neat look, fluctuating between modern and old-school styling. Additionally, Kimber rounded the edges on this .357 Magnum to reduce the potential for snags during the draw. This, of course, give the gun a blended look that just increases it attractiveness. It also comes with a knurled hammer spur, which also reduces snagging.

With two barrel lengths available — 2 inches and 3 inches — shooters can choose which six-shot version to use, whether for concealed carry, backup or home defense. While one additional shot doesn’t seem like much, it can make a difference. Especially since, 1.39-inch diameter cylinder is about the same size as many five-shot revolvers.

However, the most important feature Kimber included is the trigger. The gun has a short, smooth, no-stack, 9- to 10-pound trigger pull. This provides confidence in accuracy. In single-action mode, the K6 fires with a 3.5-pound pull.

The new K6s DASA from Kimber provide a good looking, yet practical, method of self-defense from a company known for its quality.
