Kimber K6S DASA
The new Kimber K6S DASA (double action, single action) is the newest addition to the K6S line of revolvers featuring an added double and single action trigger mechanism. Kimber revolvers are well-known for their smooth double action trigger pull and has the most compact 6-round .357 cylinder at just 1.39” wide. The K6S DASA comes with a soft sided case, lock, and user manual.
Kimber uses all steel forged and machined parts for ultimate strength and reliability.The stainless-steel frame, cylinder, and barrel all feature a brushed finish which reduces glare. The entire gun has contoured edges making it easy to draw from your holster. The 3” barrel features an ejector rod shroud, protecting the ejector while eliminating the chance for snagging on clothing or holsters.
A steel blade white dot front sight is pinned to the barrel and accompanied by a serrated dovetailed white dot rear sight. There is a set screw in the center of the rear sight for windage adjustment and the sight edges are also contoured. The hammer and cylinder release both have clean knurling for better grip. A push button style cylinder release allows for single handed manipulation of the cylinder.
The stainless machined cylinder is the smallest 6-round cylinder ever produced making it ideal for concealed carry. An updated design on the bolt window allowed Kimber to reduce the overall width of the cylinder and is further reduced by the milled flats on the outside of the cylinder. It also features recessed chambers, and locks into the frame at both the front and rear of the ejector rod.
The trigger features a deep curve with rounded edges and a smooth face. A smooth trigger surface is ideal when firing double action by letting your finger roll across the face of the trigger instead of dragging on any serrations. Double action trigger weight comes in at 9.5-10 lbs. and 3-3.5 lbs. in single action. Kimber engineers changed the geometry of the sear, hammer, and hammer strut to achieve the legendary smooth double action found in the K6S.
Walnut laminate checkered 3-finger grip panels sandwich the serrated steel back strap. The grips are contoured as well to match the frame. The K6S DASA is available in 2”, 3”, and now 4” (new for 2020) configurations. Kimber also has a limited-edition Texas version featuring vintage scroll work and ivory G10 Texas themed grips.
MSRP on the K6S DASA 3” is $970, but you can find one from your local dealer on GunsAmerica for less.
