Default Kimber K6S

I see that Buds now has the Kimber K6S. I like the looks of the gun and hoping that Buds would get it in at a fair price but they Want $899 for the thing which is a big $20 below full retail. No way am I paying that for it. Around $700 I may pull the trigger but if it never gets down to that price range then I never will own one.

They have been on GB selling for $775 (standard model). As this gun is delivered to more suppliers it may drop into the $700+ range. It depends on how long one wants to wait to save a few dollars. I have and one with lasergrips and I find it to be a very well made firearm and being about the same size as a 640 and having one extra round, this was a no brainer for me. I have a few hundred rounds downrange and it now has become my primary carry gun.
My net cost from GB delivered and transferred was almost identical to my 640pro with LG350 grips added.

I had the opportunity to handle one last week. Evidently one is part of the package for "Friends Of NRA" dinners. It is definitely bigger and heavier than a 640, but appears to be very well made, and it had absolutely the smoothest trigger pull I have felt in a long time. It wasn't necessarily light, but was very very smooth. As far as I am concerned, it has the Kimber pricing (25% more than they are worth), just like all Kimbers.

Hows about you shop around. Buds isn't the only store

In my area the number arriving is much smaller than the demand, so no one is even considering lowering prices. They fly out the door at list ....

640Pro, K6S, Ruger SP101 3"
Kimber and 640 both at 23oz. Ruger obviously heavier.

I handled a K6S today. It felt good in the hand and had an amazing trigger pull. It seemed well made but the cylinder release button looked like it may be a stamping. Expensive but probably a good revolver.
