Kimber makes a revolver?

David in MN:
In a sure sign of the coming apocalypse Kimber has released a revolver.

It's a snub nose .357 with a few different variations. But the interesting factor is that it's a 6 shot. It seems Kimber thinks Colt did it right. Maybe a little competition for S&W and Ruger with their 5 shot snubbies? Time will tell.

I like Kimber products. I own one of their 1911s and it's Kimber through and through. Overthought, overdesigned, overpriced, and accurate as hell.

They are beautiful, but one problem ....DAO, don't care for that at all.   I like the option of pulling back a hammer.

very true, i like the hammer on my ruger, but they are going after the deep concealed rugers/s&w with this.

Pass. $900 MSRP? 23 oz. empty.

Glock 43 with 6 rds loaded is just under 23 oz.

A Glock 19 empty is 23 oz. It will weigh more loaded because it carries 15 vs. 6 rounds.

.357 magnum shoots the same projectiles as .38 special. The difference between the two lies in velocity, which a 2" barrel gives up a lot. 9mm will shoot 124gr bullets about the same velocity as .357 125gr bullets in the shorter barrels. No difference.
