    I was looking at these today. I am interested in the 3 inch model.They had one with a hammer and one without.I am wanting the one without a hammer.On that revolver the cylinder was really hard to unlatch and their was very little space between the cylinder and the frame.The one with the hammer seemed fine.For $850.00 i want a revolver that doesn't have problems from the start.Is this a common problem for the kimbers?Thanks

    I’ve owned my kimber k6s DC for close to 2yrs I’m thinkin. I posted a review/comparison thread around here somewhere. I’ll try to find it. I absolutely love mine. Yes it has less gap in about every spot. I have no issue opening mine. I can push the button with my thumb and open it with a flick of my wrist.

    I picked up a K6S TLE, the 3" DAO without the external hammer, a few weeks ago. The salesman handed it to me and 30 seconds later I was reaching for the credit card. The TLE is really well made. It is hard to unlatch the cylinder, but I expect that to work itself out with use. My wife really likes it too, but will need .38 Special.
    What I don't have is any ammo for it. At least a revolver is perfect for dry firing practice.

    Why not stick with one that's tried and true. S&W 3in model 13 or 65.

    Cowcatchers old thread has plenty of pictures.Also 04l, do you need a picture to know if you own or have owned a kimber revolver? If you don't own or haven't owned a kimber revolver or know someone who does then your contribution to this thread is worthless.

    I haven't been able to find a S&W 13 or 65 without a hammer from the factory.
