Kimber Adds more K6s Revolvers & a NEW Royal II Texas Edition

Royal II Texas Edition

Kimber rolls out summer edition firearms every year which usually means more unique or exotic colors in existing models. For the summer of 2017, they pitched the industry a curve ball. Kimber announced 3 new K6s revolver models and a Royal II Texas Edition that will be limited to 800 firearms.

All 4 of the new pistols can be seen below with their associated MSRPs.

Royal II Texas Edition

Kimber 2017 Mid-Year Releases

All of these new pistol models look pretty desirable. The big question is, are you a revolver lover? Or a pistol fan?

The Royal II Texas Edition is the biggest headliner being as only 800 will be produced. A special serial number has been designated for these firearms which will lead with the letters “TXEB.” With the flag of Texas on one panel of the bonded ivory grips and the 1835 motto of “Come and Take It” mirrored on the opposite side, it definitely embodies the Lone Star state. The scroll engraving, deep bluing and polished flats give it quite a bit of curb appeal. The only unappealing feature about the gun is the MSRP of $1,633.

The 3 new revolvers all offer something unique and new to the K6s platform. The K6s Stainless (3″ Barrel) obviously offers the shooter a longer barrel; thus, longer sighting radius to extend the reach and accuracy of the K6s. The K6s DC sticks with the standard 2″ barrel and goes the route of more discreet carry. With Carry Melt edges, smooth G-10 grips, night sights and a complete DLC finish it is everything you would expect on a non-attention grabbing carry piece to have. Finally, the K6s CDP exhibits more curb appeal, but also the utility of a good carry revolver. Similar to the K6s DC, you have the Carry Melt edges, night sights and DLC finish. To add a little more style, it features a diamond checkered rosewood grip and stainless accents on the barrel, cylinder and cylinder release button.

The MSRPs of these new K6s revolvers flutter anywhere fromĀ $899 – $1,155.



The outdoors, fitness and anything related to firearms are my passions. I am a S&W Armorer, Glock Armorer, reloader and am coping with an addiction to classic S&W and Colt revolvers (by buying more revolvers). I’ve been a guest writer for Sierra Bullets and love long walks to the gun range.

    Engravings… Gives you no tactical advantage whatsoever.
    But these are some fancy revolvers. Pretty good.

    The 3″ at least should have an exposed hammer, aside from that though…very nice.

      That would be a whole different gun. It would need new engineering.

      The reviews I’ve read suggest that it is a very awesome DA trigger. DA really is not hard to adjust to, unless the pull weight is too high.

    If I see one more thing with “Come And Take It” plastered across it im gonna puke. And I live in Texas.

    But I like the K6.

    • Jared Vynn

      I like the 3″ but not the price. I can get a S&W for a little less or even cheaper a Ruger.

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        Kimber buyers dont worry about dumb stuff like “pricing”.
        I know a guy (probably shouldnt be allowed to own guns) who buys up Sigs and Kimbers and doesnt even know how to shoot them or break them down and clean them.

        He bought a fancy a– “black rifle” and actually asked me if it shot both 5.56 and 7.62 without a barrel change…..

        But they do make some nice guns. Maybe I can afford one someday.

        • Jared Vynn

          I traded a nice AR I built for a Kimber Custom II, it has nice sights that don’t snag when concealing but otherwise I prefer my Ruger.

          I like how many Kimbers look, but just can’t justify the cost at this point. Some day maybe I can, but I got a cabin to finish building first.

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            A Kimber will be a purchase after ive taken care of everything else in my life.

        • Marcus D.

          My Pro Carry II, one of their low end models, cost me about $700, and I am pretty sure, eight years later, that they still go for that. For an American assembled 1911, that’s kind of at the lower end, with many models going for $800 to $1200 for Remington, Springfield, Ruger, and Sig, and of course, many much much more. Heck, the Springfield Milspec model goes for between $600 and $690, $800 or more for the stainless version.

    I am not sure I’d want NY written anywhere on a gun I’d buy.

      Lately, Oregon and NY are a tossup

      • Paul Epstein

        Considering how few laws Oregon has concerning guns despite having Dem leadership for most of the time I’ve been alive- why on earth are you saying we’re a ‘tossup’ like NY? No mag restrictions, no assault weapons classification, no restrictions on NFA weapons, ‘shall issue’ concealed carry.

        Literally the only things to complain about are the lack of CCP reciprocity for other states, and requirements to do background checks for private gun sales. Are you that butthurt about those that you’re comparing us to NY state, one of the most restricted places in the country?

        • The Mystic Seer

          The NY and OR 2016 general election results were almost the same. And with bills like SB719 passing with ease, your doomed.

  • Harry’s Holsters

    I really like the look of that 3 inch K6. Wish I could find a K6 locally to check out.

  • mazkact

    As a Texan I have to say that the Yonkers,NY roll stamp kills this for a BBQ gun. HELL NO. Y’all remember those Pace Picante sauce ads……………”get a rope”.
    I’ve read all the reviews and stories on the K-6. Admittedly I’ve never handled one. I do know that I can buy two S&W 442’s or 642 and install Wilson combat springs in them then carry two of them for the same money as one K-6. I’m sure the K-6 is a fine piece but is it twice as good as the 442/642 ? I carry one 442 but as far as NY goes a NY reload might be cool.

  • Madcap_Magician

    The cult of the 3″ six-shooter has always been vocal, but I never guessed that KIMBER of all companies would be the one to bring such a gun back to production.
