Kimber K6S Combat 4″ DA/SA Revolver: Chronograph Results

With my search capability, these are the first recorded shots fired out of the new 2020 Kimber K6S Combat 4-inch outside of SHOT Show.

I have posted a few reviews on this channel of the K6S and the quality is very consistent and very good on all the ones I have handled. What interested me the most was using the feeler gauge to measure barrel to cylinder gap and finding to my amazement that all of them were .005″.

So what better way to test the effects of barrel length on velocity than with the same brand revolvers with equal quality.
