at least $200 higher than their competition ? Sure, they hold six rounds. Sure they have passable sights on em. I can buy a SP101 or GP100 for far less and pay a Smith to install the sights I want and do a trigger job; and *still* come out cheaper. and still come out cheaper. I can buy a new "Colt" and come out cheaper. Is there some hidden quality or something particularly remarkable about Kimber revolvers ? My experience with Kimber firearms is that they're little more than scrap waiting to be put on the "Slag" conveyor belt at the junk yard. If their quality is anything like what I've experienced in the past, a sixth shot does you no good if the cylinder locks up after the second.
