Looks like this model Kimber has yet to be rolled out.

I did see a 4" Combat model sold at a gun store in Michigan this past weekend.
The Target models can't be far behind...

Starting to see the 4" Target model available. Buds had them as out of stock, last price of $749, or very close to that. Now, they are in stock for $849/$825 cash price.
I'll wait a bit, I think.

After seeing the 4” Target listed for as much as $989 at various sites, while being out of stock, I decided that $825 wasn’t all that bad. I ordered mine last night.

Bud’s now has the 4” Target K6S at $780!!
When you buy from them, you get a 30 day price guaranty. It now is $45 less than I paid two days ago. I just filled out my claim for the price adjustment.
It works, I had to use it one time before.
$780 is a great price!

I have the 4inch combat. It is very nice and lighter than the S&W 686 4in which makes it great for packing. On the other hand the S&W 686 soaks up recoil better for a range gun.

Looks interesting, I enjoy my Kimber revolver, it really is a smooth gun and I like the 6th round.

Got my 4” Target model today. A bit disappointed that there were some ever so small scratches on the barrel near the frame. But, a q-tip and some flitz, a little time...4-5 minutes and all is well.
I have read that the double action pull on some of the DASA guns, isn’t as nice as that on the DAO model. Mine is!
Single action, while crisp, is a bit heavy. Haven’t measured it yet, but I’m guessing it is around 4.5 to 5.0 lbs. I will measure it and report back. Not great, but not too bad. I usually shoot DA 90% of the time. And, I suspect like all revolvers, both pulls will improve with use.
Overall, I love it.

Edit:
I just measured both pulls. DA is 10# 9 oz. And it is extremely smooth! Great, really. The SA pull (both DA and SA checked with two 5 pull averages) came in right at 4# 0.2 oz.
