    New Kimber "ReVolve" Revolver? I am not sure whether to be excited or disappointed. The rumored $899 MSRP is a bit hard to swallow.

    Looks like a S&W 640 with a weird under-lug doesn't it?

    Like a S&W 640 pro got it on with a Ruger SP101.

    I saw the e-mail but no pics till now. I think that is a stiff price myself, but it does appear to be a 357 for concealed carry, 6 holes in the email's cylinder (which was all)

    looks like Kimber's been listening to MKTing again, like they did when they reinvented the 380 Pony

    I hope their revolvers are more reliable than their 1911s . . . I think they are terribly overpriced considering this is their first try breaking into the wheel gun market

    May or June or July or August or September or who knows.
    I do appreciate the six shooter over a five shooter (Why I bought a LCR in 327) it does look nice, but I'll have to see it in person and that's for sure not tomorrow!

    I played with a couple at SHOT. The triggers were really nice as was the workmanship. I liked them. They also mentioned that this is just the start, and more variants will be coming.

    I'll keep my Ruger. Seeing the Kimber does bring ideas.
    I have considered doing a high polish, and bob the hammer. With a little trigger work, it won't be a Kimber, or a S&W. But given my smiths expertise, the final results would be very gratifying.

    It's a good looker. I'd prefer a hammer & half the cost but still a good looker cause I'm tired of cutting my fingers on "Crisp" (AKA reducing finishing cost..)

    I played with it at SHOT and it is very nice. Holding it in my hands made me not want to let go. I'll just have to remember not to pick one up when they get to dealers.

    Beautiful little revolver for $600.00! Not sure those six letters, "Kimber", engraved on the side are worth $300.00 though.

    Of course there will be those that run to get one because....It's Kimber. It's new. It's COOL looking. They love a gun that tortures their wrists/hands. And other reasons I haven't thought of. That's all great too, go for it! What ever reasons a person need to buy a gun is fine by me!

    @PlayboyPenguin
    Give us a heads up when to expect your review :)

    On a serious note. Looking at my SP101, I can envision the ability to "carve" if you will, a lot of elegance into one, if one chose that path. Would I? Hard saying.
    Someone could actually bring out some beauty in one. That, with a highly polished mirror finish, would be a stylin piece.
