Editor’s Choice: Kimber EVO SP Select

posted on April 26, 2020

Kimber has gained traction in the sub-compact striker-fired pistol market with its line of EVO SP pistols chambered in 9 mm Luger.

New for this year, the aluminum-frame, 3.16"-barreled semi-automatics now include models in a price range more accessible to consumers in search of a reliable and well-appointed defensive sidearm.

The EVO SP Select retains all of the distinctive features of its kin—clean trigger, interchangeable stocks and a generally snag-free design that lends itself well to concealed carry.

The Select models, though, dispense with some of the upgraded aesthetic features—such as intricately machined patterns on the slide and frame—and make use of tried-and-true white-dot sights in order to keep the price below the $600 mark.

The Kimber EVO SP Select is available in either a black or stainless finish. For more information on the new SP Select models, plus other models in the EVO lineup, visit kimberamerica.com.
