Editors’ Picks 2019: Kimber EVO SP (CS) Pistol

posted on April 8, 2019

Kimber is no stranger to the concealed-carry market, with current offerings including no fewer than 17 Ultra variants (the company’s version of the Officer Model 1911) as well as the Micro line of .380 ACP- and 9 mm Luger-chambered pocket pistols. But all of the above follow the same formula of single-action triggers and hammer-fired operation, which makes the company’s 2019 introduction of the EVO SP, a double-action-only, striker-fired subcompact 9 mm something of a departure for Kimber. Feeding from single-stack magazines with a capacity of seven rounds, the sleek little handgun measures just 6.1" long and 4" tall with a 3.16", deeply crowned barrel, while weighing a svelte 19 ozs. The EVO SP will be offered in four models at launch—from the relatively spartan Two-Tone to the more fully featured Custom Shop (CS) model—but all feature stainless steel slides over aluminum frames, and ship with tritium night sights. kimberamerica.com
