Just bought the Evo SP CS model. I was loading a mag to carry this gun for the first time. I loaded mag with Sig Sauer V-Crown JHP 124 gr. Inserted mag into gun and this ammo is a no go for this gun. I pulled the slide back to cycle and it gets stuck. It will not feed this ammo. I put in another brand and no problem. I guess Kimber Evo doesnít like Sig ammo?

You didn't mention if you had yet shot the gun before this?

Yours sure doesn't seem to anyway. As Phil said, what is your shooting history with it thus far?

My New Gun

My New Kimber EVO SP CS and Holster I bought from Kimber.

Performed great in my opinion. No hiccups. Trigger is nice, reset is about average. I don’t think it’s quite as snappy on recoil as my Sig P365 due to the extra weight of a bit heavier gun. Grip is aggressive but nice to hold on to. Sights are along the same line as as my Sig, being combat sights. As others have stated, I wish it had more capacity. My Sig P365 has a 12+1 as opposed to Kimber 7+1. Overall, it’s a great feel in your hand. Solid build, sleek and a pleasure to shoot. As far as accuracy? I always like to quote one of my favorite gun reviewers Hickock 45. “
“All guns are more accurate than we are”.
