    Cool Is there such an animal?

    Hi! This is my 1st post here.
    I have a Kimber "Ultra Carry II" that I dearly love
    until it's time to field strip it for cleaning.
    As many of you know, it's kind of a pain in the rump
    to deassemble(at least compared to a 1911 with a bushing)
    Does anybody make a small carry style 1911 .45 that is
    easier to disassemble than the Kimber?
    Thanx!

    I have always found that 1911s w/ bull barrels were much easier to disassemble - no bushing.

    U just put a tiny piece of a clipped paperclip into a guiderod hole, then putt out the slide stop. Super easy.

    I think Kimber makes some compacts w/ bull barrels.

    I have the Kimber Ultra CDP and love it. It takes about 15 seconds to field strip it.

    Easier

    As time goes by it becomes second nature and no fuss at all with the ultra carry--the pro and compacts by KIMBER have the same take down system--at worst , just bend the end of a paper clip.

    Well I cant say about the 4" and 5" kimbers but you dont get the recoil spring assembly or barrel out of the slide on the ultras w/o the takedown tool or a paperclip.
    (at least not w/o risking damage....)

    I also don't believe he ever designed a bull barrel.
