    what about the ballistics out of the smaller barrel? How much of a difference is there? Is the .45 still a freight train?

    Sounds like it is kind of hit and miss with the Kimbers and I guess I am just lucky I have a TLE and a Stainless Ultra Carry II both have not had any problems.

    I have 800 rounds through the Ultra and I shoots really well. My wife is an excellent shot, she can do a 1.5" group in the center of the target at 7 yards with almost anything she shoots. She shot my Ultra a couple of range visits ago and put 7 rounds in the center of the target, 3 of the shots went in the same hole on the target, she moved it back to 50 feet and did a 4 inch group there. This is almost as good as she is with her Glock 34 or my TLE.

    I would recommend this gun to anyone.

    I just bought my 2nd CDP II. This one is the Ultra Carry in the 3" version. I use all Wilson combat magazines. They are great little guns, but can be particular about the mags and the ammo you feed into them . Experiment a little bit and see what works best and stick with it. Good Luck!!

    I own the Kimber Ultra Carry II in stainless 45 ACP.. Over 1000 rounds and not one single problem EVER.. I also have an original Colt M1911, and quite honestly, I have a hard time deciding which one I like more.. For my every day carry though, definitely the Kimber.. Perfect size and punch for defensive carry...

    I have a Kimber Ultra Carry I and it has been on my CCW since 1998. Other pistols have come and gone but this one has always been there. I've owned only one Kimber with an external extractor and I have had no problems with it whatsoever, so I don't understand what all the hallabaloo is about. I sold my Ultra Carry II to a friend who wanted to get his CCW. Of all the 3 inch 1911s that I have owned, the Kimber is my favorite, then comes my Colt Officer's Model Enhanced.

    stretch your factory kimber mag springs 2 1/2 " works

    take your factory kimber mag and stretch the spring 2 1/2 in . and your factory mag will feed jest like a wilson mag i did and it works great 3,000 rounds so far with no problems at all

    I bought one on the Kimber reputation. The gun looked good, but was hard to rack and wouldn't feed unless I had high quality fmj ammo. When it did shoot, it was accurate with easily handled recoil. I sold it because it just didn't feel right in my hands.

    CDP Ultra II

    I share your pain in trying to decide what to get. I bit the bullett and bot the CDP Ultra II. Love it. I don't regret it one bit. Hope yours works as well as mine.

    Just bought a Stainless Ultra Carry II in 9mm. Haven't got to shoot it much, but so far, so good. It's a nice little gun. Mine has an internal extractor. My only complaint is that I wish they shipped with more than 1 magazine.

    No Problem

    I owm a Kimber SLE(stainless limited edition) it' a PRO CARRY II with a steel frame not an alloy. I have 2 Kimber mags ,1 is 7 round the other is 8. Maybe 2k rounds thru each mag and NEVER had a malfunction. not 1 FTF, not 1 fail to feed. Would trust this pistol every day, all day. maybe I'm just lucky. Later, Bill

    Kimber Pro CDP II

    I own a Pro CDP II and have shot about 400 rounds through it - it is one of the best .45's I've ever shot - never a jam - crisp trigger pull , very accurate - I love it.

    Thumbs down Kimber Ultra II quality

    Save your money.

    It's a nice gun to look at. Accuracy and precision are excellent without match and you get bragging rights because... "Hey, It's a Kimber, dude!"; but Failure to Feed & failure to go into battery have been nothing but a pain in my ______ and I surmise for quite a few others on this site. At least 500 rnds through it and still acting up!

    Put in a Wilson mag and that sort of helped; but am peeved that I had to buy a $35 mag for a Kimber...can't they put a quality mag into their own gun for the $$$$$ $ I paid?

    I later noticed the slide lock was flimsy and bouncing up just a hair and thought that might be causing the F2F's, called Kimber and got a live person (They are known for their Customer Service....very good) He sent a more robust slide lock and the problem seems to have gone away, but now about a 2% failure to go to complete battery!

    I do not trust the thing to save my life and will probably send it back to Kimber for some work.

    Finish scratches VERY easily...not pleased about that either.

    Cleaning requires the use of a leeeetle piece of bent wire (supplied with gun) to lock back the recoil spring and while yes, it can be done without...so can taking apart your car's engine with a pair of lock pliers...it makes the job easier. Just something else to fall to the bottom of my field & tool box or vanish in the rug...one more gun-thing to obsess over regarding its location in a house full of kids. It won't be long till I loose that thing...

    Save your money and get a Glock. Really. I have one of those and while that double stack mag makes it a bit fat for easy concealed carry (I can carry it though) and I doubt anyone's ever said, "Hey beautiful looking gun!"; they're simple to operate, field strip in 5 steps (or less depending on how you're counting), never fail, acceptably nice accuracy, precise and the finish is tough as nails....I've adjusted the rear sights on my G26 with a tackhammer (!) with not a scratch; but I can't pop the slide release on the Kimber without scratching it.

    With the $$ you'll save you can load up on cool stuff like a laser sight and maybe some tritiums for back up.

    .
    I agree that the magazine isn't as good as it should be - I bought 3 Wilson Mags too, but other than that I haven't had any of the problems you say you've had.

    By the way I have two Glocks and while they are great guns, they aren't any better that the Kimber.,

    I couldn't agree more - ship with more than a single mag and they need some help in the quality of their magazine department.
