alright, let's see some of them 1911's out there... 8)
It's the Pro CDP II, the rounded edges are there for the "no snag" factor...I love it, it's a great gun.Alaskan_Viking said:That 1911 looks like a plastic toy, because the edges are so rounded
Isn't she purdy...? :-D I need to take some more pics....I think I'll do that later...Kimber Website said:The Kimber Custom Defense Package.
A handgun used for personal protection is not a good place to compromise quality. If needed, it must perform with flawless precision. Until that time, it must be easy to carry and inspire confidence during practice. There can be no justification for anything less than the best.
Made entirely in the Custom Shop, CDP pistols combine Kimber's most popular concealed carry features into the package that gave them their name. Adding these features during the manufacturing process reduces their retail cost by over $500, giving CDP pistols their incredible value.
CDP pistols are easy to carry because their 7075-T7 aluminum frames are lightweight, up to seven ounces less than steel frames but every bit as strong and dependable. Slides are machined from solid stainless steel and given a satin finish that will not reflect light.
Possibly the best feature is the carry bevel treatment. All edges of the pistol are rounded and blended by hand, leaving no sharp corners to catch clothing or dig into a holster.
All CDP barrels and chambers are match grade for accuracy. Breech faces are polished and ejection ports are lowered and flared for reliable function. Magazine wells are beveled and magazine release buttons extended for fast reloading. Low profile three dot (green) night sights are quick to target even in dim light. Positive 30 lines-per-inch checkering on the frontstrap and trigger guard belly lock the pistol in your hand. Extended ambidextrous thumb safety, checkered flat mainspring housing, and match grade Premium Aluminum Trigger are all included.
I'm extremely happy with my CDP. The barrel hood stays put when pressing on it. It's shoots great. The more I shoot it, the tighter my groups get. Now, I did purchase a CDP II with an External Extractor. I've read on a couple of forums where people have had problems with the EE set up and from what I understand, Kimber has stopped using the EE's. I have had No problems what so ever with mine. The only issue I've had is the slide locking back with ammo still in the mag. I'm not sure if it's me hitting the slide stop with my thumb while shooting and causing the slide stop to go up and catch, or the bullet is hitting the inside of the slide stop causing it to lock back. It's only happened a few times... I just ordered a Wilson Combat "Bullet Proof" slide stop... just in case. Anyway, It's a great gun. I highly recommend it.CharlieinKansas said:JS, I have been considering strongly a PRO CDP II. Did yours have a tight slide and did the barrel hood stay put when you pressed on it? How does she shoot? Anything close to a 5"?
Well, in the past month, I've seen this come up on 2 or 3 other forums several times (I think even 1 time here). So far, it's turned out there everyone WAS hitting the slide release themselves while shooting. So, that may be it. But, either way, hope ya fix it.js said:[ I'm not sure if it's me hitting the slide stop with my thumb while shooting and causing the slide stop to go up and catch, or the bullet is hitting the inside of the slide stop causing it to lock back.
