    Hi all!

    I had a SA 1911 GI in OD that I loved but alas found myself needing to release it for funds...I regretted it every since....I had big plans for it

    I'm in a better place now and was considering a 3in 1911 for carry to replace my g30 for daily carry. I shot a kimber ultra carry and didnt really like the 3in too much. So I decided to go with a PRO length Kimber....

    I present my new Kimber PRO CDP II.

    Thanks! Cant wait to shoot it...it's going to take many rounds of shooting before I can trust it to replace my glock.

    Congrats! I would agree with you on that. Some people only put a magazine or two through to make sure, I like to put about 500 rounds through to make sure.

    I like the CDP's. If I were you I'd go ahead and order the Wolff recoil spring for 4" Kimber's.

    My 9mm Pro would not run with the Wolff spring. I just recently got a 45 cal Compact, so I will probably give them another try,

    My 9mm Pro runs great with the stock spring, my 45 didn't. :dunno:

    I have sold a lot of guns. There are a couple I really should have kept. Ak , hk 91 ,sig 239 and sig 220 I have more of each gun , but should have kept the spare one. I miss my glock32 as well. I have never sold a 1911. I have a springfield longslide that is perfect that I never shoot, I think of 1911s as family I guess. I had a colt twenty years sittin in the safe. Don williams built me an awesome ipsc gun on that frame and it is one of my favorites, shot a qualification course with it on saturday. Most of my guns are just stuff. A few 1911s will go to my daughter when I am gone.

    I was thinking the same thing when I saw his pic. Wasn't sure if it was just the pic because that grip looked a lot shorter.

    No, its definitely the Compact CDP, Paul.

    They have the Pro length barrel, so I think that's where the confusion was.
