Should I trade my CDP Pro II (LNIB) for a Custom Shop Pro Eclipse (LNIB)?

    Sorry to be indecisive but originally I wanted the Eclipse Pro but instead got the CDP Pro II.

    Have a guy that already has a CDP Pro but wants another one and has offered to trade me his Custom Shop Pro Eclipse (the first series of the Eclipse made in the custom shop - Not the Eclipse Pro II). Think they made about 1000 of them before going into production with the Eclipse Pro II. Help me make my decision...Would be an even trade. What do you guys think?

    While I haven't had any problem with a Series 2 gun, I would always take a S1 over the 2. I would say do whatever makes you happy.

    Totally your choice. Personally I like the CDP over the Eclipse.

    I would take the Series 1 pistol. Also Kimber doesn't have a custom shop it is just a marketing ploy.

    Then how can they do the custom work they say they can do, on customer's guns?

    Don't know who does it. Springfield has a custom shop, Kimber doesn't.

    Yes, definitely trade a CDP Pro II for a (pre II) Pro Eclipse. I'd even pay difference to get the pre II.
