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. DETAILED SPECS: Caliber: .45 ACP Features: Entirely built in the Custom Shop for enhanced concealed carry. Carry melt treatment rounds and blends edges to avoid snagging on clothing or holsters. Blackened aluminum frame with 30 lines-per-inch checkering contrasts with the premium aluminum trigger, stainless steel slide and satin ambidextrous thumb safety. Hand-checkered, double-diamond rosewood grips and low profile Tritium night sights finish these elegant carry pistols. Specifications: Height (inches) 90° to barrel: 4.75 Weight (ounces) with empty magazine: 25 Length (inches): 6.8 Magazine capacity: 7 Ambidextrous thumb safety Carry melt (frame & slide) Recoil spring (pounds): 18 Frame: Material: Aluminum Finish: Matte black anodized Width (inches): 1.28 Frontstrap checkering (30 LPI) Checkering under trigger guard (30 LPI) Slide: Material: Stainless steel Finish: Satin stainless steel Barrel: Steel match grade Length (inches): 3 Twist rate (left hand): 16 Ramped Sights: Meprolight Tritium 3-dot night, fixed Radius (inches): 4.8 Grips: Rosewood double diamond Trigger: Premium aluminum match grade Factory setting (approx. pounds): 4-5 Suggested Retail Price: $1255.00 Ultra CDP II™ .45 ACP

    This is by far the tightest, most accurate 1911 pistol I have ever fired. Right out of the box, this weapon worked flawlessly. With all of its custom features as standard, there was nothing to modify or adjust. It is extremely light and very controlable. It has digested all carry ammo I have put thru it. It is a little finicky on the frangible range bullets we use to qualify, but any other hollow-point, round nose, hot load or standard load gives it no problem. A top-shelf weapon.

    Extremely accurate out of the box. You really have something in your hand when you hold this piece. Does have problems (stove pipes) if you try using reloads for practice and qual. 9Small dept. and funds were LLOOWW. Golden Saber rounds shoot very well. Easy disassembly for cleaning. Little recoil easy mag release access. Carry a kimber as backup also. GREAT WEAPON well worth the money you spend.

    Excellent pistol. Mine functions flawlessly with all different types of ammo. It is my primary off duty weapon. Shooting off a bench at 25 yards it performed with a ¾ inch group. I would recommend this pistol to anyone.

    Do you remember the first car you ever bought? Well think of that and then think of the first date you had in that car. Am I setting the mood for you at all? I will remember this experience for the rest of my life.

    I have this model's great great grandfather. It is my primary off duty weapon smaller than my g-27. .45 ACP do I need to say more? I've fired several hundred rounds, not as much or as freuquent either and each time..... Bull's eye. Havn't had ANY malfunctions....

    This gun is an absolute dream!!!! I love this gun and shoot it all the time. I have no other gun in my safe that can even come remotely close to being as accurate. It boasts a hefty price but I'm a firm believer in getting what you pay for.

    This gun is small enough to hide anywere, consistant trigger pull unlike my single/duble USP I were on my duty belt. If I could just keep my wife away from it. LOL

    Had one for a period, wish I would have never sold it. But partner needed it cheap since he needed small gun for wife. Then he promtly sold it for more then I sold it to him for. Learned my lesson, don't always jump to help a partner all the time.

    Great weapon! I bought mine six months ago. I've put about 2000 rounds through her without a single problem. A little expensive but you can't put a price on quality like this. Never leave home without it!

    I sold my Glock 22 and Sig P239 to get this one. Glad I did. Perfect size and weight for concealed carry, and very accurate.

    I have an Ultra Carry II the all black colored one. Very accurate back up gun. I carry it off duty all the time love it. I would carry a full size on duty if allowed.

    I had one and sold it after several returns to Kimber ..Not a very dependable Gun... Figured 1911s were what they were rumured.. Then purchased a Wilson What a difference followed by a Nighthawk No comparison to the Kimber... Maybe It was just a bad one??? Now I would not carry anything other than the 1911's

    This gun is awesome. Just aim and squeeze the trigger. This gun surprises people how easy it operates and the accuracy blows my glocks out of the water.

    I purchased this weapon because of Kimber's reputation, how light weight it is, and because it just feels good in my hands. Sadly, I have had a number of failures to feed. I guess it is due to the light weight/strong recoil of the weapon and my not keeping my wrists locked tight enough. Still, I have been actively shooting .40 Glocks and Sigs and a .45 Cal Springfield 1911 for years without a significant limp wrist/failure to feed problem. It is kind of frustrating to have spent that much money on a weapon that isn't totally reliable.

    I wanted a compact 45 that did not weigh me down but not shoot like a cheap toy. I bought the Kimber on reputation and have not been disappointed. What a sweet little weapon! I have put about 600 rounds of various bullet weights and styles through this gun with no problems what so ever. I just have the standard sights so I did not expect great accuracy beyond 15 feet or so but this one is as accurate as my 6-inch 357 Dan Wesson out to about 100 feet. I cannot find anything I do not like about it.

    i had one of these about 4 years ago. I bought it as an off duty carry and was very disappointed. The gun continually failed to extract or would double feed (almost every third to fourth shot). I sent it back to Kimber and they said they fixed it. It worked fine for the first two magazines and then the same problems occurred again. Kimber told me it was the ammo I was using but when I told them I had put nothing but Federal and Winchester through the gun they said I had not allowed for the break in period. I told them I had well over 500 rounds through it and they had no answer. I since sold the gun and bought a Springfield. I have never had a problem with the Springfield and would recommend that gun to anybody. After this experience I will probably never buy another Kimber.

    I bought one with the Crimson Laser grips and love it, It has performed perfectly straight out of the box. I use it for conceal carry. Just wish it was double action.
