Why's that? I'm leaning that way but I'm new to 1911s.

Is the SIS a series 70 Kimber? Because if so, get that one.

The SIS is like trying to hold onto teflon. If your hands are wet, sweaty, or bloody, you can forget racking the slide. Plus the slickness, there are no cocking serrations to grab, only the silly SIS letters.

Yes, the SIS has no firing pin safety and a traditional extractor.

Are you buying it just to have it? Are you looking at the railed SIS or the regular SIS model?

If it's just to have, get the SIS.

Yeah, I reckon it failed in the marketplace because they didn't come up with a "BRO" model for males.

Carry. The SIS is the ultra and the CDP2 is the pro.

I think most people have a huge hang up on the cocking serrations. I don't think they are as bad as people make them out to be. Also, the rear sight is meaty with a ledge. It was designed to be able to cock the pistol on a belt or table corner, etc, in case one hand was disabled. This can also be used to assist in racking the slide.

The SIS was available as a Pro as well, and the CDP2 can be had in an Ultra model.

BTW: It's no secret I'm selling my SIS. The only reason I'm selling it is because I bought an Ed Brown Kobra Carry, and don't need a second "Commander Size" 1911. Admittedly, the Kobra Carry is a nicer gun, but it should be, considering the price difference. I don't know where you are located, but if you are near Bristol, PA, you are welcome to handle and shoot mine, even if you have absolutely no interest in buying my particular gun.

If the SIS is a Pro, I say grab it. I've always wanted one. I would flush crown the barrel and since it has a stainless slide and frame, I would have it bead blasted. I've seen a couple of bead blasted SIS pistols and they look really cool. Having it bobtailed before the bead blasting would make it a very cool CC gun.

If it is for carry and those were my only two choices... I would not go with the SIS. If it was to add to the collection, I'd go SIS.

Because of threatened lawsuits. And they were supposed to be a special edition pistol from the get go anyway

No, the SIS is for the BROs who swing both ways and drive a Prius. :rofl:
