Kimber Ultra CDP II experiences

I have a NIB Kimber Ultra CDP II and would like to hear about your experiences with this pistol.
She sure is pretty but I can't force myself to take her out of the box, break her in and carry. Just too pretty!

Lube it up and go shoot 300-400 rounds of factory FMJ out of it and start CC'ing that baby! Congrats on a great gun. You're going to love it.

Congrats on the new Kimber. I got the same gun two weeks ago, so I know what you mean when you say "she sure is pretty", but like the man said, load her up and put some ammo down range. Right now I have about 250 rounds through it, so I'm about half way through my break-in period, 2 more weeks and 250 more rounds through it and she'll be ready for cc'ing.

My primary carry and has been for years. Changed out the plastic mainspring housing, took of the ambi safety for a single sided and added crimson trace.
Shoots like a dream and carries even better.
I have never found a better carry pistol and I have tried.

Mine first had an external extractor and feed like ****. Kimber changed out the slide to an internal extractor and runs like a champ now. My only complaint is the breakdown and assembly process. Its a bear and makes you want to not clean it.

That's just bonding time between you and it!

Look on You Tube. There is a video of how to break it down with no tools (pin), made it a lot easier.

Mine has been my primary CC piece for almost a year. It's VERY accurate, and has not had a single failure. It is a little scuffed up in places though...

I have a Stainless Covert I and the slide lock broke. Replaced it with an Ed Brown.

The gun still functioned with a broken slide lock. I didn't notice it until I went to put the gun back together. I pushed in on the slide lock and rotated up and it wouldn't go in. After about 10 attempts..I striped another 1911 and compared slide locks. The claw (for lack of a better term) had broken off. Other than that the gun shoots just as good as my fullsize model.
