My gun is just what!!! You can call me names but leave my horse...err pistol alone.45_THUD said:I think CDP of any size is
1). Alloy frame
2). Frame is coated with "proprietary" Teflon finish (which is just like everyone else's proprietary teflon finish
3). Slide is Stainless
4). Reliability package
5). melted profile (dehorned)
Your compact is just that.....compact. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Pretty much correctomundo. Yes, the triggers may be different... one has two holes and the other has three... that's it. The guts are essentially the same. Your friends is not blued, it's black anodized. The $300 difference is only what you can see... front strap checkering, grips, night sights and carry "melt" (that looks like it's produced from a Play-Doh mold )... which may well be worth the cash. I'm not so sure you could pay a 'smith to do all that work and add those parts for under $300.plunker said:So the CDP is exrenal trimmings. There is no upgrades on the internal parts (Triggers etc..) I like the looks of my friends which is blue frame ,ss slide, wood grips and night sites. But not for $300. more than I paid for my "just a compact"
When did Kimber begin to add stippling (or checkering) to the bottom od the trigger guard? Mine Pro CDP II is from 2003 and it does not have it (not that I need it, just curious)Diablo said:The CDP stands for Custom defense pistol.
3. Additional stippling on the frame. Kimber adds it on the bottom of the trigger guard and on the front of the grip frame...where your fingers grip. This will enhance your ablity to keep a grip on the gun...especial with sweaty or we hands.
