Brand new to the forum, and wanting to purchase my first kimber. The question is alloy frame or steel? Debating between the eclipse or CDP in 4" bbl. It will be used for defence,occasional concealed carry and just plain plinking. :confused:

It may be a little heavier, but I prefer the durability of a steel frame. I also just prefer the looks of the Eclipse

If you're carrying it a lot - alloy. If not, steel. My carry gun has a lightweight frame and it makes a difference.
Definitely second that....I carry Tactical Pro or a SW1911sc. Both alloy frames. I do have Combat Commanders and the difference is dramatic for allday carry.
