You've got a few options .... The Pro CDP II, Pro Tactical II, Pro Carry with Aluminum frame, etc. .... all are great guns!

Keep in mind that they don't make an exact equivalent . The Colt has a 4.25" bbl and 4" on the Kimber .
Trivial , but I felt we should clarify . :)

I can't help you... I've got the big one and the little one... a Kimber Classic and an Ultra Carry and I use both all the time. My stainless Classic for competition and my UC for daily carry.

Pro: Kimber's excellent 4" bull barrel; Full size grip for larger hands; Fits in either dedicated holsters or those made for a Commander; Uses common Gov't magazines

Con: Full size grip is more difficult to conceal when compared to the Compact; Recommended replacement cycle of the recoil spring is only 800 rounds; Loss of velocity when compared to 5" models

Pro Carry II-

Pro- Excellent gun, very reliable (mine digests Wolf, Blazer, Amerc and WWII surplus (all fed with Kimber 7 & 8 round mags) without a hitch), nicely contollable, especially considering the length and weight.

Cons- Bushingless design does require a takedown tool (piece of small wire w/ a little "hook" in the end) to strip the slide. I don't think it's a big deal, but it is something you should know before purchasing.

If the 4" bbl/ full-size grip fits your basic requirements, there are several models to choose from.

Happy Hunting!
