I have the compact cdp which is the same gun with a .4" shorter grip. I'm exceptionally pleased with it. I paid $894 for mine a couple of months ago. Not sure about the mags, this is the first I've heard of it. As far as the frame goes, other posters here have said that it is the same frame Wilson Combat uses which I understand has a lifetime gauratee, so I'm not particularly worried about it cracking although I haven't yet felt the need to run +p ammo through it. I think it would be the rare case when +p ammo offered any significant advantage. My novice opinion of external ballistics combined with my theory of possibilities vs. probabilities. Back to the frame and WC, that's second or third hand info so don't take my word for it, just what I saw posted earlier.
