I've had my CDP for about 6 month's now, and have had no problems with it. Its been the most comfortable 1911 45 that I've ever owned. Easy to holster,(its lighter than I'm used to.) Also, its functioned perfectly with 4 different brands of ammo. The finishing work they did with it, the smoothing of sharp edges, the barrel lockup, and checkering of the front strap is as good as I've seen from the major Gunsmiths. All in all, a great gun.
