Manufacturer’s Description

All CDP pistols have 30 lines-per-inch checkering on the front strap and under the trigger guard for a positive grip with wet or cold hands. Standard features include ambidextrous thumb safety, an aluminum trigger, low-profile three dot (green) night sights and a Carry Bevel treatment that rounds and blends edges so they cannot snag on clothing or holsters.

CDP pistols are made entirely in the Kimber Custom Shop, and are chambered in the powerful .45 ACP. The Ultra CDP II is also available in 9mm. Other features include a match-grade barrel, stainless steel slide, double diamond rosewood grips, a 7075-T7 aluminum frame with KimPro II finish and Carry Melt treatment for rounded and blended edges.

  1. I specifically wanted the 4 inch barrel and shorter grip of the compact model. This is a beautiful gun.
    It’s fun to shoot too! It shoots so well it makes a newby like me feel like I can shoot (not really). I’ve sent thousands of rounds down range as long as it is brass cased ammo. This thing hates aluminum cased ammunition, it will eventually jam.

    Bought this to ‘carry’ but it’s really to big to carry normally. This is a winter gun where it can be hid under a lot of clothing. I like the N82 holster for this gun, its very comfortable.

    One issue so far, the ambidextrous safety snapped in half during one range session. I noticed that the safety material looked like a cheap investment casting, disappointing…
    The good part, Kimber took care of it quickly and without hassel.

    Be the first one to like this.
