So I recently picked up a Stainless Raptor Pro II and took it to the range. It ran flawless with the stock Kimber mag. Was pretty accurate and the trigger smoothed up after a few rounds. I shot 200 rounds total:

50-230gr RN (reloads)
50-200gr LSWC (reloads)
50-185gr HP speer gold dots
25- 230gr WWB
25-230gr Tulammo steel

I was very pleased with the performance of the Raptor Pro and I have had my eye on the CDPs for awhile. Found an Ultra CDP II for $900 out the door.



It seems hardly used. I hope to get it out soon and will give a range report.

I have to admit - I've always had a soft spot for the CDP's. Especially the Compact CDP that's a lot like a CCO. It's where I first fell in love with the idea.

I like those! A buddy of mine had one for his daily carry for quite a while.

So what's everyones opinion on the "chopped" 1911s? I have read people say they aren't reliable but yet read about and have seen others that own them and love them.

Thanks Joe :)

I really have liked these Ultra CDPs since I have seen them. I just hope it runs as good as it looks.
It will. ;)

I had a 9mm CDP Ultra I never had an issue with.
Other than not liking reman ammo, it ran 100%....

Only sold after buying an EMP.
Eventually sold the EMP...:roll:

I'm sure you'll love it Guru..
Hope all is well over there in Alliance country....:wink:

Thanks 1L, doing well actually although trying to deal with all the traffic due to the construction on 35 is a freaking nightmare. I look forward to the day I can move further out. Hope all is well with you and your family.

I thought about getting the 9mm version but decided to get the 45. I'm having a hard time getting a 1911 in another caliber other than 45. I will say I have my eye on the Dan Wesson Guardian 9mm.

I also owned a Dan Wesson Guardian in 9mm a few years ago.
It was a sweet, sweet handgun..



I owned it a few months and realized I just didn't need it.
That was back before I was buying guns just to keep.

You need a good revolver if you don't have one.
I do love my S&W 686+ I recently acquired...
7 rounds of 357mag or 38sp goodness.





Just something to think about....:mrgreen:

Bravo Sir, that's a gorgeous gun. If I were to buy a Kimber that would be near the top of the list. Congrats!

Some suck. Some don't. My buddy obviously trusted his for his daily carry. I knew a guy that had a Para Warthog. It was not reliable. So my conclusion is it depends on the gun and the ammo.

You know I have NEVER even fired a revolver. I know, crazy right?

That is a sweet looking wheel gun for sure.

You won't go wrong with that plan. Mine is silly accurate.

Another vote for the Guardian. It's on my to-get list to match with my VBob.
