    Yes Kimber replaced the Eclipse with the CDP at my request. I felt more comfortable with the ramped bbl (the Eclipse doesn't have one) plus after all the crap I think an upgrade was deserved . And yep the holster is a Brommeland and it is a beautiful piece of work.

    That's a good looking piece. The barrel's a little short for my taste, but that's just me.

    One of my favorites to carry! You did good on that one and saved some weight to boot!

    Hey that holster looks familiar :) Nice grips too. The Eclipse had tons of problems with FTF's and FTE's. Kimber attmepted to fix it 3 times with no luck. So they replaced it.

    Believe me I'de rather the other 2" as well but I can't conceal a full size 1911. At least I dont think I can.
