    My latest Carry Rig...

    As some of you might remember my post some time ago, I was trying to decide between a Kimber Ultra Carry or Ultra CDP.

    I would like to thank you all for the responses. Well, I wound up getting the stainless Ultra Carry. I had a set of XS 24/7 Standard Dot nightsights installed, which I really like. Had a few minor hiccups at first, but it is now up and running using a Wilson Combat mag. What a great little shooter. Would like to share some pics of the gun which rides in one of Gary's Max-Cons...

    Gun had a few sparadic jams during the first 300 rounds using the Kimber stock and KimPro Tac mags. Purchased the Wilson Combats, ran 200 rounds since without a hiccup. I believe Kimber recommends at least a 500 round breakin, so maybe the Kimber mags would have worked at this juncture anyway?

    Excellent choices, all the way around. It'd be tough to beat that combo!

    Nice set up! How is the recoil on that bad boy compared to a fullsize 1911?

    I find it about the same as my Colt Commander. It was a pleasure to shoot, probably due to the type of recoil spring.
