    Cool

    Only one magazine. Pretty sad for a pistol that costs as much as a CDP II does, isn't it. Great guns though. Considering getting the Compact next.
    You'll probably get advice only different magazines for the pistol but make sure you look at the KimPro Tac Mag when looking to buy. Great mags, IMO.

    I thought it came with 3 magazines. Anyway, what size mags does fit this gun?

    Nope, just the one.

    Standard "Government" or full sized mags in either 7 or 8 round configuration.

    Do the 8 rounders sit flush with the base as well?

    It depends on whose 8 rounders you use, Wilsons will fit somewhat flush pending on what base pad you use, Cobra mags will extend past the bottom of the grip frame.

    Kimber Tac mags and most if not all of the McCormick 8 round mags will fit flush.

    Use Wilson mags

    I've had a Kimber Pro CDP for about 4 years, and immediately replaced the factory magazine with several Wilson Combat stainless 8 round magazines. As you can see in the photo, these stick out slightly even with the thin base pad I am using. But they work well and I like the gun very much. I did put on thin grip panels, a black steel mainspring housing (original was plastic) and a Brown single side thumb safety, replacing the original ambi safety.

    I originally had two Kimbers, a Pro CDP II, and an Ultra CDP II. I carry the Ultra as my EDC. The Pro was older and had an external extractor, I traded it towards the Compact CDP II (internal extractor). I liked the shorter grip, the the longer (than my Ultra) barrel allowed me to use my Pro holsters.

    Each came with only one mag, but I bought 3 extras for each. I bought Kimber mags and I've never had a problem with them.
    All give me 7 + 1...

    I love my Kimbers.

    I love my Kimber Pro CDP II. I purchased two of the KimProTac mags (8+1). They have worked very well, I have an added base pad to the bottom of those and carry them as spares. I carry with the original mag (7+1) that fits flush. All mags have worked very well. The gun is great at 1 year old - It looks good and shoots fine. I am very satisfied.

    My CDP II is the most accurate gun in my safe. I wish I could afford a 3" and a 5"!
