    Kimber Guys, Help Me Out w/This Model

    I was in a gun shop last week and saw a particular pistol that caught my eye. The clerk knew very little about it but it was brand new. The tag said "Kimber CDP Ultra Elite... First Run."

    Now I have located information about these guns... I think. What I am wanting to know is:

    a) is this pistol significantly better than an off-the-shelf CDP you would buy today?

    b) is this pistol a good buy at just a shade under $1,000?

    Thanks!

    The model in question was the predecessor to the CDP line if I'm not mistaken:

    ULTRA ELITE (1999): 2750 produced. Aluminum frame with black KimPro finish, satin stainless slide, full meltdown treatment, 3” barrel. 30 LPI fronts strap checkering, three dot tritium night sights, hand checkered rosewood grips. 25 oz. MSR: $1085
    As it's a pre-series II gun, I'd buy it over a current production Series II CDP any day.

    I have two Kimbers, both CDP's...

    I was under the impression that the Kimber Ultra CDP Elite, was first made 5 or 6 years ago...perhaps that have made a new batch.
    I would make sure that it has the internal extractor, and not an external one.

    Kimber CDP's are going for $1060 around here.

    I love my Kimbers an Ultra and a Compact...Kimbers rock!
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.
