I know this isn't really apples to apples, but its what I'm faced with at the moment. I've got the oppurtunity to get a used P220 Carry SAS or a used Kimber (1st genereation) Ultra CDP. I like both guns, probably won't carry either one, can't afford both at the same time. Prices are within $50 of each other. I'm thinking it'll be easier for me to find a compact or commander style 1911 later on, and I should go ahead and get the SAS. I've got a weak spot for the SAS. The grips fit my hand better than the stock SAS grips and I like the melt. CDP is definitely easier to conceal FOR ME, and has what I consider to be a medium melt-job. I have no 1911's and I'm not used to a SAO pistol. Everything else in my stable is a SA/DA, DOA, or DAK. Sway me one way or the other please.
