I acquired a first gen aegis ii. Now I say first gen b/c it has a bobbed hammer and is not called the "ultra" like it's new aged brother. Anyone know about these pistols? Or even what they sell for?

Ones I've seen have been circa $1200.

While I wish you luck, I've been burned by a couple of less than full size. Nothing for me but govt. size.

I have a full size Aegis and totally love it , though I do hate the thumb safety that comes on them .

But with that being said for a carry gun I would get the CDP (in an ultra if that is the size you like) , I have a full size one for EDC.

If you are intending to do more range shooting than carrying it and just have to have a Ultra, I would suggest a Eclipse Ultra since it has a steel frame in place of the aluminum.
The extra weight will help tame the recoil some

I am like one of the posters above where as I only buy the full size models , but have a lot of friend swear by the Ultras.

I am a Kimber fan. I currently only have 2 in my 1911 family. At one time I had 5 kimbers. Currently have a Stainless Ultra Carry II and a Custom Covert II. I did at one time own an early model Aegis. I really liked it. Shot and handled very well. I sold it about 3 years ago in 95%+ shape for $1100.00. Now I would value it around $1200 to $1300. You picked up a very nice 1911. Can you post a pic of it? Would like to see it. Might be able to give you a good estimate on what you might get for it, if you decided to sell or trade.

None of those.  If I had $1500 to drop on a carry piece I would buy a Dan Wesson CCO and not look back.

Ultra Comp Kimber didn't run? Really. I've never had an issue with a kimber, I've owned a dozen or so. I know that my compact Kimbers are and were picky with what mag your running. I run the Kimber mags or the Chip McCormick power mag's. They dont like GI issue or Wilson mags. DW ECO's are very nice. Would drop on that if I had the cash <––––- (That coming from a Kimber fan). I've shot one, very smooth and easy to control.

I like my Colt 1991 Compact just fine for 1/3 of your budget.  Leaves you some money for customization once you carry for a bit and develop your likes and dislikes.
