This is a much sought after Kimber Compact CDP Pre-Series II (i.e., Series I). The gun is mint, with no wear marks, no dings, and very minimal use. I'm the second owner and I've only shot it in one IDPA match. The original owner (Aleko on AR15.com) shot it only a few times. Probably has less than 500 rounds total through it. I'm selling it to fund a Yost~Bonitz project.

The finest pistol you can carry.
Sometimes the essence of a product is captured in its name. CDP (Custom Defense Package) pistols from the Kimber Custom Shop are the finest carry pistols available today. They chamber the power of the .45 ACP and are fitted with custom features that make them an exceptional value.
CDPs are some of the most successful pistols Kimber has ever produced, and certainly the most copied. Others have dressed up a basic 1911 to look like a CDP, suggesting it is as good as a Kimber but sells for a lower price. They may be able to copy the look but no company can match Kimber quality and performance. There is also a certain irony in the suggestion that you should trust your life to the low bidder.
Each CDP has 30 lines-per-inch checkering on the front strap as well as under the trigger guard for a positive grip under any conditions. A match grade Premium Aluminum Trigger is consistent from shot to shot. Stainless steel small parts like the slide release, magazine release, beavertail grip safety and hand-checkered double diamond rosewood grips compliment the two-tone matte finish.
The 1911 is proven to be the most dependable semi-automatic platform for a carry pistol, and Kimber makes the best 1911. Don’t trust your life to anything less than the best.
