    I'm sure alot of you have seen the black version and the stainless version but I was just on the kimber website earlier and saw the CDP. It has the night sights and crimson laser grips. Its a very nice looking little gun. Probably one of the best looking pistols I've ever seen actually! I just bought a kimber custom crimson carry that looks like the solo cdp's bigger brother. I'm going to LGS tomorrow to see if I can order one in as it'd be the perfect back up gun for my crimson carry. Anyone know if these solo cdp's are out on the market yet?? I HAVE to get my hands on one of these!

    I've had my CDP since January. They are hard to find.

    I recommend you do some research on their reliability. My buddy has one and it has been a nightmare. Even with the SD ammo they recommend it has never put a magazine through it without a failure. He's a very experienced shooter and firearms instructor (it's not him, it's the gun). I've shot it and had the same issues. Kimber has offered to 'fix' it but won't pay for shipping. :banghead: I'm just trying to warn you. They look and feel awesome though.

    If they've worked out the bugs with the Solo, the CDP one looks freakin' awesome.

    I have over 4,700 rounds thru my Solo CDP and it is my favorite cc weapon hands down. I ordered a second one for my wife over nine months ago and am still waiting.

    The CDP is the newest version of it and from what I've heard they've gotten all the problems worked out. I'm going to take a chance on one, they're just too good lookin and i could use a new CC pistol for the days when i dont feel like sluggin around my 1911 or glock 36. If anyone hasn't seen the CDP I suggest you go to the website and check it out, I cant say enough on how good it looks!

    Well I just got back from the LGS and put in a special order for one. After tax it was just over $1100. Ouch. But i want it.

    Littlebluevette, you ordered a CDP 9 months ago and you're still waiting!?! Great I just ordered mine 9 hours ago... I sure hope it doesn't take that long. The LGS said it'll probably be 2-4 months. I cant wait to get mine, I honestly don't think I've ever been this excited to get any other pistol before abd I've had over 20 in the 5 years since I've turned 21. If you don't mind me asking, what did you pay for your two?

    Did the dealer at least buy you dinner?

    I got my CDP at an on-line auction for $1,226 in January. I've seen the CDPs sell at auction on line for as low as $1,175 and as high as $1,750. I ordered the second one from a local gun shop and didn't even ask them what what they were charging me.

    Kimber doesn't have the problems worked out of their 1911s, let alone a new gun design. I would pass. I have had miserable experience with Kimbers, and would rather arm myself with a pointy stick.

    Barlog, I only have one kimber currently, a custom crimson carry I bought 3 days ago and shot it for the first time today. I definitely got one of the good ones. I shot 200 rounds without a single problem and its easily the most accurate pistol I've ever shot (I have shot over 30 different pistols) and I'm in love! I can say without a doubt this won't be the only kimber i buy.
