Default Kimber Ultra RCP II vs Ultra CDP II

If you had a choice between these 2 which would you buy? Why?

Must be too new still. That answers that, I guess. That is a very covert looking little unit.

actually nope just talked with Kimber... no plans to get it CA approved. Looks like I will pick up the cdp II. Do any of you put thinner grips on the cdp? They seem to be a little wide?

I know on the Kimber section of 1911forum it seems the thinner grips are pretty common. I know of one member here who did it too. Might be more. I have been carrying mine for a few weeks and can see where thinner grips could be a benefit though the stock ones have not been an issue for me at all. Of course YMMV.
Me...I love the look and feel of the stock grips. Too cool!

I have thin Alumagrips grips on my Ultra CDP. I like them.

I have rather stubby fingers and found the stock grip panels on my Stainless Ultra Carry II a little thick.

It was nothing I could not manage, however, I replaced them with some Wilson Combat 351SLDO Slim Line Grips.

Slim Line Grips

Overall feel and percieved control seemed to improve and I am quite happy with them. Additionally, they look very good with the silver anodized frame and stainless steel slide of the Stainless Ultra Carry.

Thanks,

Wide??? For you hands, or are you just talking in concealment terms?

BTW, I researched the RCP thing a couple of weeks ago, too. I have the Ultra CDP II, I want the RCP as well.

I put the slimline grips on my SA Micro-compact and they work great for me. My Kimber Ultra CDPII will have them soon as well.

Concealment terms... I actually prefer the wide grip, but for a single stack it's pretty wide. Slimmer grips shuld help! Thanks everyone for your input!

I know about the purchase restrictions, but if a pistol that's not on the list is legally owned by a CCW holder, can it be on his permit?
