Differences in Ultra TLE Stainless?

I have been looking at a couple of TLE Stainless pistols but have a question. What is the difference between model #3200348 and #3200239? They are both Ultra TLE Stainless.

Thanks!

It looks like the difference is one has the G10 grips and the other synthetic...Unless I'm missing something....Both have the same specs also..The G10 model is a 2016

Same deal with the TLE Pro (TFS) I just bought for $668, it has plain old black boring grips. The "new" model has kind of grey/black G10 grips. For what I saved on the pistol I can buy a butt load of different grips.
Like they said no difference between the two.

2016 prices, ect, have me wondering why any sane Kimber buyer would purchase a 'plain old' base Kimber. TLE's are great deals!!! for the working man's hard earned bucks!!!

That's why I'm looking at an Ultra. I have a Custom TLE Stainless II and really like it. I kinda want a little brother for it (complete with Gonzales Flag custom grips to match)

I think I'll move my G10 grips from the CCCII to the TLE Pro.

The TLE Pro is supposed to ship tomorrow. Brad, at Osage County, said my purchase price of $655 was below their cost.

Yep, it is.

Since I have purchased from them before they pulled up my info from my phone number, even before I told them who I was. They still had FFL info on file, so it was easy peasy.
