Compact Custom-Pics added

New to the site and Kimber 1911's. My only Kimber is a Yonkers built K22; it's sweet. I am considering a trade for a early, 1997 ?, Series 1 Compact Custom. It is in 95-98% condition, round count 150, rosewood(?) grips, box, papers, 2 mags and a takedown kit. What can you tell me about these? Good or bad? Are the early models more desirable/ valuable? Can't find a single one sold on GB in the last year.

Thanks!

Made the trade for the Series 1 Kimber Compact Custom; it turned out to be better than described. Near perfect condition w/ original number matching box, papers and test target. Feels great in hand; look forward to taking it to the range.
Thanks for all the opinions and welcomes.

I don't know what the deal is but I don't see a lot of the Compact models.
That is a fine looking Kimber. Good job.
