Looking for a new edc ultra

Trying to decide between the ultra carry II two tone and the stainless in 9mm. Any opinions on which of the two are better? They are both at around the same price point.

Other then the Stainless having a stainless steel slide and the Two Tone a steel slide the only other difference is cosmetic. Same triggers, sights, weight etc, 6 of one 1/2 dozen of the other.

I've got the Stainless. Shoots like a champ. Very light trigger. Never been back to the factore. Real nice Pistol.

You can't go wrong with any Ultra {IMO} and my Raptor has been flawless even after a few thousand rounds down the tube....

The stainless ultra carry 9mm is a fine shooter, have several Ultra's mostly depends on which look you like.

Just purchased an Ultra Carry II the blued one with night sights. I really like it. I have only ran one box of 230 fmj reloads through it functioned perfect. Go for the one that you are attracted to the most! Of course you will be buying more Kimbers because they are addicting. On the other hand you might want to look at best price cause you will be buying more. Not sayin just sayin!

If the slide is indeed blued or parkerized, then I thinks it's just a matter of aesthetic preference. If the slide has the Kimb-oleum finish, then avoid it. It won't hold up as nicely, and might start looking shabby prematurely if you carry it.
