Don't take this as gospel, my memory isn't what it once was. The Combat Carry was produced in 98-99 it was a compact model with an alloy frame, 4" SS slide, rubber grips and night sights, I believe that they produced just over 1000 of them. The Combat Carry quickly became the Elite Carry line which morphed into today's CDP.

I think Chuck's memory is spot on! I believe it evolved into the CDP model line, it has a heavy carry melt treatment which IMO is very desirable.
