Kimber pro CDP

Hello folks ,newbie here.
I have a question about the Kimber Pro CDP and
it's Aluminum frame.
I'm kind of concerned that if I put too many rounds thru
this handgun the frame will be damaged. I'm a backyard plinker
and would like to know if anybody has a round count on
their CDP.....not the CDP II?
Thanks
Ron

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois rong, your aluminum framed CDP like all aluminum framed Kimbers is good for about 50,000 rounds. My oldest one according to my shot book is approaching 20,000 and the frame is as sound as the day I got it. At todays prices 50,000 rounds will cost you over $20,000.00.

Ditto on what Chuck said with the exception of the over $20K amount.
If you buy Freedom Munition @ .31cts a round, the total is $15,700...{stat geek}

Rong, you will never wear that gun frame out if you wanted to...

The biggest deciding factor on aluminum vs steel frame is weight and balance. That is a personal preference.

Just remember the difference between steel vs aluminum weight is around 7oz.
Then if you add the weight of 7 rounds of 45's {5oz} plus the weight of the mag itself {3oz} you now have added 8oz to a steel frame firearm that weighs 31 oz. to begin with..
Like it has been said...It's a personal preference..
