Super Carry Ultra or Ultra CDP II 45

Okay so like I really need another 1911, LOL. Have been researching both and just wondered the pros and cons of both. The Super Carry costing a couple hundred more is it worth the extra? How does the recoil compare, accuracy, and which functions best? Also do both of these guns have issues with the finish? Thanks for any input.

I don't know the answer to your question - but I have to support the fact that you've admitted that you "really need another 1911".

Ultra CDP II vs Ultra Super Carry

Both guns have the same KimPro II finish.
Both guns have the same 3" match grade barrels.
Both guns have stainless steel slides.
Both guns have aluminum frames.
The recoil will be the same in both guns.
The CDP has a skeletonized trigger the USC solid.
Both guns have Meprolight Tritium sights but the USC has a cocking shoulder.
The CDP has the Swartz firing pin safety, the USC does not
.

JMHO:
I own an Ultra CDP II and a Super Carry Pro, I trust them both with my life and the lives of my loved ones but will always grab the Super Carry if I can only take one.

Has the KimPro II finish improved at all or is it just hit and miss with this finish?

Buy both and send me the one you don't like.

Love my Super Carry Ultra HD. It is my EDC.

I honestly don't know but I haven't had a problem with the finish on either of the last two new Kimbers I've bought.

The finish on some Kimbers are awful.
My 2 year old PC2 is off getting a Cerakote job because it looked like it was 20 years old and not 2..

I think Chuck did a great job with the comparison for you. Both are great pistols. I have a Ultra CDP, I bought it a year ago and it still looks brand new with no signs of wear to the finish.
