Plus if you look they have changed the back strap design.

Frame

Material: Aluminum
Finish: Satin Silver
Width (inches): 1.28
Scaled Raptor pattern
Round heel frame.

More like the Micro.
Or even the Super Carry Ultra H.D. design.

They also did it on a couple of other models like the Ultra CDP and Ultra Covert. They also dropped the firing pin safety on more models.

I noticed Kimber does not list the Super Carry HD's for 2017.
The SCHD's may be Dodo birds like the Solo.

Makes me glad I bought mine.
I love them!!!!!!
If you study the themes of the lines they use the same concept as the Raptor.
One became popular. One didn't.
Probably much to do with not offering a model with the Stainless finish.
I own both and in many ways prefer it to the Raptor.

They've also DC'd the Tactical line; happy I bought my Tactical Custom and Pro last year. Fun to shoot.
