So this is my Pro CDP II.
As my member intro stated, its a work in progress.
I got this pistol second hand at my LGS. Tag price was $1,275.00 with New CTC grips, Original grips, single and ambi safety included and 3 Kimpro tac mags. After looking it over I realized the previous owner had decided to smooth out the trigger.....which is all well and fine except they decided to do it with a dremel. They also decided to do it with said dremel WITHOUT removing the trigger and bow from the frame. End result...........well they scratched the heck out of the frame and put some gouges into it, also gougued the heck out of the trigger. After speaking to the Manager I was able to get him to drop the price to $1075.00 and throw in a Nice Galco Miami Classic shoulder rig and 2x boxes of 230g Federal HST's :-D
So I set out to fix that with my own dremel on low speed and a 250x sanding disk. However I detail stripped it first and was able to repair the damage to the trigger.
Next will come smoothing the aluminium frame for a nice cerakote black finish to make it all pretty again.
I also jigged the sear and filed that a bit honed the contact on the hammer, polished the trigger bow and rails, mirror polished the feed ramp and adjusted the overtravel on the trigger and it now breaks at 3.5 clean :-D Whoop!
The Recoil spring felt like it should be in a 9mm so a Wolff spring upgrade and it returned it to its ridiculously tight Kimber mannerisms.
Some fresh batteries in the CTC and its good to go.
Brought her to the range with me with 200 rounds of WWB 230g hardball. Took some dirty bird reactive targets and set them out at 15 yards and started shooting. All my shots were high until I realized i've been carrying a sig for years and a 1911's sights are different, after I dropped my front sight to just under the bullseye vs covering it I was able to group 2-3" at that distance which makes me pretty happy.
During shooting I had zero FTE's FTF's Jams, hangfires or light primer strikes, also not a stovepipe to be seen.
Only complaint is about 5 times the pistol did eject brass directly between my eyes, but that's nothing that a bit of adjustment cant handle.
The paperwork that came with the pistol stated the original owner had sent it back to yonkers when he purchased it in 2013. Due to fail to eject issues. Also states the extractor and ejector were adjusted.........well needs to be done again.
Overall the pistol ran like a clock minus the brass to the face. But as we all know 1911's are picky and I just have to tune it in a tad more to get the desired effect that I want :-)
