I wonder why?

Stopped into a LGS today.

They had both a Kimber 1911 Pro CDP Custom Shop (2017) 9mm (Series 70) and Kimber 1911 Pro CDP II (Swartz Firing Pin).

The 2017 was about $150.00 cheaper than the CDP II.

Cosmetically the 2017 was more attractive with the Flat Top cut to the the slide.

One frame is Gray, One frame is Black.

Both came with 9 round mags......

Wonder if I made a mistake????

What is the mistake that you think you made?

Price reduction could be because of the fewer parts and less machining that goes into not installing the firing pin safety.
