Used 4Ē, Officerís frame, all stainless - what is it?

I ran across a used Kimber 1911 today, and Iím thinking itís a discontinued model. It is a 4Ē with a stainless slide and a stainless Officerís size frame in .45. The safety is strong side only. The slide serrations are plain grooves, nothing fancy.

Iíve always wanted a CCO, and despite being a steel frame this caught my eye. I didnít buy it (yet, and I probably won't), but what did I see?

I think that’s it! I think the one I saw had a steel frame, but I’d prefer alloy. I can’t find it on the Kimber website, so I assume it has been discontinued. I may need to start putting quarters in a jar... for after the K6s. Thanks!!!

According to this 2016 discontinued list it was. It's #15 on that list. {3200036 - 1911 Cmpct Stnls II .45 Alum}

I’m going to try getting down to look at the one you linked - the seller is a local store. I’m not sure what typical pricing is like, though.

It was IMO and entry level Kimber to start with. My thinking it should be in the 600-700 dollar range. Just my .02.
In case you didn't know you can verify the model by looking below the ejection port on the right side of the slide.
