9mm Kimber Raptor

Any one here tried the 1911 Kimber Raptor in 9mm? Either Pro or Ultra in size.
I realize Kimber is coming with the Micro in 9mm. And they offer the Aegis. Just kinda want to stay with the 1911 platform.
Thoughts.
Opinions.

I picked up a PRO CDP II a few months ago and it has shot flawlessly. I've got over 500 rounds on the count and not one problem with function :-) Front sight was poorly fitted so she had to go to Yonkers for that. It's been fixed and seems to be holding fine. I can vouch for a PRO size model, other than the cosmetic differences the PRO Raptor is essentially the same gun. I haven't seen many posts about problems with the Ultras, I think you'll be happy with either :-) The Micro 9s haven't hit the shelves yet and may be more of a roll of the dice kinda thing?
If you haven't looked at Kimbers site you may want to, there's a bunch of models in 9mm that are new for this year.
...hope we'll see a range report in not too long :-)

I own the CDP II Pro also I love the pro models. Was not sure I would like the aluminum frame but I really like it a lot.

I love my Ultra Raptor in 9mm, never had a failure, feeds everything and a damn pretty gun.

What type or brand of magazines are you using.

With my .45 calibers I use the Kimpro Tac Mags. But I don't believe they make them in 9mm.

Found this information on another forum.
Then, whatever you buy, make sure it has a Skirted Follower or a plastic follower. The Split-follower mags kick the follower forward after the last round is loaded. This will wear a gouge in your ramp.

Heck, I use plain old Kimber mags in both the Raptor and Aegis and never had a single problem. They are priced well and they work....
