Old Kimber, New Look

Just got my CDP II back from the smith. I had him cerakote it in graphite black, give it a trigger job (3lbs), and reverse crown the barrel.

Old look:



New look:



Barrel reverse crown



Now I'm working deciding on what grips I want to put on it.

Thanks. Grip shopping is frustrating. I see so much that I like, and the prices can be outrageous.

Yeah that looks great, I really like it. Does the reverse crown thing improve/help anything besides looking awesome?

The reverse crown helps protect the crown of the barrel, here's a picture of my SCP. Flush cut reverse crown and ported.

Chuck does the porting make it noticeably louder? I have not shot a ported handgun before.
