Id like to get the CDP but more concern on the finish vs the satin coating on DCR

No big deal on tritium vs fiber optic as this is a defense and not target gun.

Whats your opinion on these model?

I like the looks of the DCR better but I'll take Tritium sights over fiber optic every time.

I'm a sucker for shiny objects so DCR for me, love the stainless, wood grips, would prefer night sights. I would have to see the CDP in person, not sold on the Two-Tone revolver.

If you get a chance to hold either one before you buy, do so. I almost bought one, held it for about 30min at Cabela's, didn't like how it felt in my hand, did not buy. FYI
