CDP Ultra+

Now that Kimber quit making the 3" CDP Ultra+, I think I want one. I was never able to get my hands on one to actually see if the longer grip fits my hand the way I believe it will, but I found a new one for sale and I want it? I own several Kimber's, including a standard CDP Ultra, which is OK, and shoots nice, but I believe I would be happier with the added grip length.
Do any of you gents have any information or experience with the "+" model?
I called Kimber and the lady said,"if it is discontinued we have no information on that gun". I thought they would transfer me to someone who's been around there for awhile and at least tell me they discontinued it for lack of sales instead of something else. But nooo! Any help or advice would be appreciated.
Thank you,

The + models are just full size frames, if you have a standard 5" 1911 then imagine it with a 3" barrel.

JC, that's a different plus model OP says he wants a CDP Ultra+ however, the Super Carry Ultra + is the model I bought. I really LIKE it feels nice in my hand. I also really like the rounded heel of the grip.
The CDP will have a straight frame. Both no longer in production.
Buy what you want but I like the Super Carry better, IDK just do.
GunBroker is your friend.

I added the Crimson Trace Green laser grips.

Nice find John, I love my CDP Ultra but given the choice between the two I'd take the Super Carry Ultra + every time.

Since I added the Green laser to my SCU+ it stays longer and gets into the EDC rotation often. I love the CDP and RCP Ultra's but the square butt digs into my side fat/ribs sometimes.
