Interested in Kimber Ultra CDP II .40 cal. Shot one on the range with a friend. Kimber do not carry them on their website, only in .45 ACP. Was there anything wrong with this gun for them to discontinue it? Need your help

They made them in .40S&W for awhile. Some Kimbers ib .38 Super, too.
I am a big fan of the .40, and it was my favorite on-duty caliber in a Glock.
It probably wasn't profitable enough for the company as they stick with the, 45 & 9.

The Kimber makes a very nice 1911 clone. I had one in .45acp, but it never really felt 'just right' to me.
Prob just personal preference, never had any failures with it.
I sold it & got the Colt Defender .45 and it is now my favorite 1911.

I chose to consolidate calibers, so I could save by getting ammo in bulk & had to choose between the 9mm & .45acp.
The combinations of velocity vs mass are many, but I found I could get the most ft/lbs of energy, per round, with the .45acp +P... so I sold most of my 9mms.

Others may argue capacity with 9s, but I figure the fewer shots the better for a SD shoot.
