I've owned several make/models of the 1911 over the years (maybe a dozen different pistols).. everything from an old WWII era government model made by singer sewing machine, to Springfield TRP's, to my current Kimber Ultra Carry CDP II... all have been .45 ACP's though..

I just came into possession of a Kimber CDP II in 9mm today..

Online reviews seem good to great on the 9mm.. and I really like my CDP II in .45.. never had a single problem out of it...

Just wondering if there is anything noticeably different (outside of the obvious smaller holes, lighter recoil, etc).. Are the 9mm's generally just as reliable? are they picky eaters (my .45 CDP will eat anything I feed it)? etc..etc..
I have...... more than one Kimber to include 3 9mm's A Stainless Custom, A Pro (Aegis) and an Ultra carry. I use the Kimber stainless magazines without issue in all three, especially the Ultra (Officer Size). I don't know if they are classified as KimPro tacMags like the 45's, but that's what I shoot. I have had some issues with Kimbers in 45 but these three in 9mm run like tops. I think it is more the specific pistol than caliber. I shoot what ever ammo is in the can on top of the pile. WWB in 115, some fiocchi in 124 and even the federal +p+. All load and shoot fine. (I don't plink with these, however)
