I went and done it. Here is my new Kimber Ultra TLE II. They didn't have an Ultra Covert II so I saved a bunch of money anyway. I'm Happy with my purchase. Got to clean the bore and shoot the snot out of it.

I know; my pics suck. I've got to start taking better pics.

Anyway, I put 150 rounds through it today. Quite a punchy little gun. The accuracy isn't bad at 10 yards. I wonder if I could even hit anything at 25 yards.

I bought the Ultra TLE II because it is steel. I figure this'll hold up longer than aluminum. Any truth to that?

My Pro CDP (1998 vintage) has been carried since purchase, and it's frame has had no issues. I think the aluminum may show wear/dings a bit easier. but the trade-off is less weight to carry. I have several 1911's in my carry rotation, and some are steel and others aluminum. I've carried a 1911 so long that frame composition really makes no difference to me any more. If there were a vast difference in durability, the aluminum frames would likely cease to exist. If memory serves, S&W doesn't even offer a steel framed 1911 any more... Nice to have a choice, at any rate.......
