I had a CD supeior grade that was a pre-enhanced model. I guess for what i had in it, it was ok.I put over 2,000 rounds threw it before I got ride of it.I never had any major problems out of the gun,but it's no kimber .I would check out 1911 forum,CD does not have a very good customer support team in my own opinon! I had problems with funny discoloring spots on the frame and they (customer support) nver would help me out and the frame was stainles IMO,save up and buy a kimber or springfield cause you'll end up wanting to unload the CD for one later on! IF you hold the CD in one hand and the kimber in the other you'll see and feel the difference,IMO! Good luck!
