Best Ultra compact 9mm,
March 22, 2013
Best ultra compact 9mm on the market. The bad press is a result of the folks out there that can or won't follow simple instructions regarding reassembly and ammo, then want to bash the pistol on the forums. Want a Chevy, buy a chevy. Want a Porsche feed it the premium fuel it demands and deserves.
Shot New Solo for the first time,
November 19, 2011
225 rounds through the new Solo today. First 25 47gr Defense Ammo. Followed by four boxes of 115gr White box ball ammo.
Not one malfunction.
After all the bad press I was reading I was concerned... Not so much anymore, I like it!
Kimber Solo Carry Production,
October 05, 2011
I have been on three waiting lists for almost a year for a stainless solo carry,I can't say much for Kimbers production department,also check You Tube videos about this gun,several are returning to factory for repairs,that's not saying much about one of the most expensive 9 mm micro compacts.
Yep! Good Weapon,
October 04, 2011
I got mine in Sept. 2011.
Worth the wait, and it is small! Magazine pictures make it look large.
No issues at all. Just shoot 124gr and up in size ammo, and it loves high grain JHP ammo. 115gr, not recommended by mfg, and forget using junk 9mm ammo. This is a sports car.
My is Silver and Black frame. 17 OZ weight, you forget you are carrying. Tight tolerances and very accurate. Aluminum alloy frame and Stainless steel slide. Slide lock back on last shot and has a manual safety, if you want to use.
Feed it the good ammo and enjoy.
Another advantage is you can install custom wood grips (just like the 1911 models) and add a bit of personalized statement. SGM Grips.com has a fine selection of SOLO grips, and 1911 grips.
Just be patient, demand is high for SOLO's!
Don't believe the bad press,
August 16, 2011
Don't believe the bad press about this gun and issues with reliability. Sure I had to follow a break in period which was more like 50 rounds than 24 or whatever is suggested. With good ammo this gun feeds flawlessly. I adore this gun, I carry 24/7 for work and play and this gun is up to the task. I have shot Speer Gold Dot, and Federal HSP for quality ammo as well as $9 / box American Eagle with no problems. The Solo also fed +P and loved it. The size is fantastic and the fit and finish outstanding. I selected this gun for the safety and the butter smooth trigger pull.
