Just wondering is it two-tone or stainless?
A follow up, my Solo worked fine after i got it back from the factory and only had the one mag, finally got two extra mags from Kimber and was ready to start carrying it full time, loaded a mag and pulled the slide back and ummmmm dam it, the slide locked up in the rear postion and the mag release button wouldnt let the mag go, the first round wasnt really in a postion to be picked up, too low, had to get a pair of plyers and used them to pop the mag release. Tried another mag with just five rounds in it and it seemed to work, added a sixth round and again the same problem. So called Kimber and after going over my problems they offered me the choice of repairing the weapon or a new one, i took the new Solo option, Just received a phone call today from Kimber and they are shipping my new Solo to my selling dealer and should be here on Monday, 11/28. I guess ill go from there and see how it works out. I still like the gun and want it to work, it feels and shoots great when it works. just want it to work all the time. The good news is my Kahr works fine and for the time being will be my main carry piece.
:smt011 No Solo for me... eff this waiting...
Has anyone made a recent Solo purchase that worked out? Wondering if Kimber latest production is any better than the initial offering?
All I know about them is that they aren't shipping out the stainless steel solo's yet, however they have introduced the crimson carry on there website. I wish they would get there initial product out before they added a new version.
I have had my Solo for about a month now.
1st time out 100 rounds of gold Dot 124 grain. No problemo.
2nd time. I brought a bunch of odds and ends FMJ and 40 rounds of 147 grain Hi Shok JHP's
I had one light strike on the 50 JHP's.
And a few jams with the light weight 115 grainers.
I was expecting that so it didn't bother me.
As long as it performs with the Medium to heavy weight JHP's, I'm OK.
The pistol is nice looking and shoots accurately.
Fits my Keltec PF9 and Rohrbrough holsters just fit so that help makes up for the $699.00 price tag.
I decided to use a little grease where I see wear marks on the frame which is were the slide rubs and the spring is removing the black finish on the inside.
Be carfull when working the slide taking this thing apart. I got the skin at web of my hand pinched between the slide and frame.
That spring is tight.
I live in Las Vegas, and have been looking for one since they came out. All of the KImber dealers have me on there list to call. It's been about a year since introduction, maybe the phones are not working!
150 rounds of recommended ammo through my Solo CDP and no issues. I kept both magazines fully loaded to "break-in" the springs. Stiff little sucker to load with my old hands.
In answer to the question about availability of the SS model, I ordered a SS model Solo thru Bud's last March. Finally picked it up from my FFL on Dec 23rd.
I took it to the range after Christmas and fired 100 rds of Remington Gold Saber thru it without a problem. I feel it is a very acurate pistols out of the box, for it's size. I then tried some of Academy's 115gr 9mm to see if it would handle the cheaper ammo. It fired the first two rounds ok, but the third and fourth rounds failed to feed properly. I cleared the jam, reloaded the mag with the same rounds and had the same feeding problem. I feel it may have something to do with the shape of the bullet so i didn't try to force the issue anymore. Overall, I'm very pleased with it.
I let the range manager try out my Solo CDP.......he started loading it up with some PMC 115gr and I said that it was not a recommended ammo. 40 rounds and it worked perfectly. So far I have had zero malfunctions with my Solo. Knock on wood. :rolleyes:
Anybody know where I can buy one? I'm on waiting lists locally but I am too anxious and hate waiting!!!!
Still looking for a Solo if anybody has seen one or knows where I can find one let me know. thanks
lol.....yes, I removed the stickers. The picture was right after I received it.
Very Nice! Did the Solo set you back more than the Ultra CDP?
