Micro vs Solo

After selling my Solo because it was not dependable, Iam looking at The Micro 9mm. Iam going to give it some time to see if it is dependable, not like the Solo.

That appears to be wise. With the solo naysayers on here it's hard to take pride in ownership . Mine works fine. I also have a new p938 but loaned it to a friend. I carry my STS daily and love it. KIMBER has stopped production of the Solo to concentrate on the micro 9. Just my guess but I doubt they ever put it back into production. Everything fails at some point. As we see with the micro 9 and others.

If they don't put the Solo back in production the are admitting it was a failure.
That could open up a class action suit?

A class action suit for what ??

For everyone that was a lemon who knows how many were actually functional from the beginning ??

Just because something doesn't work for some people doesn't mean that litigation is necessary...

I had/have 2 of the Solo's and they both were fixed by the crew in Yonkers and they both function as well as a new gun to this day...

That would be futile since they honor warranties so well.

I'm in: put me down for monetary damages for wasted ammo, emotional stress, defamation of character by other happy Solo owners and recurrent nightmares (I'm in a life threatening situation and I reach into my pocket to pull out my Sig 938 and out comes my old Solo.😫 Dooh!

While I like my Solo and would never give it up, the new Micro 9 is looking to be a fine conceal carry choice.
I would, however, wait until they offered it with night sights.

I think if they were going to do it they would have done it from the beginning.

I think that they're perfectly happy getting our $123 for the sights after we get the gun and realize how much it sucks without them..
