Well, almost
I traded a Kahr 380 for a Kimber 380, primarily because my old fingers couldn't rack the slide on the Kahr.
The Kimber felt fine.
Took it to the range today and put about 130 rounds thru it.
Perfect, except sometimes the slide didn't lock back on the last round.
Never had a problem with a misfire, no jamming of any kind, fired several different manufacturer's ammo with no problems.
I'm happy.
I bought the Kahr because of the size and because I have had a PM 9 before and never had any problems with it.
I did have a problem with the Kahr 380 when I tried to fire Fiocchi ammo thru it. Just didn't work.
Was impressed that the Kimber worked no matter what.
I have had Kimbers in the past and never had a problem until I bought an early Solo. Yukk!
Sent it back to Kimber describing the problems I had. They returned it after firing a few rounds thru it saying it was great.
Traded it off that day.
Because of the easy racking force required I bought the Kimber .380, even though I have a Sig P238.
Also took it to the range today and fired the same ammo thru it.
It always works great but it was noticeable that the trigger pull on the Sig is greater than that of the Kimber. Don't have a gauge so I can't specify the difference.
In any event I was impressed with the Kimber.
Probably will keep both for now.
I usually carry a Sig P938. The Kimber .380 will give it some competetion due to it's size.

Welcome to the Forum from almost the Middle of TN. We have a Kimber Mico Carry also. We have found that it only likes certain types of ammo. My wife qualified with it today at a range...worked great. We do keep it oiled heavy though. I think it is getting broke in now. On the slide...have you checked out a Handi-Racker?

Welcome from Oklahoma. My wife has a Micro and I have a Solo.
Sorry to hear about your bad experience with your Solo but the early models seemed more problematic for some reason.
