Smile Works good, feels good, is good.

New to the forum.
Just purchased SOLO in spite of all the negative reviews. After much research decided that majority of problems experienced with SOLO were operator induced. I couldn't be happier with the performance so far.
120 rounds with no FTF, misfires or FTE. Using Winchester 124gr and Perfecta 115gr.
Recoil is a little "crisp" but love the piece.
Magazines are fairly stiff but I believe they will "soften" with use. Like everyone else, can't fully load any of them. (not an issue)

Get a stick or something, and work the spring vigorously up and down for a bit of time.

Congratulations, which model Solo did you get?
I have the Solo DC LG and it works like a Swiss watch.
But be forewarned and get ready for some Solo bashing from a few on this site.

Makes loading a stiff mag a breeze.
