Well, just received my Solo from Yonkers...WOW!
So, after a three week wait my Solo DC is back. I have not had a chance to test fire it yet, but I thought it may be an interesting read to hear what they corrected/replaced...here goes, hang on...
Per Kimber paperwork included with the return...
We performed the following work:
-The frame was refinished
-The magazine catch was replaced
-The barrel was refinished
-The chamber was reamed and polished
-The extractor was adjusted
It was test fired with (3)mags of Pierce 124 gr FMJ and (1) mag of Hornady 147 gr XTP
The following complimentary services were performed...
-The outer recoil spring, slide stop spring screw, magazine catch button spring, trigger bar spring screw, trigger spring, sear spring, and thumb safety pin were replaced.
WTF??? I think it would have been easier and less expensive for them to just replace this gun. Sheesh!
How could anyone release a weapon intended for personal defense with even one or two of these issues. It does make me question the entire company!
Don't get me wrong, the customer service and turn around time was exceptional, but how could any mechanical device have that many issues as a new product? I know they were being proactive with some of the fixes, but really?
Guess we'll see how it performs. Part of me just wants to trade it off and be done with it.
I still believe in America!
