Considering a Solo--- Oh No!

Rickster 17, look away. There are too many good reliable choices out there. Unless you have a lot of ammo to waste or want to get to know the ppl in CS better scratch it off your list.

Horse pucky, Cucamonga. You've spit in the Solo soup frequently, so I'm not surprised at your post.

How's your Solo? Have you ever had one?

The Solo is one of the tightest, smallest, most accurate compact 9mm pistols on the market. There have been problems. I had some with mine, failure to extract, eject, & load; extra heavy recoil spring, difficult insertion and release of magazine. Kimber made it right



One trip back to Kimber and it has functioned perfectly ever since. Definitely worth the wait to have it fixed at no cost to me. Search the forum for others' experience in having Kimber fix their Solos.

If you are the kind of person who expects everything to be perfect out of the box you may not be happy. That's your problem, not the pistol's, it's a precision instrument and it is fixable.

Interesting 5Wire that you posted a link to the solo satisfaction poll but obviously you have not read it yourself. Implying that I have not owned a Solo is a rebuttable assumption on your part. As I stated in there and many other threads I've owned three solos my first one bought in 2011 and then Kimber replaced it in 2013 because they couldn't fix it. I sent it back because it still wasn't right and I upgraded to a solo CDP LG in 2015. So 3 in all. Each one had their own unique set of problems. So I know from whence I speak. Carry-on

Buy the SOLO and work out the bugs if there are any. I love mine and it works perfect. Best looking and accurate small pistol out there. It did have some initial trouble but not anymore than the Micro 9's or Micros. Even my Super Carry Ultra Plus and my Custom Crimson II have FTRTB and FTE issues. Good tune up and all is well.

Even Cuka's first Solo worked without fault until his loose grip/grip screws or whatever....

Wow, textbook...

"In Internet slang, a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion."
