Happy Solo Owner

The more I read on this forum of all the issues with the Solo makes me Appreciate my DC SOLO more than ever. I'm just waiting for Meryl Streep to start Bashing the Solo.

What year did you acquire your Solo and what is the round count? Has it been YONKERED? Is it your daily ccw? Inquiring minds want to know.

We should have a solo questionnaire when you sign up to be a memeber or a special tab to complete in the about me section of the user CP

Do we really need Meryl to start bashing the Solo? Arenít there enough people on this forum handling that task already?

After ONE visit to the MotherShip in Yonkers my Solo runs like a Swiss watch......

It will shoot any grain that you put in it and I trust it so much that I gave it to my father to use as his everyday carry...

The End....[yeah like that's ever gonna happen on KT]....

Bought my Solo in the fall of 2015. 400 to 500 rounds. It has not been Yonkered I did have Kimber send me a replacement Mag. it was not locking back on last shot. That took care of problem. I alternate my choice of carry between Kimber, Colt, & Glock.

I hope my solo becomes like yours !
Bought mine 12.5.16, put ~400 various "premium" rounds through it.
got RMA from kimber, 12.15.16 sent back for these problems:
never a completed 7 rounds without a fail to chamber, fail to eject, stovepipe, except using remington golden sabre was perfect,
rear sight loosened and nearly fell off,
slide after 200 rounds would not stay back after last shot fired.
very frustrating for high dollar mouse gun to behave like this.
Bought Solo because safety and magazine release both ambidextrous.

And I gave my dear father mine....What point were you trying to make stirrer of the kettle..

I thought he gave them Sigs and since Chuck won't on a plastic gun I don't believe he would give them to his children... I may be wrong but he'll come along later and correct one of us.
