Happy camper.

Solo back from yonkers, 200 flawless rounds this am.
Yonkers replaced most every internal part plus reaming chamber.
2/11, Shot 10 brands of ammo, from 153 to 124gr. Mostly hollow point, win NATO, browning, HST, critical duty.
Failed to return to battery 3 times by about 1/16 inch, always with brass rather than nickle cased. Brass just seemed dirtier or more friction.

2/18, shot another 125, without any problems, mostly 158gr ppu. i'll shoot ~200 more before i'll carry.

Contrary to popular opinion, I do love hearing good Solo reports. I'm glad it's running for you. They are sweet little pistols.

Great to hear the good news on your Solo.....That just goes to show us with a little patience and persistence that little gun can be as dependable as any other gun out there....

Sorry for the small hi jack, but I couldn't resist the temptation.

I haven't heard of that grain before, but would be very interested since I like shooting a heavier bullet in my 9mm guns....{i.e 147gr}
