now that the Solo is dead...predictions?

Kimber has ceased production on the Solo. It's dead. gone. With that said, I see 3 possible outcomes - 1, Kimber sells it to someone else and it comes out again, 2, Kimber brings out a Solo 2, although I can't imagine how they could improve it, 3, it's dead and gone forever.

Now with that said, do the existing Solo's become high dollar collector pieces or bargain basement duds?

If they get the bugs worked out of the M9 does anyone think there will be a reason to resurrect the Solo?

The micro 9 is more popular and has more fans. I do believe the solo will be discontinued unfortunately(depending on which side of the aisle your on). Sadly Similar to how this innocent thread will end up.

Sig and Glock came out with a 380 first and then their 9mm; maybe Kimber will do it in reverse and come out with a 380 Solo. Bet they'd sell a ton of 'em. I might try one.😲

Hahaha now that's actually funny. Although the glorious Glock has been known to have similar issues to the solo from what I read.
On topic .380 Solo would start a war on two fronts. 9 vs .380 ballistics followed up with an assault on actual gun vs paperweight. Chuck would have his hands really full then.
