Is your finish two tone or stainless ?
Do you have lazer grips! Does the corners seem rounded or are they more square? Those are the issues that make up different models. Take a picture and post it or call KIMBER give them the serial and they will tell you which model you have.

Does anyone know if the barrels and triggers were the same on all of the solos' I am assuming they were but one should never assume!

Read what's stamped on your gun. It'll be on the slide under the ejection port following the letters SOLO ... STS.. CDP... DC... Sapphire...

I think you're on safe ground with your assumption. In particular, the trigger is one of the things Kimber got right on the Solo. I can't imagine Kimber fixing what wasn't broke when things that were broke weren't fixed. Hey... maybe I could turn that into country music lyric...
