Solo Keeps tickin!

Had a Kimber range day taking my Solo DC and Marshall 9 CDP for shooting some paper. The Solo was fed 4 mags of 6 rds, all 85 gr DRT, two standard and two extended mags. All fired accurately and without malfunction. Attached pic shows results at 21 ft at rapid fire. The three targets at the top center were Solo hits. I will report on the CDP in the proper forum.

just sent my solo back for the 2nd time, slide stop almost always fails to hold back after last round, some stove pipes, very few fail to chamber.
first time sent back mostly fixed fail to chamber, stove pipes, slide stop fail to hold back, loose rear sight.
hopefully this will be last time to be yonkerfied.

I hope they take care of the thing for you. I too agree that it is a b$%ch to pay this much for a gun and not have it work properly. Guess that is the main reason the gun did not survive. When it does run for you, you.ll love it......

i'm left handed, really want the solo for concealed carry, ambidextrous safety and mag release, plus the great trigger.

No matter how many times you have to send it back? Keep after them until it's right .
