How much is too much?

I bought a Solo DC on Jan 18th and have sent it in 3 times. Two returns for FTF, FTE, and once the slide became blocked by a dislodged pin and would not chamber the round.

So far it's been to the range 3 times, all ending in disappointment. It's been in my possession a total of 32 days and in transit or Kimber's possession for 90 days. Currently, they have the gun, and have had it since April 19th. They now seem to be ignoring my emails. When to I throw in the towel? What are my options? Any ideas?

As a former bill collector, I would advise that you "bite the bullet" and hire an attorney.

When the service provider ignores the client it means that they just want you to go away, and you've already lost. Getting an attorney will cost you something, but you will minimize your loss.

Make sure you take an itemized listing of costs, like postage, insurance, etc. and copies of the receipts. You might want to see if your cost of break-in ammunition can be pro rated.

Good luck, you're going to need it.

I truly feel lucky with my Solo CDP. I've had it since the CDP model 1st hit the shelves, and I've never had a problem with it.

Kimber definitely needs to get their shit straight with all these lemons out there.

Opinions on the Solo range from hot to cold. Glad I never bought one. IMO sell it. Take a lose if you have to.

I'm not sure I would/could do that, let me explain.

As I've stated, a small pistol like a Solo but chambered for a combat cartridge is probably going to be carried as a defensive piece.

If it doesn't work for you--and you sell it, even with disclaimers--how would you feel if a good guy or his wife got killed because the pistol failed?

This is Kimber's problem. They should be encouraged to repair or replace the pistol. This is a job for legal representation.

Do lemon laws exist in your state?
Totally ignorant on the subject but if you purchased it from a local store maybe it's time to go there (?).

I live in Washington state. I did a quick Google search and it would seem the state lemon law only applies to motor vehicles. Anyone know anything different?

Never go to a discussion forum for legal advice. Call your state to find out.
