Solo Recoil Spring Assembly

Does anyone know where to buy replacement/back-up RSAs for the Solo? Every place that I've looked that lists them notes that they are out of stock.

I bought my Solo used, so I'm unsure how many rounds it has through it. I'm guessing it was on the low end before I bought it, and I've put no more than 150-200 rounds through it myself.

All's good so far, and I intend this to be a "carry a lot, shoot a little" pistol, but I'd love to have a second RSA on hand when the round count hits the 1K mark that Kimber warns about.

Thanks for whatever help you can provide....

I purchased a couple directly from Kimber when I acquired my Solo. From what I gather, they go out of stock frequently but ultimately come back in stock eventually.

Limber is showing out of stock and I did a quick search on eBay and nothing there either ??

Bosco, I bought up a bunch after I bought my used Solo. I’ve since traded that one for a 1911. I need to find them but if you are interested, shoot me a PM. I’ll sell you one for a spare. I believe I have complete assemblies and just the spring.

* The Recoil unit can provide about 1300-1700 “normal” shots.
* The unit includes 2 springs: inner and outer.
* The easiest and cheapest way is to replace the outer one only.
Your updated unit will provide around 900 shots.

What is considered a "normal" shot with a Solo?

When slide is on an "open" position, you placed full (6 round ) magazine into the gun and slide positively returning into the battery position with the "one click" action when SS (slide stop) was released.
