Kimber Solo Arrived

Looking at the pic you can see it fits my hand like a glove. I have a Ruger LCP and a Springfield XDS and they don't compare to the fit it gives me. This is my first Kimber and after reading all the reviews about the Solo, I was very hesitant about purchasing one.
Took it to the range and fired 150 rounds (Federal hydro shok JHP 124) and it performed flawless. I did try Freedom 50 rounds 124 grain ball ammo and had 2 FTF. I'll stick with JHP's.
I 'am going to run 200 more rounds and if it performs well then this will be my EDC. Its a little snappy but very manageable.
Just a Great Feeling Gun.........

GREAT! You did the right thing. But I see you just had to prove to yourself about the other ammo. LOL I did the same thing. Just do as the owners manual says and I am sure you will enjoy the Solo. Remember to always catch, the slide stop spring when you are reassembling after cleaning.
Good Luck.

You may want to add the finger support extension to the magazine. I forget the brand but I ordered two and it makes a big difference. Be Leary of the 8 round Kimber mags I had nothing but trouble with them.

Wink Great!!

Glad to hear from a happy Solo owner. Wish you many years of flawless function!!

Keep us informed as to how it's performing every once in a while!! Need more feedback on the good 'uns!!!

Thanks for posting the picture of your Solo. It does appear to be quite small. I have a HUGE HAND and could easily lose that pistol in my palm. It would be good for concealed carry purposes, but a bit hard to control due to minimal grip space for my meat hook of a hand.

Congrats and enjoy your Solo!! Be safe!!
