When I asked Potter [Winslow Potter is Kimber's director of product management] if the Evo borrowed anything from the plagued Solo, he responded by noting the only similarities the Solo and the EVO have is that they are both made by Kimber and both are striker-fired 9mms-- that's it".
Potential EVO buyers may now breath a sigh of relief.
I would not expect Mr. Potter to claim anything else but that the EVO is totally different.
Proof is in the pudding, time will tell if the EVO is a Hero or another Solo pig! I truly hope it works but I'm not holding my breath.
