Kimber Solo Update

Went to the range and fire 100 rounds with no problems. My edc has been my Ruger LCP with Lehigh ammo which has always been problem free. If the Solo continues to be problem free then it will replace my Ruger.

That's good news about your Solo. What is your round count number going to be to call it good to go for EDC? I would think because of some of the known issues some Solo's have had it would be a pretty high number, at least in the 400-500 range? At least it would be for me.

Some Rosewood or at least Rosewood colored grips would look very nice on there.

Kimber Solo

I would say 500 rounds is a good number without issues.
Its a great looking gun with rounded edges, but I think Kimber dropped the ball on this one.
There's so many people that would like to buy it but with so many issues. I think after machining they assemble and ship without putting the time into them. Its not like there giving them away. Kimber Solo could have been the best selling 9mm on the market.
When will companies wake up????
