glad to find a Kimber forum.
I got good news and bad news.
own a Grand Raptor II , and just love the firearm . looks and function are flawless.
but that is not the reason I sought out a Kimber forum..
I also own a Solo.. and now for the bad news..
failure to fire ,,, extreme difficulty in depressing the mag release button.
I can work with the mag release .. the failure to fire is a problem..
I keep getting light striker . the primer has a slight indent , but the gun goes click , not bang.
I have contacted Kimber ( great service so far ) this is the 5th return , the third return was corrected by Kimber sending a brand new Solo,, which was returned for the : FTE . FTF . mag release problem..
upon getting the second Solo back, the gun ran flawless, 580 rounds, which then qualified the Solo as a carry .. the mag release is still way too tight.
then pulled the Solo while at range to run a couple of rounds thru,, click.
any one have any knowledge of the corrective action for the light stiker failure to fire ? help ....
