New From Georgia

Hi, All. I recently bought a used Solo but haven't had the opportunity to shoot it yet. I keep reading about the need to set "the spring" correctly after field disassembly. What does this mean and what are the consequences of not setting it correctly? Thanks.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Solo51, I'm not a Solo owner so I can't help you but we have a bunch of very knowledgeable Solo owners that you should be hearing from.

Welcome to the forum from StLou...
Failure to install the slide stop below the spring will cause the slide to lock open while firing.

Here's a little info...

How to fix a Kimber Solo when slide locks open after every shot
