Lurker no more

Despite my efforts to lurk in anonymity, I'm introducing myself after encouragement to do so by Chuck43.

The name is Rob, I live securely behind the Orange Curtain in Southern California. I play with antique stationary engines, I play with guns. If you need me, you'll find me in the krav maga studio or up in the mountains on my mountain bike.

I've been shooting for many decades, and recently picked up my first Kimber. It's a beautiful creation of aluminum, steel, and wood. Sadly, for defensive purposes, a stick or a rock would be more effective. The folks in Yonkers have my Solo right now, and I'm confident that they'll be able to turn it into the sweet little pistol that it was intended to be.

Welcome to the forum from st-lou.
I too once had a Solo that was a $800 paperweight and almost threw it quite a few times.
I sent it back to the mothership in Yonkers for a tune up and when it returned..
It went bada bing bada BOOM from that moment on..
Keep the faith...

Cool Hey Ya'll!

Welcome to the forum from beautiful downtown Monroe, Georgia!!!

Have faith in Kimber's customer service department. They will return your Solo in good working order. They are just a step below Houdini when it comes to working magic!!! Their sole function is to make Kimber pistols perform up to customer expectation!!!

Send us some picture and a range report when you get your Solo back. We love seeing and hearing about our favorite pistols!!!
