Just joined the conversation...

Hello all,
I just "bit the bullet" and signed up for Kimber Forum as my first-ever forum. Until now I've been a consumer, not a contributor. But this forum helped me sort out problems with my Kimber Solo Carry DC, so now I'll try to return the favor from time to time.

I've attached photos of my Solo. I'm on my first slide/barrel, my third frame (thanks Kimber for making it right), and second trigger--the RTK Contour (thanks Warthogge and Ratmando73 for sharing instructions on Kimbertalk to give me a clue on making the swap).

More than 1,000 rounds fired, about a third of which was premium ammo, a third commercial plinking rounds, and a third my reloads--the last 200 rounds after the last warranty repair have been flawless. No FTFs, no FTEs, and highly accurate. I now have a concealed carry, self defense pocket pistol that I trust and love. Hope everyone finds the same.
