Greetings

I am new to this forum. I have several Kimbers Solo STS (brand spanking new), custom Pro CDP II, Kimber Master? All good guns. Am anxious to try the SOLO. I traded some dental work for it.

Welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois konrado. I'd be interested in hearing your impression of your Solo after a trip to the range.

Can do. I have some 137, 145gr ammo which I am going to try. I carry a Sig p938 now and at night I switch to a Sig P290rs with a laser. As a backup I use a Walther PPS in 40 S&W.

First rounds through Solo

Here are the results of my Solo range trip. The is after the 24 round break in as recommended by Kimber. I used 147 gr Lawman ammo $45.00 a box at the range. Ouch! then shot another mag of that ammo 147 gr. Then I tried some white box Winchester 115 gr. It cycled perfectly. I am going to try to post a couple of pix. These were shot at 7 yards

Good to hear that you didn't experience any problems with your Solo, especially when you used the lighter 115 gr.
