My name is Con and I own 3 Kimber 1911s; a three inch in 9mm, a commander in .45 and a full sizeRoyal Blue which was my first 1911, bought 10 or 12 years ago. I'm retired and now work part time in a gun store in Glendale, AZ. We recently had a Solo come thru the store and I was very impressed, especially with the great trigger. I was thinking of buying it, but it was sold the next day. However, I'm still interested in getting one, so look forward to learning more. Thanks

Welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois Con. I don't own a Solo but like you I'm interested in them and have been following the reports of other forum members.

Welcome. Solo's get a lot of attention. I'm going to have to see if I can find one and see what all the fuss is about. You probably couldn't be in a better place to find one.
