Hey Here!! (It's a Southern Thing!!!)
Welcome to Kimber Talk from beautiful downtown Monroe, Georgia!!!

Sorry to hear that you are having feeding issues with your new Solo. If you have cleaned and lubed it according to Kimber recommendations and are using the correct weight ammo, there is only one more possible cure to try. Load up the magazines to full capacity and let them set for a week or so like that. That should relax the follower spring a bit and make the first round go in a bit more freely. If that fails, you will just have to persevere with trying to contact Kimber Customer Service. Once you make contact, I assure you that they will make your Solo perform up to your expectations. Their service dept if well know for making problems go away and pistols perform up to expectations.
As for the problems of contacting Kimber Customer Service, I will apologize for that one on behalf of AT&T. The use of menus and attempting to perform the same amount of work with fewer employees was pioneered by AT&T back in the mid-8o's. According to the AT&T's MIT "bean counters", it works. Of course, they aren't the ones stuck on hold or being passed around so many times that they grew a handle!! From my experience with this, as an employee prior to my retirement, all I can say is that it is extremely frustrating and annoying!! Every time the higher ups asked for suggestions as to how to improve customer satisfaction, I told them that when customers call in, they want to speak to someone with a pulse, not a machine or a recorded menu. They never took the suggestion. Other businesses thought that if it worked for AT&T, it would work for them. Big surprise, the only ones that are happy are the "bean counters" who dreamed this lousy scheme up!! They dreamed it up, told the company how great it worked and yet were never held responsible for the dissatisfaction of the customers. The higher ups still have no clue!! DUH!!
Hey Kimber, you need some more bodies to answer the phones. Warm bodies are preferred!! Zombies need not apply!!
Once again, on behalf of AT&T, SORRY!!
