I joined last year but due to a computer crash, lost my password and user name.
Waited for the email to reset the password but it never came so I re-joined under
a new email, user name and password. Hope I didn't step on any toes by doing so.
Anyway, as an introduction, I'm a 66 year old retired LEO, Vietnam Vet 68-69 and a
TET Survivor for both years. I have a small farm, just 28 acres in East TN, my own
shooting range and dog that loves me and a
wife that does too.
I recently acquired a SOLO Carry SS to go with my Kimber Master Carry I bought
when I joined last year and have a question about it. The not so gun savvy gentleman
I got it from had re-assembled it and put the
slide stop spring on top of the slide stop and not in the provided groove.
It would not hold the slide back and so he, being the not so savvy
individual he is, jumped at the chance to trade it off for a for a Beretta
NANO I had. Took me about 5 minutes to figure out something was
wrong, disassemble it, bend the spring back in place and reassemble
it. Shot 25 rounds of Hornady 147 gr XTP thru it without a hitch.
But, I'd like to know if anyone can tell me where to get a new slide
stop spring or do I have to go thru Kimber for one. I really like this
SOLO SS. With a loaded mag, it weighs the same 20.7 ounces as my
KAHR PM9, but being used to carrying a 1911 for most of my career
(41 years) I like the feel and ergonomics of the SOLO better by far.
