I put another 100 rounds through the Solo STS today making a total of about 300 and happy to say no FTE or FTFs. Shot 135g Federal, 124g Hornady, and 124g Remington as recommended. The Federals seem to be best though all were accurate. I'm starting to really like this gun. Very accurate - making one large hole from 3 shoots fired it was that close together and I'm just a novice. Actually used a fingerless glove which helped a lot with racking the slide. The only thing was with the Remingtons the slide would not stay open after final shot. What is this telling me? I know I caught the little spring when reassembling it.

Great to hear the goods news.I have about 400 through mine without any issues and have tried 4 different types of ammo.As far as the slide issue,I would try that ammo again and if it happens again don't use it.Might have been just a fluke but as the old saying goes.."Trust but verify".

Another 40 rounds (124 gr Blaser) through the pistol on Saturday. 2-inch groupings at 7 yards - about 3.5 inch at 10 yards.
This is a very accurate little pistol. Great carry gun.
No failures to feed in probably 400 rounds. However, I did have the magazine back out after the first shot on Saturday. Slammed it home. No more issue.

I double checked that I had hooked the little spring.
The slide never stayed back not one time with the Remington with about 5 magazines loads
It did not stay back once with the Hornadys but always did with the Federals.
Maybe this will work itself out???
