Hello.,new to the forum, new Kimber Solo owner. Unfortunately, I appear to have a serious FTL issue with my pistol. I broke it down, cleaned and lubed before firing. I used premium 124gr JHP and experienced a 90% ftl rate (I am able to load the round by pulling the slide further back and releasing), switched to some american eagle 124gr fmj with the same results. I brought it home, performed another thorough cleaning/lube and am waiting to try it again.
I expected more from this pistol due to the brand name and price point. I have plenty of other pistols that just work. This is a disappointment.
I haven't dealt with Kimber support before, but I am already starting to investigate my options due to the poor initial showing
Update: after reviewing the assembly video I am not entirely confident I had the assembly spring inserted correctly. It is now, but I can't be for sure it was when I shot earlier today and from everything I have been reading it makes sense for the number of ftl 's I experienced. Looking forward to getting back to the range.
