First, if I purchased a gun that cost as much as a Solo and I had problems right out of the box I would be pissed too. I don't understand why Kimber can fix this gun after you buy it and not before.AHH Shucks guys, I guess I am just the odd ball here because my brand new Solo SUX!!! and I am not tickled pink just to be fortunate enough to get to call Kimber CS and make friends with the nice people...
The only reason I called CS is to return my POS Solo to the factory in hopes that the fine folks at Kimber will grace me with the quality product that I paid for in the first place, the second time around instead of the first time like all the other gun manufacturers out there.
I guess I'll just make friends with CS and just be happy they let me buy their products (That suck) Then maybe I'll hit the jack pot and get a free grip screw one day...one day, maybe. If I am lucky.
I am starting to think that the majority of Kimber fan boys just buy safe queens and never have a problem because they don't actually use the weapons
I owned a Springfield XDS-45 and the day after I purchased this gun there was a recall and I had to send it back and it was gone for a long time. I didn't even get to shoot it once.The gun was unsafe and I was annoyed but Springfield made the repair and I had no more problems.
I have a S&W M&P 45 and my wife has one in 9mm, both had to be sent in for a recall and a second trip because the white dots wore off sights. S&W took care of this.
I have a Thompson 308 rifle that was also recalled and had to be sent back. They took care of the problem.
I had a Remington 870 super mag that went back to Remington 3x before they refunded my money. If I went on a Remington site and told them this gun sucked they would tell I'm out of my mind, this is the greatest shotgun ever. Well mine was a POS.
I wasn't happy to have to return these guns but I did and in the majority of cases the manufacturer took care of the problem and I hope the same happens for you.
I'm a fan of many guns, I own more S&W guns then Kimber's. You will probably find more people discuss multiple gun brands on this site then any other.
I not here to tell you not to be upset but Kimber isn't the only company to have issues with their guns. The times I've called Kimber their customer service has been great. I'm happy to know they stand by the product just like these other companies.
If your Solo comes back and it still doesn't work, bash it all you want. I would too.
