Hi all,

On my first trip to the range with my new (used) Solo - I had the noob problem with the slide release not being hooked under the retention spring so I got slide lock with each round fired.

Today, I fixed that issue until that retention spring came loose and stopped functioning - back to the slide locking back every round. One end of the spring is bent at 90 deg and fits in a pinhole in the handle - this is the end that popped out twice today. I'm trying to reach Kimber for a replacement spring. Anyone have a similar problem?

I also noticed that a hole in the center of the slide (hole for a roll pin) shaves the bases of each round as the slide cycles before loading. I'm seeing some brass shavings in the gun when I clean it. Anyone have a good fix for that - or is it nothing to worry about?
