Replaced the LG grips on my SOLO CDP with stock black grips from Kimber and headed for the indoor pistol range.

A couple of rounds of 124gr FMJ down the pipe and my hand was complaining. I eventually quit after only 50 rounds.

So.....it's back to the LG grips or look for thick rubber aftermarket grips for my SOLO....like the rubber grips that came on my SIG P938.

That made a lot of sense, removing laser grips that cost about $350.00 and replacing with standard grips, and what did that have to do with more snappy?

Much that I tell you goes over your head. Does you wife lead you around by the hand each day. You seem to be incapable of understand anything in basic handgun use.....:rolleyes:

Wife died last April, no one to lead me but you! I still don't understand why you would want to remove $350.00+ laser grips for standard black grips, and what does that have to do with recoil? Things like this makes me wonder if you have been left out in the arizona sun to long!

I can plainly see you nothing but a bitter old fart who refuses to understand anything outside your own little world.

You'll always be nothing more than a whiner.

No need to respond to me here, I'll be spending my time on the Beretta/SIG/Glock/Colt forums.

Being retired, you're not that young yourself. That said, I have to wonder too, about the grip change. I understand wanting to go to a thick rubber grip but did we miss something about why you removed the LG grips? Was there another post we were supposed to read before this one?
Looking at the Kimber web site, it appears to me all the grips, for the solo, are about them thickness. I do see a small difference with the LGs but is it really that much? Sorry, take your football and leave the field if you like. But your statement, in the original post seems incomplete.

Easy guys, we're all friends here. I don't own a Solo but my son owns a Sig .45 with crimson trace grips and the checkering gives you a lot of grip. It's possible the original rubber Solo grips were slipping in gwbikers hand allowing the Solo to move and making it feel like the gun was kicking more.

Understood Chuck. But in the end, you're just guessing too. There just isn't a connected thought in the story.

You must have been having a really bad day to spout out something like that. I don't agree with everything that everyone posts here but I would never personally attack them.

You're right it was a guess, I was just trying to come up with a semi reasonable explanation that would calm everyone down.

Both grips are plastic, The laser grips have a small rubber switch conecting the two grips, this lights the laser when griped. Other than that there is not much difference. Cost on standard grips is about $50.00 from Kimber. The Crimson Trace laser Grips that comes with the Kimber Solo CDP LG cost about $389.00.
Unless he was selling them I can't see why they were removed.
I think GW has a problem because I gave the Solo a poor rating, along with several other people. This site is for the purpose of venting, praising, helping, others and trying to get answers to problems. Because I vented the problems I have with the Solo, he claims I am inexperienced, and a winner. As I have stated other people shot this gun and have had the same results that I am having! If that makes me a winner, so be it. I still would like to know why he would cheapen a $1200.00 gun? I don't think the question was out of line!

I'll report back on my next range trip. I've run 124 and 147 gr. through mine with no issues, and that was after testing a bunch of 10mm and .357SIG loads on some other guns. The Solo and even my LCP didn't seem to be very snappy.

My Solo is the STS model, and with no checkering whatsoever, you've really got to hold on tight, or the shots go where they want to. I was shooting at 10 yds, as well.

Accuracy is superb with the Solo, now if they can get it to eject the spent round with out jamming I will be a happy camper. The failure to eject happens 7% to 10% of the time. Generally the 3-4th round in the magazine. But not limited to.
