I too picked one up recently, an STS. While I had heard about the problems too I like the Solo over the SIG 938.

Mine shot 80+ rounds with only one FTF, I purposely limp-wristed the gun to see what would happen. Some of those 80 were 115gr FMJ that Kimber says might not work.

Little gun was extremely accurate as well. Well pleased with my Solo.

I have had mine a few days and have run a couple hundred rounds through it, none of the problems I read about.

The guy I got it from was anxious to get rid of it in my opinion. I am sensing a lot of OE with this gun. I don't think it deserves the bad rap its getting.

That said, make sure you put it together correctly according to the manual, and maybe watch a couple youtube videos on how to assemble.

This is a keeper AFAIAC.

Are you saying it failed to eject, or failed to fire when you fired with a 'limp wrist'?

I toted this thing all weekend in a DeSantis pocket holster, forgot it was there! This is one small 9mm!

Going to the range today and finish the break in on this gem! Taking a box of ball and see how it does.

I just returned from a 600 mile motorcycle trip. I carry mine in a Desantis IWB holster and it is great. Love the gun and holster.

So I went to the range today and ran a hundred rounds of PMC ball ammo through the Solo without so much as a hiccup! I have no qualms at all about using this gun a an EDC. I'll get him a new spring for his birthday next year.

This is a lot of gun in a very small package!
