Thread: Kimber Solo

  1. Get what you want. Those solos are beautiful guns and like every new model will have its growing pains. I'd go with it if I had that kind of money for sure. At least its not the diamondback 9mm haha that gun comes with pre postage for its trip back to the manufacturer

    Yeah I want a Solo also. My Cousin had 2 Kimbers. He got rid of 1 because it always needed repair. The one he kept work sweet.All you can do is try. But Kimbers have that kind of reliability. Work great or not so great. Not like some guns that always work most of the time.

    I wouldnt carry a gun that was not 100% reliable ALL the time! I have never owned a Kimber, but for that kind of money it had better be utterly reliable, the few reports here are NOT all that convincing. Wether or not it looks good is irrelavant. Reliability should be the key factor in a personal defense handgun. Just my opinion!

    Yup seems like alot of the pretty guns are questionable in relibility?? But sometimes it's just the first model then they fix them. I'm getting a Sig P238 seems like all the bugs are worked out and I want a purty gun.
    My Carry is a Glock 27 full time. Or my 1911. But neither are purty

    Picked up my new Solo Stainless, cleaned, oiled and took it to the range. Below are the types of ammo used and results.

    -Federal 124gr Hydra Shok JHP: 80 rounds with no problems at all.
    -Federal 135gr Low Recoil Hydra Shok: 40 rounds with no problems at all.
    -Rem. 124gr Golden Saber JHP: 75 rounds with no problems at all.
    -Federal American Eagle 124gr FMJ (range ammo): 50 rounds with no problem.
    -Remington UMC 115gr (which Kimber says not to use) FMJ: 49 rounds with no problem, purposely limp wristed one round and the case did not eject.

    The trigger is by far the crispest one of its class. If you want to feel how different a trigger can be, try the LC9.

    The gun store I bought it from said that they have sold 15 Solos and one had to be sent back to Kimber. The other 14 didn't. It didn't twist in my hand as someone else mentioned. It's small, but it's supposed to be. Ive read many reviews about Solos that don't work. This one worked perfect. Great gun for what it's meant for - a pocket 9 for carry. Drop it in a Cross Breed Super Tuck Deluxe and you'll forget you're carrying.

    Thanks for the great input. I see they now have a Solo CDP for about 500 more. When does it stop?
