These guns have feed problems Kimber pulled them off the market and are working on fixing them
My range buddy just got his back from Kimber...after 6 weeks. They installed a newly engineered slide.

We ran over one hundred rounds through it last week with none of the original feed issues.

My local gum shop said they just got one in and it's been months since they had it, I'm assuming the feed issues are fixed but I will call kimber and find out. I may even trade in my AR to get this it's sweet

What flavored gum do they have? Lol j/k. I have been looking at the solo for pocket carry, would like to know if the issues have been resolved?

I have my sig 238 and would like this kimber 9mm but i dont see any real reason to switch from a .380 to 9mm the difference in stopping power isnt all that great

I know that at scheels here in Iowa you can pay for one and they put you on a wait list for them once they get them in. It's good to hear they fixed them as this is a nice small pistol

My local dealer told me that Kimber told him that only their big buyers would get only two Solows at one time. and many of them have not seen any yet. Like Kahr Kimber has started building so many new models at the same time, they can't Mfg. but a few to meet the demand of the buyers.
My local dealer also told me His supplier of Kimber 1911s is telling him 18 Months on many models.
I have the Ultra Carry II .45acp bought five years ago also a Custom TLE II .45acp love them both and glad I bought them five years ago.

I think that it has all the earmarks of a great pistol, after they iron all the bugs out of it.

UPDATE 10/6/11: We went back to the range today and the gun would not fire at all. There was a small dent in the cap of each round, but not enough to cause the gun to fire. We tried three different 9mm rounds...each with the same result.

My buddy sent it back to Kimber yesterday.

This sure does not give me a good feeling about Kimbers new striker handgun. You would think they would make sure each one worked before shipping them.
I am not sure Kimber is even the Mfg. of their new SoLo, maybe it's been out sourced.
