I tried to post in the classifieds but the system won't let me for some reason. I was planning on picking up a Kimber Solo from a member here a few months ago but tbe gun i was selling to pay for it fell through so i couldn't afford the Soli. Problem is i had already bought a nice holster for it but dont need it now. Its a Mitch Rosen Express leather in Cuban Brown leather and can accept a 1.5" belt. This is brand new and top of the line. If anyone wants it for cheap pm me.

Mods, sorry, not sure why i can't post in the correct section.

Were you shooting quality Ammo or cheap Walmart practice ammo? I rented a recent production one, all stock, and it ran 100% through 50 rounds of Gold Dots. More of a gun you get used to and shoot a few mags through each month to stay proficient with it.

Talking with a guy from Kimber at the SHOT show, I was told the following:

The Solo was made with a number of design compromises in order to get such a small package. One of the requirements is that you use full-power defensive ammo. If you don't, it won't cycle correctly.

So when people report unreliability, let's hear the sort of ammo they used.

That's what I always ask too. It says in the manual what the recommended type of ammo to shoot and 10 min of research before you buy will show you it's made to run on full power ammo which is why I don't understand people that complain they can't run WWB...should have done your homework!
