    I took my Solo to the range today for the first time. I am very pleased with it. I broke it in with 50 rounds of Fiocchi 124 grain FMJ, 7 rounds of 147grain Speer Gold Dots, and 14 rounds of 115 grain Hornady Critical Defense. Zero malfunctions! I know it's not that many rounds down range yet, but I am very pleased so far. :thumbup:

    The fit and finish of this gun are outstanding. The coating Kimber uses on this gun is impressive also. It cleans up so easily after the range, it almost seems like non-stick cookware.

    Changed my thread to a review for anyone interested in the Solo.

    Thanks for asking. I forgot to mention that. The trigger is very nice. Pull is smooth all the way through and about five or six pounds I would guess, without a pull gauge.

    And not to shabby at 50 feet either. Also, I just put 100 rounds of Winchester 115 grain FMJ through the Solo with zero hiccups. I have a strong feeling that she will cycle anything at this point. Stoked!

    Ive had occasional problems with 115gr so i stick with 124. Eats american eagle 124 just fine...

    I also scored some 8 round mags and that makes for an easier shooting experience

    And my trigger is 6lbs 11oz ave
