What would you do? Kimber CS
I got a Kimber Solo right when they came out at $725. I really fell in love with the gun and I have a Kahr PM9 and a Robrbaugh R9. Only problem after 300 rds was the finish was rubbed off inside the frame where the recoil spring collar had evendently contacted it. That is not how it is supposed to roll.
Also, the mag release was hard to eject a full mag, but not an empty, but I felt that it should not be so hard you needed two hands to press. Of course, an empty was not an issue.
I explained the issues to Kimber CS. Was told they would pay the shipping both ways and would evaluate the issues. They received the gun back March 28th. On April 15th, I called back to get a status on the gun. Was told that they could not tell me, but were waiting for the manufacture of the mag release buttons. Was told that they would call me when they were ready to ship back. They said, they were running about 14 day turn around, of course it had been longer than that.
Now...as of May 20th, no word. I am getting concerned that it is an engineering problem or worse. Since then I have been told without verification that Kimber had ceased production of the Solo.
What would you do? Call and insist a new gun. Call and insist my money back. Call and get more info and hang on? I just don't like buying a new gun and sending it for a month or longer repair. Whata you think?
