    SGM Grips Mike is a good guy. SGMGrips.com -
    The magazine extension is actually left over parts from my Kimber Ultra mags I filed down one of the mag base plates on the sides to fit the narrower Solo specs, they are almost identical in every other way, I screwed on the extension and you see the result. Fits my hand well, When I carry it, I carry IWB so the grip length is no matter. I have had carpal tunnel surg, my hands are not what they used to be so I appreciate all the grip I can get.

    Good luck, what ever you shoot!

    Thanks for the reply, i already have a pair of rosewood grips from Mike but i think yours look much better.He does make a nice grip for that gun but i wonder if he does a flat version like the stock grips.Thanks for the reply.

    It looks like youre initial test fires have been successful. I'd say you've got a keeper.

    I remember when PPS and LCP first came out, there was quite a bit of "Internet apprehension"

    Good luck and most important, YOU like it.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    You are correct, sir. People also LOVE to cut down the big-name gun manufacturers whenever they can.

    I hope the good reports keep coming because I've had my eye on one since they came out. Just the size I'm looking for and great lookin' to boot.

    Congrats on your Solo and thanks for the update!

    Went out last night and put another 75-100 rounds through my Solo. Used 115, 124 and 147 grain without any problems. Also have been keeping my clips filled with 6 rounds to loosen the spring and it took care of my problem. I can now carry six rounds and chamber the first without a problem.

    Congrats on your SOLO. I lucked into one at a gun show a couple of weeks ago. Unfired in the box. Guy had it on order for several months and bought a Kahr in the interim. Read some of the Kimber bashing and decided to keep the Kahr and sell the Kimber. I needed one to fill orders for holsters so I jumped on it at MSRP. Just had to shoot it. I like this gun and it may become my EDC. A couple hundred rounds of various ammo down range and no problems.
