Kimber Solo 9mm

The Kimber legacy of offering the finest production firearms available…

The Kimber legacy of offering the finest production firearms available today continues with the Solo™, a new pistol that puts the power of the 9 mm cartridge in a micro-compact size usually reserved for smaller calibers. Power aside, what really sets the Solo apart is quality, dependability and 1911 ergonomics that ensure comfortable shootability regardless of hand size. This all comes together to put Solo performance in a class by itself.

With a barrel length of just 2.7 inches, Solo pistols are easy to carry and conceal. Many of the features borrowed from 1911 pistols also make them exceptionally safe. A manual ambidextrous thumb safety, checkered slide release and ambidextrous magazine release button enable fast and intuitive operation. Then there is the single action striker-fired trigger pull–even and smooth.

Solo frames are machined from the finest aluminum and finished in KimPro II, a premium finish that is self-lubricating and extremely resistant to salt and moisture. Slides and barrels are cut from stainless steel. Edges are rounded and blended, slide serrations are deep enough to really work and the dovetail-mounted 3-dot sights are quick to target. No other small pistol can compare.

    I’d buy 2 SR9c’s and have 2 reliable compact 9 mm carry pieces that are more reliable. Early results are not too favorable on this thing.

    Check the dimensions, Terry M.–it’s a little smaller than the LC9. I’m anxious to get my hands on one to see if it’s actually small enough to fit in my front pocket comfortably.

    Way to expensive! $725 for that? Buy the Ruger LC9 and use the couple hundred bucks you save to buy ammo!

  • No, not .380. You price that stuff lately? 9mm is more powerful, and less expensive. Win/Win. Even if you don’t use the savings to practice more, as one should, if you have to use it it has more guts to do the job.

    Shoulda just made it in .380

    Btw whatever happened to the KPD?
