With a durable, lightweight aluminum frame and stainless steel slide and barrel, the Solo Carry offers a host of features that make it the most accurate, shootable and dependable ultra-compact pistol available today.
Solo pistols combine Kimber quality and 9mm power in a package that weighs just 17 ounces. Borrowing proven 1911 ergonomics, they also have natural pointability that improve speed and accuracy while making them comfortable to shoot.
With a barrel length of just 2.7 inches, Solo pistols are perfect for backup and concealed carry. Features taken from 1911 pistols also make them exceptionally safe. A manual ambidextrous thumb safety, checkered slide release lever and ambidextrous magazine release button enable fast and intuitive operation. Then there is the double action striker-fired trigger that provides a smooth, consistent pull.
All Solo frames are machined from the finest aluminum, while slides and barrels are cut from stainless steel. Edges are rounded and blended so they cannot hang up, slide serrations are deep, and the large sights are quick to target. With a design so innovative it holds several patents, the critical advantages of Solo creates a new standard of performance.
