Coming soon is the Kimber Solo Carry 9mm, a lightweight handgun about the size of the Kel-Tec .380.  It’s about half an inch longer and wider in barrel and handle with a weight comparable to the loaded FN Fiveseven — easily a well-concealable sidearm that would be perfect for that undercover operative or officer.

They haven’t hit the stores yet, so the specs for James Bond: 007 RPG are speculative, but should be close.  The internals look to be a striker fired weapon like the Glock, but with the same barrel and recoil spring assembly as the 1911 (which Kimber excels at.)

PM: 0   S/R: 2   AMMO: 6   DC: E   CLOS: 0-2   LONG: 8-14   CON: -4   JAM: 92+   DR: +1   RL: 1   COST: $750

UPDATE! Having talked to several owners of the Solo here in New Mexico, it seems to be more than finicky on it’s ammunition. The JAM rating represents the Solo shooting 124grain and higher ammo. If using the mil-spec or junk 115 grain you’re likely to find (or lighter self-defense loads like the Pow-R-Ball, the jam is 85+. And that’s being kind.

For the Kimber haters, there’s also the Ruger LC9 coming soon — a bit larger (an inch on the barrel and a half inch on the grip) than the Solo, but about the same weight.

PM: 0   S/R: 2   AMMO: 7   DC: E   CLOS: 0-2   LONG: 8-14   CON: -3   JAM: 98+   DR: +1   RL: 1   COST: $500
