Just curious if anyone here has had any dealings with Fusion Firearms, they are a custom 1911, and 1911 only company and from what i see from their site make wonderful looking 1911's and for good prices too! Hell if my Ruger 1911 dont show up soon maybe ill get one of these. So far maybe there Standard Scout model with alil bit changed.....

Not saying that they are all bad, but there are things that i personally saw that changed my mind when i was going to order one a few years ago. It seems like the older ones were put together better than the current ones.

Also they use frames/slides from a few different sources, namely Remsport and STI, so if you are buying a kit, i don't see a problem

The one representation of Fusion is always the "Hail Caesar" experience.
That turned me off from Fusion as a builder. I may use their slide & frame for a home build.

When it comes to Fusion, the topic gets heated responses, so he was just putting that up before hand.

No, Fusion doesn't make their own frames.

Yes, Bob Serva used to own Dan Wesson. There is a difference in quality from when he owned it to the present DW (owned by CZ-USA)
The Serva era DW's were nowhere near the quality of the CZ-USA DW's.

and to make things clear, here's a quote from Bob Serva in regards to the frames.

We have 4 suppliers for frame cores, 3 for forgings and 1 for Castings, They supply us cores and we finish machining them here in NY or at our PA Machining location.

From what I have seen, pissing matches sometimes break out between those happy with Fusion and those not so happy with the product and/or Bob himself.

there are a lot of fanboy's out there, then there are people that see what they might get (from pics that they post). one may be happy with the results, other's would be extremely pissed.

for instance, someone ordered a "custom" built gun requesting NO Browning cut's or ball cuts, while it's not what he ordered, that's what he received. I for one would've sent it back to make the gun that I ordered.
another ordered a kit for i think a 9mm, and received a .40S&W and got a bit of the run around.

then there's fit, such as this grip safety. i've seen plenty of them like this, which i personally wouldn't be satisfied with seeing it's a "custom" gun.





compared to my "production" springfield.



the fanboy's will say that the Fusion fit was do to polishing, while other would say it's just sloppy.

so look at a wide variety of examples and see it it's something that you would be happy to spend your money on.

Nobody was uncivil at all bro. Just like what Don said, I have seen these discussion about Fusion get WAY out of hand on other forums and I didn't want it to happen here. I personally have no experience with Fusion products, so I don't participate in the discussions.

are there Fusion's for $1000? the ones i've seen have been +$1500. IIRC, the one i was going to have Bob build me was $1700

for $1000, the STI Trojan or Ranger II would be might personal choice.
