    6625ABEE-2F8C-4F70-A97F-246DE10843E6.jpeg So I bought a Fusion CCO in 9mm today. I don’t know anything about their Freedom Series other than it’s their mass production line. It appears to be a decently built gun and since the guy I bought it from only wanted $600 and it came with a nice range bag, a set of VZ grips as well as the original grips and a nice IWB leather holster I figured I’d give it a shot. Whenever it gets where it’s not too wet or too cold outside I’ll let y’all know how it performs.

    I have a Freedom Series Fusion in 9mm. Of four 1911's in 9mm I've owned it's the only one I've kept. Runs like a sewing machine, and shoots great. Keep an eye on how it extracts. My extractor crapped out early on. Lost its tension, wouldn't extract. I fit a Wilson Bulletproof and have had no problems since.

    I took my daughter out today to shoot her Bantam 9mm IN THE COLD. We had a great time. She has some rust on her, but she fired probably 150 rounds. Hers had 1 failure to extract.

    The only thing about the Bantam is, it does not like Wilson mags. The pistol only came with one Mec Gar, and so I bought some Wilson when they had the Christmas sale. It did not like them at all, so I am using them with something else.

    I think I have run both Wilsons and Tripp's, but my Fusion seems to like Dawsons (which I'm sure are Metalforms) the best.

    I’ve been eyeing that very same pistol the last couple of weeks. I will be very interested in what you have to say about it after getting some range time with it.
    Nice looking pistol, I like everything about it.

    I have a 9mm Fusion Freedom Government GI. Very good fit and finish and quite accurate. I am seriously considering their Reaction Model next.

    I’m looking at the riptide C. Went into a gun shop that carries Fusion Freedom series. Didn’t have the model I want but the ones they had, have really nice triggers and feel really well built for the money.

    I’m in for your feedback. I love me some CCO 1911’s. You got a great deal.
