After all the posts, questions, visiting the gun shops, test firing etc I finally ordered my first gun. It is a 1911 Fusion PRO-Series ELITE Custom in 10mm. If you visit their website the basic model is the No 35. It is a 5" stainless variety with an added bobtail grip. The front sight is a XS Combat white dot front sight with center tritium mid dot. The rear is a Novak style Combat adjustable Tritium Night sight. The trigger is by Fusion Firearms, it is a match grade FUSION Commander HAMMER + Combat trigger group. The hand grips are a smooth wood. I must say I am really looking forward to getting this in. However, being a custom job it is going to be a while. Since I am excited it is going to seem to take even that much longer I am sure.
I haven't heard any bad things about them. Everything I have read has been positive. While I was deciding on what to buy I headed back into Cabelas and they had a Dan Wesson in the case. (I am not sure if Bob (Fusion Owner) was the founder of DW or owner or what) Anyway after looking over that gun and compairing to the others in the case such a Kimber, Colt, Para etc they seemed to be built better. ie, polished feed ramp, no slop in the slide etc. So I figured if the guy who used to do those now fabricates 1911's they should be a nice piece of work. Time will tell.
We "WILL" have pictures and a range report or Todd will come to your house.
Congrats! When is the due date?
and if i may be so tacky what was the price tag?
Thanks... It should be done the 25th of Mayor so. The price was $1800..... I also ordered and STI LS9 that should be here on Tuesday.
Holy smokes $1800 for your first gun. Man what do you aspire to now. Sounds like a nice gun and all but i really think you would have been just as happy with a nice springfield at around 900 to 1200. Even then i feel like that is a lot for a first time gun buyer to spend. I really hope this isnt a faze that comes back to bite you in the end. About dan wesson I have only ever fired one and when my friend and i left the range we were both bleeding from multiple wounds we suffered from metal shavings nicking our necks faces and hands. That was my friends first and last time taking that POS to the range. He soon sold it CHEAP!!!!
