7 inch 1911 slide

New from Fusion in 2017 our 7-Inch 1911 Slide. Paired with one of our 7-Inch UMG Barrels. This is an absolute monster of a slide and we are extremely excited to work on perfecting it this year. Let us know what you think. Also you can check out what 7-Inch barrels we have for sale at http://www.fusionfirearms.com/parts/...-grade-barrels

Well, I have not seen a 7 inch slide configuration in years, since the AMT days. Now you have my interest. Tell us more.

Sweet! Looks like a quality replacement for the AMT Javalina.

Is the extractor tunnel different between the .45 and .38 Super?

Otherwise, set them all up for the "9mm" firing pin and ejector slot, and the only difference would be the breechface width.

It is, but slides are measured from the breech face to the back of the ejection port. That 7-Inch span compensates for the barrel to fit. Just like government(5-Inch) slides are larger than 5 inches.

7" Barrel length, not slide length.

Doh! Homer Simpson moment for me. Thanks for the clarification.

.45 Super or 10mm. You'd need some umph to move that mass.

Naw. Just a lighter recoil spring. That is what is used with comp guns.

.357 SIG

I wouldn't mine seeing the ballistics on that, as well as 10MM.

10mm built on a 2011 frame with a steel grip and a milled in reflex.

That would make for a sweet hunting pistol.

I am partial to the .460 Rowland and 10mm for hunting pistols. I agree with the member who suggested it would be great milled for a red dot and fitted to a 2011 frame.

Back a few years ago I thought the 7" AMT longslides were fugly. But after building a 1911 with a 6" slide, the 7" was looking a lot more reasonable.

The 6" slide steadies my sight picture a lot, and I like the balance. Enough that I'd been keeping an eye out for an old AMT slide, and had wondered about splicing a couple of slides together like the mad skillz smiths back in the day.

If the price is reasonable, I'd give a 7" slide a try.

Very interested

I signed up for the forums just to follow this thread, I've been waiting for a company to do this!

I do I have one question though, will it only be in stainless or will there be a carbon steel version?

Either way I'm gonna start saving up!
